The Shop Assistants were an indie pop band from Edinburgh, Scotland, formed in 1984, initially as Buba & The Shop Assistants. The original line-up was Aggi on vocals, David Keegan (guitar), Sarah Kneale (bass), Laura MacPhail (drums) and Ann Donald (drums), this line-up releasing one single, the highly-collectable 'Something To Do' which was produced by Stephen Pastel who also contributed backing vocals. Aggi left to be replaced by Alex Taylor, which saw the name shortened to simply 'The Shop Assistants' and the next release was 'All Day Long' in 1985, which Morrissey described as his favourite single of that year. This was followed in early 1986 with 'Safety Net', the first release on Keegan's 53rd & 3rd Records, which topped the indie chart, and the band recorded national radio sessions for John Peel and Janice Long of BBC Radio One.
