Nine Inch Nails Heresy
The Downward Spiral Nothing 2015
Following the comedic styling displayed on "Halftime At the Apocalypse", here is THIS!
Your Enemies Friends The Wiretap
The Wiretap E.P. Buddyhead Records 2004
Los Angeles-based noisy art-punk band formed in 2001. Brings back memories of driving throughout Los Angeles County with my friend Miriam in her beat up BMW and catching so many emerging indie acts live. Saw someone get hit with a bottle at a live show!
Blanck Mass Rhesus Negative
World Eater Sacred Bones Records 2017
Experimental industrial project from Benjamin John Powers, one-half of the indie band Fuck Buttons. This album is his response to the populist political upheaval from 2016. Tasty tune!
Suspiria. Cinevox Record 2017
Italian prog rockers composing the title track to a classic 70s horror film by Dario Argento. What's not to love?

Rel Rex Program
B9 Bis (Belgian Cold Wave 1979-83) LTM Publishing 2007
As you gathered from the album title, Rel Rex was a Belgian Cold Wave artist, slightly chippier than its dour peers.
Devo Pity You
New Traditionalists Warner Records 1981
This LP was meant as a musical and lyrical rebuke to the success (and clueless new fans) brought on by the hit single "Whip It". "Opening cut "Through Being Cool" is Devo laying all that aside.
The Raincoats Fairytale In the Supermarket
The Raincoats We ThRee 2009
About this song, from Ana da Silva: “There is a scene in Who Is Poly Styrene, set among the grocery store aisles, where Poly is pushing a shopping cart beneath fluorescent lights, grabbing up products… it is the industrial Wasteland of late capitalism. ‘I remember distinctly thinking that her music sounded a bit like fairytales, but in a consumerist society. Suddenly it came to me. This is like a fairytale in the supermarket.’”
Sonic Youth Beauty Lies in the Eye
Sister Squeaky Squawk 1987
Fourth studio LP from Sonic Youth. This tune features four guitar tracks overlaid. Written by Kim Gordon.
Wipers No Fair

Second studio LP from Greg Sage and company. Despite the band's sound, Greg Sage did not consider Wipers to be a punk rock.
Saccharine Trust I Have...
Paganicons SST Records 1981
Debut EP from this Los Angeles punk band. Influenced by the experimentation of the Minutemen and wanted to build on that sound.
Public Image Ltd. Poptones
Second Edition Rhino/Warner Records 1979
Post-punk band formed by John Lydon fka Johnny Rotten following disbandment of the Sex Pistols. The lyrics for this song are based on an abduction, with the surviving victim stating the abductors kept playing the same random pop tune over and over in the car while she was in the trunk (!).
Neu! 75 Grönland Records 2001
Third studio LP released in - you guessed it - 1975 by former Kraftwerk members Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother. This album influenced much of the music created by John Lydon with PiL.
Liars The Start
The Apple Drop Mute 2021
10th studio LP from this experimental arty post-punk band originally formed in NYC. Only original founding member and singer Angus Andrew remains. For this release, he returned to his native Australia and spent time in the outback, resulting in this atmospheric, experimental release.
Electric Wizard Venus In Furs
Black Masses Rise Above Records 2010
Gotta love this English doom metal with hints of sludge and stoner rock.
Crime and the City Solution No Money No Honey
Room of Lights Mute 1986
No, that's not Nick Cave on vocals but rather Simon Bonney. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Crime & the City Solution were both featured on Wim Wender's beautiful 1987 film Wings of Desire.
