punk and post-punk, but i was too young really

A Listmania! list by dan "dropandroll" (brighton, uk)
 
Cut
1.  Cut by Slits
The list author says:
  "dismissed as amateurish, or as arriving too late (Sep '79)to document their early and best work, the slits' debut LP still impresses with its unhinged rhythms and wayward vocal stylings."
£6.88   Used & New from: £4.03
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Chairs Missing
2.  Chairs Missing by Wire
The list author says:
  "wire's 'pink flag' is rightfully regarded as a punk classic, but I would fly the standard for this, their moodier and more nuanced follow-up."
£21.95   Used & New from: £6.89
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

London Calling
3.  London Calling by The Clash
The list author says:
  "again, their first LP is regarded as an essential punk artefact, but the eclecticism of 'london calling' marked both their finest moment and the beginning of their demise."
£6.99   Used & New from: £2.58
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (105 customer reviews)

Rattus Norvegicus
4.  Rattus Norvegicus by Stranglers
The list author says:
  "the first vinyl LP I ever bought, and I still listen to it (occasionally)."
£7.99   Used & New from: £4.86
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Metal Box
5.  Metal Box by Public Image Limited
The list author says:
  "shows the pistols up for the re-hash of old glam and blues-rock that they really were. a beautifully sprawling double LP of dubby bass, scratchy post-punk guitar, and Lydon's other-worldly howling."
Used & New from: £22.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Germfree Adolescents
6.  Germfree Adolescents by X-Ray Spex
The list author says:
  "the politics of the clash, gang of four, pop group are still discussed, while poly styrene's remarkably prescient diatribes against consumer culture are rarely remarked upon. the tunes are great too!"
£22.95   Used & New from: £7.50
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

The Raincoats - Raincoats, The CD
7.  The Raincoats - Raincoats, The CD by The Raincoats
The list author says:
  "punk, it's said, was already over by '77. but it was often the female groups, not least the raincoats, who seemed to find new avenues for investigation at the end of the 70s and into the 80s."
£29.99   Used & New from: £19.99
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Damned Damned Damned
8.  Damned Damned Damned by Damned
The list author says:
  "an enjoyably rowdy romp through a pacey set. recognised as the first UK punk LP to be released (Feb '77). don't be put off if you've only heard their 80s 'gothic' stuff."
Used & New from: £21.02
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Mix Up
9.  Mix Up by Cabaret Voltaire
The list author says:
  "I spent much of my adolescence sitting in a darkened room with this classic debut of industrial cut-and-paste on the stereo."
£7.02
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Y
10.  Y by The Pop Group
The list author says:
  "an absolute crime that this masterpiece of punk-funk global-conspiracy-theory is out of print. pay those extortionate dealership prices without compunction to get your used copy!"
£86.25   Used & New from: £5.00
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)
