It’s been a while since the last tape, but who’s counting?
I like “punk music” (I think?) And so by default I should like some things that sound punk, but I don’t always. So here are some bands that I’ve always considered “punk” bands despite the fact that they don’t sound or look like the generic punk. I was tempted to chuck in stuff like Oingo Boingo, The Cramps, Communiqué even Cold Cave for some reason, stuff that have/has/had ties to punk but haven’t been co-oped and exist in their own right.
But this tape came mainly from my favouritism for the Replacement’s sound and everything in-between.
