This is the very first in a new series of shows we're doing of unhampered songs although with just a tinge of a theme.
This week it was Darkwave and Post-Punk, my two favourite music genres that are really my true roots and what I always seem drawn to and come back to at the end of the day.
NOTE: A couple of these links for some older bands are very dated as I couldn't find anything more up-to-date. Sorry and don't hold it against them, it was par for the course at that time.
