No Aid - Charlie Wutz / TV 06131/701 (1980)

Rejoice freaks, here's a truly Dada inspired minimal / no wave trip of the Neue Deutsche Welle perspective. Complete with the headache guitar tone, thumpy bass, hiccup vocalizing, and some surprisingly friendly synth sounds.

The Wise Men - Knowledge / Lost in Action (1983)

A straight up classic of the English postpunk scene, produced by John McGeoch of Magazine, and Siouxsie fame. The A-side is as gritty and dark, as it is full of great melodies. The B-side is a moody almost psychedelic ballade.

The Nice Men - Senile Youth / I Am Wood (1981)

Super catchy English postpunk, "I Am Wood" is an especially awesome song, it's like the best thing The Monochrome Set never wrote. I included their first single from no longer forgotten music as the link is dead. Be sure to check out The Nice Men on Facebook!

Pope Paul Pot - Adventures in Plastic T.V. Land (1981)

Utterly deranged Residents style experiments from San Francisco. Mr. Paul Pot is still at it today with the Happy Clams. More info on this E.P. here. "Plastic T.V. Land on Acid" may make you lament mother's day, but "This is Your Leader" is prolly my favorite of the bunch, making Snakefinger sound pop in comparison.

The Scenekillers - Sheila's Boom Box / A Scarey Love (1985)

A one off side project from Neil Socol, bassist of  Milwaukee, Wisconsin's funny punks Couch Flambeau. With the Appliances-SFB drummer Meredith Young, and a certain Chip Johns on board. You get a disturbing noise-dirge in "A Scarey Love", and jazz ridden postpunk in "Sheila's Boom Box".

Conversion - Interference / Collector (1980)

First class herky-jerky art-wave postpunk from New Jersey. Fans of avant-prog / RIO might appreciate this as well. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Clive Smith also had a major role in writing the music for the desperately weird new wave film Liquid Sky!

The Moderates - Fetishes (1980)

Super fun English postpunk jangly pop. Sounds like The Monochrome Set colliding with The Petticoats in an all night shake down. The Moderates also had a track on the great Street to Street - A Liverpool Album compilation, did a John Peel session, and put out a couple singles after this EP.
