Gift idea: Post-punk stamps
The people behind the British post office seem to be most amenable to celebrating musical history. Here, for example, is a sheet of stamps commemorating classic album covers from the post-punk area. Everyone from Television (1977) to Public Image Ltd (1979) to The Cure (1982) and Depeche Mode (1990) are included, but so are lesser names like The Raincoats (a favourite band of Kurt Cobain), Pylon (the less-successful contemporaries of REM in Athens, Georgia) and Throbbing Gristle (a pioneering industrial band) also get their own stamps.
Throbbing Gristle as legal postage? Seriously cool. Buy your stamps here. Philatelists rejoice!
