Titel: Rip it up and start again
Sub titel: Post Punk 1978-1984
Punk's raw power rejuvenated rock, but by the summer of 1977 the movement had become a parody of itself. `Rip it up and start again' is a celebration of what happened next: post-punk bands like PiL, Joy Division, Talking Heads, The Fall and The Human League who dedicated themselves to fulfilling punk's unfinished musical revolution. The post-punk groups were fervent modernists. Experimenting with electronics and machine rhythm or adapting ideas from dub reggae and disco, they were totally confident they could invent a whole new future for music.
