Here's what kept my feet steady in May:
This is bookended with Metronomy songs; leading with one of their last big hits (I'm Aquarius" and closing with their first ("you could easily have me"). The video for Aquarius is a silly bit of superglam sci-fi fluff; you could easily have me is a manic memeish animal-headed chase scene at least partly set in Oxford, and dates from when they were a local band who performed with cupboard lights on their chests. I was a fan, of course.
Heaven 17 and Jessica 6 provide robotish glamour with that faintly disturbing quasi-fascist edge some high 80s style had. I found a nice performance of Mess Around with an old Ray Charles whooping is up grand style, though the version I favourited was just the one from the calpol ad. McDull (the weird Japanese interlude) was a cult children's animation of some note; I got a CD of it in a pile of library chuck-outs. The songs are weirdly hypnotic. Boys Noize and Negativland bring the politics this time - be sure to watch the videos of Yellow, Black and Rectangular for classic nucleur paranoia and Mayday for surveillance state panic.
