    punk

    Post by undo on Mon Jan 30, 2017 4:46 pm

    I shouldn't be surprised because these kind of changes are always happening, but the earth is always moving under our feet and some people accept this quicker than others. Maybe some people were like "Elvis is still important, why don't people care about him anymore?" in like 1991 and really didn't get it.

    When I started boarding on somb, it was common knowledge that the Greatest Bands were the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd...and the Ramones and the Clash. And it always felt like status of those last two bands would only continue to grow and eventually overshadow those others that came before them, but I can't be alone in the feeling that our culture, even the music-obsessive sliver of it, has just decided to forget about them?

    There's this idea that punk only thrives in oppressive environments but its legacy during the eight years of GW was not much more than this and this (or I'm forgetting something but it had better be at least as big a deal as either of those) and those were the years that everyone who was woke decided to celebrate poptimism, discover dance music, trash conscious hip-hop and celebrate the sound and culture of rap that was about...some other stuff.

    People don't even listen to Wire anymore, do they? Talking Heads are cool insofar as they were pioneering electronic beats and African rhythms.

    I played guitar for 2 years in high school and could never muster the coordination to play more than like 3 Buzzcocks songs. For most of us, playing instruments is really hard and I guess I can see why nobody who didn't come up through school band and piano lessons when they were really young would even want to try. You can work hard at it and put your ass on the line and it seems like we're in a world where either nobody will care or you'll get called out for trying too hard.

    This was a low-effort post but there might be more to come.

    I listen to Wire, Wipers, This Heat, Joy Division and a bunch of other 70s/80s post punk bands quite often.

    Talking Heads are a band I've tried multiple times to get into but they've never fully clicked.

    This should be a good thread though!

    Based on your comments, undo, you must be referring to the Read Burn era. Maybe the 70s trilogy era? Certainly not The Drill era.

    I'd owe it to anyone who'd want to do this with me to actually put some real work into practicing first.

    I have major imposter's syndrome so I think I could work at it for years and never feel like I was ready.

    I'm talking about all of it but I've largely glossed over the Drill era and that's probably okay.

    I guess I mean, like, The Minutemen are cool because they're actually more like a jazz band and The Fall are art punks and X-Ray Spex were really feminist but when there's no narrative or any shade of indie appeal, dudes who play guitar are treated with nothing but suspicion.

    This song is terrible and literally the most boring thing you could write about 9/11.

    They were so, so good but we were all like "no, this is what Paste/Pitchfork readers want" and they were more than happy to oblige us all.

    I've never been able to get into S-K. I don't enjoy a couple songs per album but have never become a fan.

    I was listening to Public Image Ltd's debut today though and was reminded how outstanding it is. Some good post punk right there!

    All of those individuals boarders mean what they are saying, except for possibly the first one.
