80s Post Punk Alternative Breakthrough!
Yes, I could've gone obscure with groups hardly heard of and tracks near impossible to find, but what good would that do, for a feel-good mix tape? Maybe some day I'll post a couple obscure Post Punk albums and bands, but not a mix tape.
A mix tape has got to be pretty. Go back to the movie High Fidelity and refresh. I want the tapes to be good to listen to from the very first track, all the way to the very last. If that means I have to sacrifice a little integrity to make it a little glossy, so be it.
If you feel that some of these tracks aren't Post Punk, well, too bad. This is my blog not yours. Don't download it and don't listen to it. Just let me know which ones should stay, which ones should go, which ones to add. I don't mind hearing opinions, just don't expect me to change it just because you don't feel it meets the criteria I set.
I mean this all in good jest. I just want you to know how my teenage heart remembers Post Punk, that's all.
Again, I've included the "covers" should you want to make them CDs. Just print and fold in half, and they'll slide into almost any jewel case.
Again, if you want to load these tracks, in this order onto your ipod or whatever, you're going to have to go back and relabel the files, as these files aren't labelled for crap. I'm the old school drop-&-burn, so that stuff means nothing to me.
I sincerely hope you enjoy, and comment if you want.
