Now let's talk about a Post-Punk group who's members went on to play Punk/Hardcore music. The opposite of what's going on in the previous Beautiful Skin post.

Jacket Weather were formed in the early 80's and played "pioneering minimalist-electro-wave", "described in their day as a cross between Joy Division and Young Marble Giants, with some Wall Of Voodoo mixed in". Jacket Weather became Reptile House, a mid 80's hardcore punk group that still sound fresh and nowhere near all the other short, fast and loud clones of that era. After Reptile House the frontman went on to Lungfish and the drummer worked with Samhain. Both Jacket Weather and Reptile House's most popular releases are their 7" EPs so those are what I've uploaded for this blog.
