In the spirit of giving thanks this holiday season, I thank food for being so edible. And I thank music for helping motivate me to exercise. You'd think that the fear of obesity and all the subsequent health problems that can come from obesity would be all the motivation I need but it's not. Music is the only thing that makes exercise worthwhile. And this episode of Post Punk For Post Punks is dedicated specifically to the music most worthwhile to make exercise worthwhile.
Happy Thanksgiving and if you want to download the show by clicking on the link below, happy downloading. If not, well then to hell with ya.

Oh yeah and I mentioned during the show that an old episode of mine works pretty well for this purpose as well. If you're interested or just don't believe me, check this one out too:
Old Show Dedicated to the Story of Punk

It seemed appropriate on this day to honor the dead, in Mexico at least, I feature the works of one of post punk's greatest, most genre-defining, influential, imaginative, inventive, probably-some-more-words-that-start-with-I, guitar players. In less than 10 years' time, John McGeoch was a major part of Magazine (which he co-founded with Howard Devoto), Visage, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Armoury Show, Public Image Ltd. and even contributed to Skids, Generation X, and a solo album from Ken Lockie. He is the ultimate post punk....I don't actually know what to call him, really. Because there's just no one else like him.
So in deep appreciation of his many accomplishments, I present this show as an offering to you and his memory:
