    yes. I'd also suggest
    Big Black
    McLusky
    Shotmaker
    Serena-Maneesh
    Black Flag (yes, they count as indie, their label was almost like a church of indie and DIY ethics)
    Do you mean "indie" as in not signed to a major label, or "indie" by its most recent categorization? If it's the latter, I suggest The Noisettes (who now have a major label deal). They are riveting both live and in audio.

    slint is just cool with everyone now cause of all the recent hype lately. 2 years ago seriously half as many people liked them, probably less
