80's rock band genres

Hi, all. I spent some time looking through Wikipedia, but it's not really organized how I want it and I have NO idea what I'd put into google, so I figured I'd ask here! ^_^

Anyways, one of the characters in my story really likes The Smiths (and Morrissey's later stuff). I'm too young to remember the time period myself, but what other (don't have to be especially popular) bands would be from around the same time/have kind of the same groove going on? My knowledge of music is pretty weak, but I'm not usually so bad at searching, so anything (even a genre name besides "indie", which keeps bringing up modern stuff) would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!
