Formed from the suggestions of others in the mark I poll. So not guilty your honour.

What?!?!? No Chrome?!?!!!!
Madness! 
What no Madness either?!?!??!!!!!!!Angry The world is without meaning anymore......

Nah I'm just pulling your legTongue Polls on PA are basically here to illustrate what people have besides the options at hand.

As for this one......impossible to choose. Part of me wants to vote for Dean's favourite band, while the other is screaming for Wire and The Fall....hmmm I'll get back to ya.

The Fall, although This Heat is pretty close behind. All good bands, again.

One of the cruelest polls ever devised on PA as I could have voted emphatically for at least 12 different artists
Damn you House of Cheese, there is a sweltering 24 hour underground sun in Hell awaits youEvil Smile


Voted for Television, as for me they ushered in a mode of guitar vocabulary that dispensed with the prevailing over reliance on blues scales and phrasing etc. This begat the sort of quirky harmonic dissonances and detours of Talking Heads, XTC, Bunnymen, Monochrome Set, Cure, Banshees etc

For me it's a very very close tie between The Fall and Killing Joke. I find the former to be the objectively better band of the two, but the latter is the one I've listened the most to if that makes sense...

Voted for Killing Joke. They're probably the music group who have in recent years meant the most to me in terms of expanding my horizons. I probably wouldn't have grasped neither industrial nor punk on their own terms if it weren't for Jaz Coleman and co.

The only band I know from this poll is Dexy's Midnight Runners and even the known track is mentioned, come on Eileen :) I voted for them as I really like that track but I don't think they are punk and/or when punk was dead nor anything related with and after punk tho'?

Went for The Sound in this list, but would have voted Comsat Angels or The Icicle Works over them in an instant.

The Skids for a close second, though I don't think they ever reached their potential. I saw them supporting The Stranglers back in nineteen o'blimey and they were terrific live.

Didn't have to think too hard here - THE FALL!

Next in line would be Wire, followed by the Soft Boys.

Kati, as I said I took the bands for this poll from those suggested in Mark I .  And as you came up with Dexy's, I decided to include them just for you. I am being slightly naughty though, as they are a little wide of the traditional Post Punk genre.  But, it gave you something to vote for. Smile

THe Comsat Angels were on my list and I forgot them at the very last moment. You can blame Kati for that.  These girls are so distracting Wink

The Sound is one of the few of these I have not heard of.  Must check out.
