Swell Maps were an experimental English rock group of the 1970s from Birmingham that foreshadowed the birth of post-punk [and noise/garage rock I’d say].
Influenced by the disparate likes of T.Rex and the German krautrock outfit, Can, they created a new soundscape that would be heavily mined by others in the post-punk era. Despite existing in various forms since 1972, Swell Maps only really came together as a musical entity after the birth of British punk rock. [source]

Universal Order of Armageddon was an American hardcore band, active from 1992 to 1994 and reformed in 2010. They became known for their extreme short chaotic performances, sometimes resulting in complete destruction. Drummer Brooks Headley once said, "Our live shows are like turning on a vacuum cleaner for like ten minutes". Guitarist Tonie Joy and bassist Scott Malat would often leap off their amplifiers resulting in hurting themselves and their equipment. (source)
