Shop Assistants formed in Edinburgh in 1984 and quickly gained a cult following, playing with kindred spirits the Pastels and the Jesus and Mary Chain and gaining positive coverage in fanzines and the music press. Their Shopping Parade EP and Safety Net single both hit the top of the indie charts and charmed listeners with their unique melodic blend of punk rock and 60s pop.

The band signed to Geoff Travis’ new Chrysalis Records imprint, Blue Guitar, in 1986 for the release of their debut album Will Anything Happen. The album has since become a cult classic and is an essential listen for fans of indie, dream- pop, and shoe gaze. Stand-out songs include the lead single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Friends With You’, ‘All Day Long’, and ‘Somewhere In China’.

Out of print for over a decade, vinyl copies now fetch impressive prices amongst collectors. This new reissue features the album newly remastered from the original tapes by Phil Kinrade and cut by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering. Pressed on 140g clear vinyl, housed in a sleeve with spot-UV detailing and a printed inner sleeve with lyrics and photos.
