Punk, Post-Punk & New Wave 1979 Playlist #1


A fine mix of tunes issued between January - March 1979 that includes Debut Singles from Monochrome Set, The Ruts and The Scars from Edinburgh; major label Debuts from The Members and The Skids; as well as tunes from the usual suspects like The Clash, Ramones, X-Ray Spex, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Generation X, The Undertones, The Jam, Sham 69 and Buzzcocks. There's Peel Session performances from Gang of Four, Tubeway Army and Adam and the Ants. It all kicks off with the return of The Damned who would go on to sign with Chiswick Records and release some excellent singles and a magnificent third album in 1979.
