The Last Cry - The Last Cry 12" (1987) + The Last Cry - Downpour 12" (1989)
The Last Cry were yet another UK goth/wave band that formed in 1986 and existed into the early 90s. The majority of the tracks on these two releases contain a Mission-esque sound, but the debut 12" certainly contains some stronger guitar wave influences and is clearly the better of the two in my opinion. You could possibly lump them in with groups such as Flowers For Agatha, Brothers of Craig, Burning Skies of Elysium... though the second 12" has a purely conventional goth rock sound that you might expect from this time period.
An archive site still exists that contains information on the original lifespan of the band as well as some unreleased tracks you can download from this period. Some years back, the band reformed and have been quite active lately (a new CD just came out). If you're interested in checking that out, you can view their Facebook page.
