The '1981' box set - Part 3 of 9

Mixed back in 2003, a one-off mix became three, then five, and eventually nine themed CD mixes (plus a catch-all mp3 disc) that in total featured hundreds of musicians from the incredibly wide world of post-punk, all from 1981. The set was initially issued as hand-made box sets with printed discs and booklets, mailed (for the cost of materials and shipping) around the world. Now ten years on from the start of the project, '1981' seems about ready to hopefully be discovered by yet another generation of ears for whom this now-30-year-old music will sound timeless.

'Car' is maybe the most accessible mix in the set, the most pop end of the post-punk spectrum, or the artiest end of the pop spectrum.
