Alternative TV - Vibing Up the Senile Man (Part One) (1979)
This is a real different post-punk album, incredibly dark and dissonant, even by post-punk's standards. It has a really bleak, frozen atmosphere to it, its quite haunting in fact. If you like hearing the panicked shouts of British men though, this is definitely the album for you, the fourth track is a cold, sort of spoken word story which breaks down into chaos at the end, it's an incredible track. It's a real foreboding yet mesmerizing album, I highly recommend it to someone who's a fan of No Wave, even though it isn't from the scene, it bears a striking resemblance.
But the terror is in your radio
