A few months back I re-read Simon Reynolds excellent book about the Post
Punk years Rip it up and start again. All inspired, I decided that I was
long over due in putting together a massive 2 hr Post Punk Mix. This
mix is in no particular order. Some of you might point out that a few of
the bands here are not really Post Punk....true maybe, in fact some of
the bands here are def pre-punk, but there impact and presence was
probably felt more musically in the post punk years. To wet your whistle
we have music from Throbbing Gristle, Pere Ubu, Josef K, Metal Urbain,
Young Marble Giants, Wall of Voodoo, Monochrome Set, PIL, Pop Group,
Magazine, James Chance, The Raincoats, Wire and much much more. Anyway thats
it for me mix wise this year. Time for a break. Its all been very busy
what with the new album out this month and all other things, so until
the next one thank you all for listening this year see you in 2016.
The CD version of A Rest Before the Walk has now SOLD OUT on Bandcamp. A Digital Version of the album can still be purchased from Bandcamp. If the mood takes you go digital. CDs are still available from The Ghost Box Guests Shop for the time being. Thank you to everyone who have bought a copy of A Rest Before the Walk.
The new Keith Seatman album is finally here, and CD copies are available to purchase from The Ghost Box Records Guests Shop CD and Digital will also be available from Bandcamp on Monday 19th October. There is for the time being only a limited number of CD copies from Ghost Box Guests shop so you might have to be swift. The Album has so far been played a few times on 6 Music and has been reviewed by The Sunday Experience and interview in Wyrd Daze issue 4. There is also a very nice review in Shindig issue 51 which is due out very soon. It’s far from easy listening, but it washes over you like a fever dream and captivates the senses. Jon Mojo Mills Shindig Oct 2015 Issue 51. Those of you fancying some creeping dread psychosis purred disturbia in readiness to celebrate the season of death / rebirth will probably have to dig deep to find anything as out there, strange and eerie as Keith Seatman’s sinisterly shadow smothered ‘a rest before the walk’.
