Man, kind of been struggling between whether this thread is needed or not. I sat up in the search bar looking at old punk and post-punk related stuff. And there's great conversations and topics about the genres and the artists that belong to them, but I failed to find a thread that had those stories, album/artist recommendations, sound quality questions on specific releases/re-releases and remasters, anywhere! It all just falls to the wayside. There's one for Jazz, Classical, Country, Heavy Metal and Hard Rock, but nothing for the Punks? What!?! So I thought melding the two genres as well as their sub-genre counterparts (80s Hardcore, Darkwave, Coldwave Minimal wave etc.) I could make a grotesque abomination of a music thread that can be home to all of that. Conversation and all. So whether its New York's CBGBs or London's Batcave or you're just seeking refuge from all the Beatles threads raining down hard on the Forum. Enjoy the rain from under this umbrella. Forecast shows its gonna rain Beatles for a long time... Here goes.
