Post-Punk Junk
June 29, 2007 4:43 PM   Subscribe

The late great Post-Punk Junk was once the smartest, best curated music blog on the net. Then it disappeared. Now it has been reborn as a cable access style tv show. Anyone interested in what was happening with music during the years 1979-1985 (roughly) should definitely check this out. Yaheardme? Episodes collected here and here. Check out a spooky looking Nico and Cabaret Voltaire and PIL and Gang of Four and Yellow Magic Orchestra.

This used to be my favorite blog! I still have fond memories of downloading stuff like an interview/confrontation between Jello Biafra and Tipper Gore on an Oprah show from the 1980s! Thanks for letting us know that it's back!
