After two brilliant albums, Street Worms (2018) and Welfare Jazz (2021), these Swedes continue making space for themselves in the crowded modern punk scene. Alongside Amyl & The Sniffers and Surfbort, the Viagra Boys embody colourful, tongue-in-cheek punk. Their absurd, denunciatory lyrics are a far cry from the bleakness so common in punk - a theme which can quickly get old. The sad loss of Benjamin Vallé, co-founder and former guitarist, hasn’t seemed to hinder their creativity. In fact, Sebastian Murphy’s band has delivered their best album to date this summer. The record is seemingly split in two by the crypto-synthetic track 'Globe Earth', and both sides succeed in creating a style of rock that is affordable without sounding cheap (e.g. 'The Cognitive Trade-Off Hypothesis'). The sextet, armed with its bouncing sax, excels in building a punk sound filled with nuance and surprises around every corner. There are some country digressions on 'Big Boy', a duet with Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson, as well as some unusual post-punk keyboards ('Cave World', 'Troglodytes'), hard-hitting, trashy spoken-word ('Ain’t No Thief') and New Order-style new wave ('ADD'). Perhaps most excitingly, there’s the incredible 'Baby Criminal' which features a banging bass/drums/sax combo which gets the album started at full speed. A great release. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Ian Curtis, Industrial and Universal Poet

It’s been about forty years since the singer from Joy Division took his own life, but the shadow of his death still hangs over post-punk, new wave and rock history. In just two albums, the cult band from Manchester turned grey skies, depression and urban industrialisation into beautiful music thanks to their charismatic leader, who is just as influential today.

The Cure switch to the remix…

The Cure re-edit in a Deluxe Edition “Mixed Up”, their remix album released in 1990. A unique record that came largely from the heart of their leader Robert Smith, as this interview from the time goes to show.
