Live! Punk into post-punk new year's eve

Inclination and drink consumption allowing, going to write up the punk into post-punk songs that get played tonight. Also the film for tonight is of course 200 Cigarettes

As I type, Marquee Moon by Television plays as by genuine coincidence there is the most wonderful hazy cloud covered moon.

1. Plastic Bertrand - Ca Plane Pour Moi
2. Blondie - 11:59
3. BUzzcocks - Fiction romance
4. X-Ray Spex - cigarettes
5. Wire - Outdoor Miner
6. Television - marquee moon
7. The Fall - rowche rumble
8. Ramones - blitzkrieg bop
10. Clash - Charlie don't surf (live in Amsterdam)
11. Sex pistols - anarchy in the UK
12. UK Subs - stranglehold
13. Members - sound of the suburbs
14. Dead Kennedys - kill the poor
15. The Cure - three imaginary boys
16. Only Ones - another girl, another planet
17. Siouxsee and the bashers [I like that typo and I'm keeping it in!) - Hong Kong garden
18. Stiff little fingers - alternative Ulster
19. No Dice - bad man
20. PIL - this is not a love song
21. Squeeze - cool for cats
22. Teardrop explodes - reward
23. Blondie - hanging in the telephone
24. XTC - making plans for Nigel
25. XTC - sergeant rock
26. Sham 69 - Hersham boys
Followed by fireworks and Buggles and Propaganda and Human League and Bow Wow Wow and Pet Shop Boys
A stack of tonnes of ace post punk stuff remains unplayed - bah! Edit: On New Year's Day, made up for lack of post-punk records with a slew of Chameleons songs. Had stuff by Siglo XX, Josef K, Sad Lovers and Giants etc etc lined up to play but fun 80s pop won in the end. The soundtrack to 200 Cigarettes is also really new wave and ace.
