Indie in the ’80s wasn’t the monolith it’s being sold as now, it was more than just The Smiths and The Cure. There were millions of weird little bands like this, popping up with great pop songs.

Looks retro now but I remember seeing it and lusting after the tech in the vid: Apple ][e (6502 processor!) with a Greengate DS3 sampler. AND THOSE HI-TECH GRAPHICS!

Ahh, the Channel 4 Chart Show Indie chart, back when Channel 4 weren’t idiots and indie music was actually on independent labels. 😛
