it suits C86 to have a wallchart of the bands mapped out in some sort of academic exercise.

The plethora of bands that were loosely based around the post post punk scene have been gathered up into this wall chart and whilst it concentrates on the lighter and janglier end of the action and has none of the noisier bands it’s an interesting trawl through the daze of indie past.

This is an ongoing project to map eighties indie music and whilst it is still full of holes and plenty of missing bands it is still a fascinating wander through the archives of DIY.
