Space Bop #333    January 22, 2006

The Canadian Post-Punk Scene revisited

With all the renewed interest in the post-punk era of the late 70's/early 80's, today's show is featuring an all-Canadian line-up, to prove that Canada produced its share of quality music during the strongest musical period of the post rock 'n roll era. And we will actually more than meet Canadian content requirements! Much of this music is very obscure and difficult to find, but some reissues can be found, and a number of collections have been more recently assembled. If you're new to this it should be a treat; if you know this music from the first time around, it may very well bring back fond memories.
