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

Dude. Stop calling The Fall noise rock.
Some people lump the entire new wave genre in with post-punk, which may actually be accurate to some extent given new wave's emergence from the punk scene in the late 70s. I always thought of new wave as being more accessible, but the more I think about, the more I realize that they're essentially the same genre.
