The Shrubs- Another Age
British band that existed for four years during the heyday of indie rock from 1985-89. The title track is a Phil Ochs cover and half the record is culled from live performances. Their music leaned heavily on post-punk, with singer Nick Hobbs talk-singing over disjointed, angular guitar lines. If you're familiar with old SST recording artists Saccharine Trust/Slovenly you'll find distinct similarities.
Buy this record if you wanna ditch the Honda Accord for a Karmann Ghia.
