Shop Assistants - Subway Records EP. 1985.

Insert - Front.
Insert - Rear.
Shop Assistants were a band from Scotland who wanted to be The Ramones. And The Shangri-Las. This was their first release. Like all bands who start cheap, their early recordings (and there weren't actually that many in the end) eclipse the later ones through guile, tenacity and the kind of amateurism that gets me out of bed every morning. Plenty of crackles on the quieter track.
