I'm obsessed with going through as many post-punk/art pop/new wave etc etc bands as possible and there's a lot I need to hear. This thread is great in reminding me which ones I do btw. Art Of Noise is one I kind of looked up before but don't remember hearing anything besides this song you posted.
I probably should check out that book. Sounds up my alley and possibly helpful hearing more from this era.
Out of it all, the one that stands out so far is that Lemon Kittens album (mostly because I never heard of the existance of that "Hammer" album). Sounds like The Young Marble Giants trying to cover Cardiac songs so far.
