1. Mongoloid - Devo
I would have selected this but I used it last week. Such a titanic banger of a single.
But what is punk or post punk? I mean is it a single or is it an ep? It's a confusing world for sure. 🤣
I almost got cheeky and selected Television's Johnny Jewel to posit pre-post-punk

Nearly put Jocko Homo (A-side of my UK Stiff single), but you've gotta do ya research round here to spot it was flipped from the original Booji Boy release. IMHO - it's more post-punk than punk, but like some choices above it's 'borderline'.
Well whatever it is we can all agree it's great music. :approve:
Thank You For The Music ;)

Some time ago, I made a tentative claim that the New York punk scene (plus Devo and Pere Ubu) also created post-punk at the same time as punk. Mostly tongue-in-cheek, but more a comment about how pregnant with ideas things were right off the bat, before the Ramones and Dead Boys aesthetic came to be the popular idea of what punk was.

Punk put forward as post punk fact or as a basis for top 5 argument.

yeah, i think the new york scene basically birthed those sounds simultaneously. If anything, the Ramones were the weird outliers for a few years sound-wise in nyc punk.

Indeed, and when I'm done with postulating I shall venture a good posit :shifty:

Yeah there's a ton of pre punk bands that are more in line with post punk US/UK. Ramones became a blueprint for a lot of punk bands which I always find ironic as the Ramones have way more in common with the sound of the 60s garage bands than what followed with the post punk bands. I think though it's all cyclical.

Odd balls like Captain Beefheart and even Zappa can be heard in acts like XTC and Talking Heads etc.

And that doesn't even have to involve no wave, which really took things in several other directions. In terms of my heart, I prefer UK punk, but intellectually the US—first in NY, then in California and DC hardcore—is far more interesting in terms of ideas and politics.
