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 house of cheese strikes againCool

Oh and Kati: the post punk sticker is really just that, a sticker. Just like prog rock actually. Big difference between Yes and Henry Cow. Post punk is just a name for the music that came in the wake of punk - some of it even came from that exact scene. 

Personally I hear a lot of progressive tendencies from this scene, and if you at some point decide to check out some more of this, you'll be facing everything from pop, art rock, synth pop/rock, avantguarde, cabaret, country, blues and everything in between. Most of it does however sport a certain 'snarl' if you will - something that points back to where it came from, ze punk........even if the band in question isn't punkLOL Wow...I went ahead and confused myself yet again.

Sonic Youth are another that could easily be on this poll.
