ANZ bands were at the forefront of defining these genres* in the 70s & 80s. Some have become the most enduring & prolific artists; producing continuously through to the present time. This site presents a guide to hundreds of projects: some artists have become international icons of their genre; some bands transitioned in order to achieve commercial chart success & thereby survive (which meant many people are not aware of their earlier, darker, more experimental music); and many other groups stick to the Punk ethos of remaining independent, DIY & underground.
This Youtube playlist features 150+ songs by dozens of artists, past & present, spanning these various genres; barely scratching the surface! You'll find thousands more songs in the playlists on the respective Artist Profile pages. The tracks were selected by DJ Robot Citizen in January 2015. To view & move about the full list click on the word 'playlist' at the top left of the video screen.
