Aim for politicians fair who'll treat your vote hope well

The theme for @lpgrp’s September session is ‘Post-Punk’.

The listening session will be 9pm, Sunday 8th September. With so many @lpgrp regulars at End of the Road Festival the week before, we're straying from the traditional first Sunday in the month.

First, we need to create a shortlist. Please send me the names of two post-punk albums you’d like to nominate. Use a direct message or a tweet mentioning 'lpgrp' to contact me. Your deadline is noon, Monday 12th August. Once the shortlist is ready, I’ll publish details about how to vote.

Here are lots of post-punk lists from the Rate Your Music site in case you want your memory jogging.

Look forward to hearing from you!
