    Shop Assistants are a great example of the chaotic noisy indie-pop music in the UK in the 80s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU9fZkXHqns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOEEHgLjDMk

    Other examples are We've Got a Fuzzbox and We're Going To Use It[1], Pastels[2], Talulah Gosh[3], and I'd say Jesus and Mary Chain[4]

    I'm probably going to post quite a lot of 1980s UK indie-pop to this thread in the next few weeks.

      This is full of distortion and feedback. It has Christine Grant singing with members of Golden Dawn.

      Band members Robert Smith and Kenny Forte went on to form Christine's Cat (who released a 5" flexi-disc, "Your Love Is", on Sarah Records), while Smith later resurfaced as The Besotted (who released a single, "Kaleidoscope" on the Blam-A-Bit label) and as a member of Meth O.D.who released several singles and albums throughout the 1990s.

        You have to search for things like "Golden Dawn Sarah records" to avoid all the neo-Nazi bands that are also called Golden Dawn.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Dawn_(Scottish_band)

        The Golden Dawn were an indie pop/indie rock band from Glasgow, Scotland formed in 1986, who were signed to Sarah Records on the strength of a 9-track demo.[1] They had two hits on the UK Indie Chart in 1988 and 1989, with what have been described as "awesomely ragged, feedback-riddled singles".[2][3] The band were dropped by Sarah Records, when the tracks the band put forward for a third single for the label were rejected.[1]
