The Associates - Sulk
This underappreciated post-punk outfit from Scotland really brings something to the table. Led by Billy Mackenzie's piercing falsetto, funk-filled bass lines and catchy dream-like disco synths. They encompass all that was happening in the vibrant UK scene of the time.
Although it is just a rumor, it is believed that Billy is THE William, in the Smith's famed "William it was really nothing."
