The last months the use of the term post-punk is such a common (ha!) term that everybody uses it that you tend to think if any of these people still know what post-punk stands for.
So this band from Sacramento say they're the creators of post-punk too and they're right. I tell you why...
Post-punk has to sound unpolished.
The Common Men are.
Post-punk has to sound punk, hence the name.
The Common Men do.
Every post-punk band should sound a bit like The Fall otherwise it's no post-punk.
The Common Men sound Fallesque.
Every post-punk band should play with bands that matter.
The Common Men already played with Veil Veil Vanish.
Every post-punk band should sound as raw as early Wire.
The Common Men sound as raw as they did on "154".
Perfect band? Nah you won't believe me, but I like 'em...
