Post-punk (originally "new musick") is a broad type of rock music that emerged from the punk movement of the 1970s, in which artists departed from the traditional garage rock template of punk to pursue a variety of radical sensibilities. Attempting to break from rock cliché and subvert conventions, post-punk artists experimented with sources such as electronic music, black dance styles, and the avant-garde, as well as novel recording technology and production techniques.
Artists also crossed their work with with art and politics, drawing widely on ideas from critical theory, modernist art, and literature. Communities that produced independent record labels, visual art, multimedia performances and fanzines developed in conjunction with these musical developments.
The early post-punk vanguard was represented by groups such as Siouxsie and the Banshees, Wire, Magazine, Gang of Four, Public Image Ltd, the Pop Group, Joy Division, Throbbing Gristle, the Slits, Cabaret Voltaire, the Cure, the Fall, Au Pairs, Talking Heads and Pere Ubu.
