Can’t Stop It!

Can't Stop It!Chapter’s Can’t Stop It! is one of the first compilation series to examine Australia’s post-60s musical legacy. The late 70s/early 80s post-punk era is perhaps the first time that Australian musicians felt confident enough to ignore overseas trends and create their own musical identities. Most of the Can’t Stop It! bands, however, had been practically forgotten by Australian audiences by the time the original compilation was released, and for overseas audiences the very fact that we had our own thriving post-punk scene was almost a complete surprise.
