8/10 Andy 23rd January 2015
The Shop Assistants represented all that was right and good with Scottish rock during the mid-'80s; their music brilliantly fused the gap between the three-chord noise of the Jesus & Mary Chain and the shambling naïveté of bands like the Pastels, generating infectious, sweet-and-sour pop completely lacking in pretence and polish. Will Anything Happen is a superb retrospective combining the group's self-titled 1986 debut LP with tracks from their earlier EPs, and although a little of The Shop Assistants' primitive charms can go a long way, the spirit and sheer exuberance of their music is never less than infectious. An essential artefact of its times.
