This article will explore the gender politics of post-punk in Leeds in the early ‘80s. It links the brutalist architecture of the university (now listed buildings), with the rigorous sound of Gang of Four and Delta 5, and how that reflected the austere mood of the late ‘70s/early ‘80s. It will also look at how radical feminism flourished in a post-industrial city affected by the National Front, the Yorkshire Ripper and an aggressive male culture, and how it found a soundtrack in female post-punk bands like Delta 5 and the Au Pairs.
