The Shop Assistants. An appreciation and unfortunately an RIP thread.

Anyone a fan? Loved their only album since I first heard it maybe 10-12 years ago.

I didn’t really Google them despite liking the album.

Just realised this morning when looking them up that Alex Taylor died in 2005 but it wasn’t known about until a few months ago.

Their album’s definitely worth a listen.


another in the endless list of artists I’ve picked up from DiS

Yeah I heard about this. One of those weird things where you only know them for something they did a long time ago and then they had a whole other totally normal life.

I heard them first via this compilation, which like all of the various RT ones put around this time is absolutely excellent
