Golden Throats of Post-Punk Show - 3/9/09

The singers of post-punk are the best singers in the world, bar none. Don't believe that good singing has to be a certain way, hitting certain notes, and caterwauling with certain divas on VH1. Singing is about creating a character to your music, something completely unique and distinct but still something people can relate to. That's what post-punk and new wave bands did so well. They'll never get the credit they deserve but they did get a show dedicated to them. Download it yourself from:
