Today’s episode focused on many of the groups that started the Alternative music genre in the late 1970s: Gang of Four, Wire, Television, Talking Heads, Buzzcocks, and Elvis Costello & The Attractions. These groups would be major influences on the next 30 years of the genre and many other sub-genres of Alternative music such as New Wave and Grunge. None of these bands ever reach the height of fame as the bands they have influenced, but they deserve a lot of credit for the Alternative movements that happened after their time.
