I’m thrilled that you found me and one of my music stories in the Medium realm, Laura Johnson!
I have written A LOT about 80’s alternative — from earliest new wave to Madchester to the 4 pillars (DM, NO, the Cure, the Smiths) to industrial.
I thought you might like this particular story, but please don’t feel obligated to read it. (If you find yourself bored, you can go into the music tab of Bonnie’s Mixed Tape and search for various bands. Chances are I’ve included them!)
Do you have any other bands that you really like? I’ll incorporate them into a future mixtape and tag you when I publish.
