Inspired by punk's energy and DIY ethic but determined to break from rock cliches, artists experimented diversely with sources including electronic music and black styles like dub, funk, free jazz, and disco; novel recording and production techniques; and ideas from art and politics, including critical theory, modernist art, cinema and literature.
Post-punk bands are literary as fuck. The Fall was named after an Albert Camus book, Joy Division is a reference to House of Dolls, Pere Ubu is named after a character in a play.
