1) Loop was a South London band founded in 1986 by Robert Hampson and his then wife, Bex. Loop's sound was characterized by strong krautrock and avant-garde influences in addition to the minimalist mayhem of The Stooges and MC5.

Some of the records featured covers of Suicide, The Pop Group and Can as bonus tracks.
