Night Music 2: Chin-Chin, “Stay With Me”

I like this one even better.

I’m trying to put this in context. This music sounds like contemporary bands like the Dum Dum Girls, who mine the same influences (girl groups, punk rock, jangly guitar harmonies) only 30 years later. Were there other bands in the mid-80s and before who sounded like this?

The standard line seems to be the English C86 sound made similar noises, but it’s far from direct. I’m making no claim for Chin-Chin’s originality, but they sound so much like they could be playing today, it confuses me. Which end is up?
