Attempting to break from rock cliché and subvert conventions, post-punk artists experimented with sources such as electronic musicblack 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 BansheesWireMagazineGang of Four, Public Image Ltd, the Pop Group, Joy DivisionThrobbing Gristle, the SlitsCabaret Voltaire, the Cure, the FallAu PairsTalking Heads and Pere Ubu.
