Chapter 3: The lost decade: Post-punk experimental and industrial electronic music

Ian Andrews, in consultation with John Blades

Andrews and Blades explore the rich territory of post-punk, No Wave  and Industrial scenes of late 70s and early 80s. Discussion includes the ‘autonomous cottage industry’ of cassette labels such as Terse Tapes and M Square, the little bands and Anti-Music collectives, Clifton Hill Community Music Centre, Tch Tch Tch, Severed Heads and SPK and the role of cut-up and alternate radio programs on the experimental scenes.

The following are flyers and promotional material generously supplied by John Blades from his archive.
