A guide to Dark Alternative Music by 100s of Artists from Australia & New Zealand (ANZ)

With links to 1000s of Songs in Post-Punk music genres such as Industrial, Gothic, DarkWave, EBM, Electro/Synth/Cyber-Punk/Goth/Rock/Pop, New-Wave, Dark Cabaret, Indie Rock & Electronica ... *

ANZ bands were at the forefront of defining these genres* in the 70s & 80s. Some have become the most enduring & prolific artists, producing continuously through to the present time. Some artists have become international icons. Some bands transitioned in order to achieve commercial success & thereby survive (which means many are not aware of their earlier experimental music). Many other projects are independent, DIY & underground.
