I'm Living in the 80's: Disc Six

       I don't have much to say about this sixth volume of mostly post-punk 80s music, other than it's probably the last one and that you can still download volumes 3-5.   Oh, and I am aware that it's beyond obvious to start this last volume with Killing Joke's Eighties, but I was a pretty obvious fellow for much of the 1980's so it seemed apropos.


Eighties Killing Joke
Infected The The
Natural's Not In It Gang Of Four
If You Were A Priest Robyn Hitchcock And The Egyptians
Looking From A Hilltop Section 25
The Ability To Swing Thomas Dolby
Come On The Hoodoo Gurus
She's Lost Control Joy Division
Down On Me Jesus And Mary Chain
Desire (Come And Get It) Gene Loves Jezebel
World Shut Your Mouth Julian Cope
Bad Life Public Image Ltd.
Columbus The Church
2 Boys Bauhaus
When Your Dream Of Perfect Beauty Comes True Bill Nelson
Smalltown Boy Bronski Beat
Ivo Cocteau Twins
You Cause As Much Sorrow Sinead O'Connor

Called "The Haties" by some of my compatriots, I still feel that although it may not have been the era for the music that was music to my ears, a lot of good stuff did appeal. Evidenced here by the Bronski's, Cope, Nelson & Joy Division for example, even PIL! Thanks for compiling the mix.

There were definitely some production values that predominated in the eighties that don't hold up too well 20-30 years later. While it may be an excess of nostalgia, I still maintain my fondness for a lot of the postpunk stuff from that era.
