Weird Songs of Post Punk - 10/9/14
Did you know it's also National Weird Song Day? Well, it actually isn't but I believe it is Independence Day for the nation of Uganda and that's pretty much the same thing. Therefore, I have decided to celebrate by playing what I consider to be some of the weirder tracks of post punk.
But not necessarily weird as in weird-in-general, more like weird as it relates to each band. Things like the Police suddenly breaking from song to read a poem about a blow-up sex doll, Gary Numan performing a jingle for 7-Up, Morrissey sounding downright happy, the Thompson Twins sounding downright punky, and Xymox hopelessly adrift a sea of early 90s ecstasy.
If you're feel like getting weird or are just really fired up about Ugandan independence, click on the link below to hear what I'm talking about:
