Dum Dum Dum

If we've got proto punk (The Stooges) and punk (Sex Pistols) we must have post-punk, so here is the almost ungoogleable Dum Dum Dum by Dum Dum Dum. I can find next to nothing about them- the track was on a compilation called Obey The New Wave but the existance of Dum Dum Girls, a Bollywood film of the same triple Dum name and someone called Dum Dum Dugan makes it difficult to find anymore info. I'm not even sure if the picture shows a member of Dum Dum Dum- it came up on an image search with this song's name and the Obey The New Wave compilation album. It doesn't matter; this is archetypal and utterly great post-punk. Scratchy and hissy, dub bass, guitars like wires being stretched to breaking point and monotone vocals. It's abrasive, tense and cold. Recommended.
