Ooh, ooh! Can I play?

Based on what I remember buying, listening to, going to see during that era, fave bands would have to be:

The Only Ones - Perrett = God
The Teardrop Explodes - Always loved Julian's melodies and quirky 'Englishness'
Wire - 1st 3 albums are immense
The Mekons - Adored the first album and singles
Eyeless In Gaza - Thought these two guys were going to change the face of popular music
Bauhaus - Made me ralise that it wasn't a sin to put on a show to entertain your audience (or piss off someone else's!)
Magazine - Hearing 'Shot By Both Sides' for the first time remains one of the defining moments of my life
Killing Joke - Absolutely frightening to witness them live
Pere Ubu - Awesome collection of songs. Unfortunately didn't get to see them live until 'Cloudland' but was never without 'Datapanik...' near the front of my vinyl

Didn't get The Fall until 'Perverted...', tho' the singles were always listenable. Totally unaware of Mission Of Burma until 2004 when Sev & StensilHead sent me some stuff, Sisters of Mercy were ok, Mission were crap, Joy Division were Joy Division, early Bunnymen singles were good, ...

There were loads of bands that I dipped in and out of, buying the odd single or two...
Manicured Noise, Au Pairs, The Flys, Carpettes,
Scars (look out for their version of Steve Harley's 'Psychomodo'), Wah! Heat, Pink Military, Kleenex, PiL, Modern English, Passions,Monochrome Set, Scientists, I'm So Hollow, ...

Had a secret crush on Hestor out of Dolly Mixtures; when we saw them live, everyone was buzzing hoping 'The Captain' would be in attendance... I just stood moon-faced, staring at Hestor all night.

there's another one here, too. I love them. And The Light Pours Out of Me is undoubtedly one of my fave ever tracks.

I fucking love Magazine...how can you not. They could've been on my list. About 100 bands could've been on my list, really.

It's just swell, honey. I'm proud of you

Oops, forgot about ol Sudden and the boys. swell maps are impeccable. Also, The Fall...way more than deserving of the list than Devo. I was stoned, y'know? Gangh of Four, though=overrated and bad suits. If they woulda broken up after 2 years I'd adore them, but the sight of them on Rockpalast in light gray 'Robert Palmer' suits with a legion of bad girl back-up players with cowbells and shit is perma-burned in my brain.

Rose Garden Funeral of Sores

'Rose Garden' was a cover of a John Cale piece. Thought you might wanna check out the original, which is different but still cool.

Hmm... Admittedly their third and last LP is pretty bad, but I think that could have been down to record company pressure. I'm going to see them play at the Shepherds Bush Empire in a few weeks.
