Contributions - John Robb: Death To Trad Rock

In the 1980s, the charts overflowed with what felt to many like the most boring pop music ever made – and the underground exploded.

The post-punk scene was a diverse collection of bands brought together by independent releases and aided by reportage in fanzines and airplay by John Peel.

This is the first time this era of music has been analysed in such depth, exploring the loose confederation of noisenik outfits including Three Johns, The Membranes, The Ex, Wedding Present, A Witness, Bogshed and Big Flame.
