Did you know it's National One Hit Wonder Day? Of course not, what kind of crazy person just walks around with information like that? But technically, it really is such a day and I thought I would celebrate by doing a show dedicated to the one hit wonders of post punk.
While maybe to the uninitiated, groups like Soft Cell, Big Country, Wall of Voodoo, Gary Numan, and even Devo could be considered one-hit wonders but of course, if you listen to the podcast or just any of those bands, you probably know otherwise. This episode focused on the true one-hit wonders within our genre. People who really only gave us one signature track by which to remember them by. Whether it be a technical hit or just well-known classic amongst us fans. Of course this all certainly falls into subjective territory too but hopefully, you can trust my judgment here. If not though, you’ll probably still like the music.

One Hit Wonders of Post Punk

He's best known as the producer who helped resurrect the Human League for the landmark Dare album but Martin Rushent is also the man behind The Stranglers, Buzzcocks, Altered Images, and other post punk groups looking for a big, more accessible record, all without compromising their artistic integrity.
Martin is easily one of the Top 3 most important producers in our genre and tonight my show was dedicated entirely to his work. Click on the link below to dedicate your ears entirely to my show dedicated entirely to his work:
