Scottish Indie legends The Shop Assistants were one of the defining bands of the '80s independent boom. Formed in Edinburgh in 1984, originally as Buba & the Shop Assistants, they released the Peel-approved indie staple 'Something to Do', which featured Stephen Pastel on backing vocals. With line-up changes and an abbreviated name, they released the Shopping Parade EP a year later, which saw Morrissey describe 'All Day Long' as his favorite track of the year. The band's David Keegan (who would subsequently join the Pastels) then formed 53rd & 3rd Records. This re-release incorporates the material they released after signing to Chrysalis's Blue Guitar subsidiary. The Shop Assistants (AKA Will Anything Happen), is their sole album release, and is accompanied here by two bonus tracks; 'Looking Back' and the 'slow version' of 'All Day Long'. Cherry Red.
