With Darrell Buxton.

Uncanny tales can take unusual forms, as evidenced within the crop of exciting music releases in the years following the punk explosion. New acts seeking to expand on the 1977 template often veered towards spooky inspirations and influences.

In 'Post-Punk Phantoms', author and lecturer Darrell Buxton will lead you through the creepy cacophony, examining the eerie lyrics and nerve-shattering sounds offered by performers within this under-discussed area of phantasmagoric fiction. Dare to revisit the primal voodoo of Siouxsie Sioux, the sepulchral utterances of Bauhaus, the weird wordscapes conjured by Mark E Smith, and more.
