L’APPEL DU VIDE BY ACTORS

Our editor was reading something the other day which suggested the term post-punk was more than redundant now. Here are Actors, the Vancouver band parking their tanks on the post post-punk lawn.

While we all know what folk mean by ‘post-punk’ it does seem a little dated. However, the familiar signs of what we mean when we use it are all present here. Gang Of Four and Wire are two immediate signposts.
Originally on a 7″ back in autumn, L’Appel Du Vide (‘the call of the void’, a term used to refer to intrusive thoughts or self-destructive behaviour) now takes pride of place in kicking off the new album It Will Come To You.

Get It Will Come To You here.
