1981. The post-punk era was in full swing. Bands were just singing crazy crap. It was a wonderful time. Siouxsie & The Banshees were wailing their peculiarly awesome insanity. New Order was crafting a whole new existence after Joy Division. At the same time the titans of prog RUSH were at their florid technical peak, merging intricacy with melody as few could do. At the other end of the sonic spectrum the Circle Jerks were letting it all hang out in primal fashion.
