The thing about post-punk is that it's ambiguous enough to cover a lot of different sounds so stuff like Joy Division, Suicide (technically proto punk but still the dope dope), This Heat, and ****ing U2. As far as I've found, Metabolist is the only band that I've found that's very similar in sound to This Heat but still their own band.

A few of my faves:
Public Image Limited - First Issue
The Pop Group - Y
Pete Ubu - Dub Housing
Teenage Jesus & the Jerks - Everything
The Beatloads - s/t
Swans - Filth
No New York Comp
Glen Branca - The Ascension

Also The Fall if you're more into noise rock. Like I said, it's really a large net, but these are probably the best out of the harder bands.
Dude. Stop calling The Fall noise rock.
