Thirty Days of C-86 # 15 Shop Assistants

A characteristic of the C-86 bands was that they weren't reaching for the stars. Most of them were not built to last, with only Primal Scream and The Wedding Present really forging lasting careers and breaking out to a larger audience. Shop Assistants, (the utter bland disposability of the name being the whole point) were actually one of the more important bands of the scene and their single Safety Net, an emblematic moment to represent its ethic. Still sounds great!
