How about the song "Welcome to the pleasure dome" by FGTH, not obscure, not a lot of weird time signatures, but more prog than Spandu Ballet and Level 42.

Would Oingo Boingo's Only A Lad be a good choice?

Oingo Boingo are classified as "Crossover Prog" here on PA.......so they don't qualify.

Flash and the Pan…especially the 2nd album “Lights in the Night.”

Boys Brigade. They had a hit single, Melody, from their one and only album. Their best-known member, Malcolm Burn, is better known as a producer these days.

Ultravox , Magazine and JOHN FOXX 

How about 
Alphaville, New Musik, Icehouse, Talk Talk, Xymox plus the Fischer Z album Word Salad and a delightful debut record from The Expression out of Australia 
One more: Gentlemen Without Weapons -s/t is a hard find though!

Speaking of Bill Nelson....he had a great influence on Stuart Adamson of The Skids and Big Country fame. Check out The Skids "Days in Europa" (Produced by Nelson) and "The Absolute Game", which in my opinion is an almost unclassifable album ie. it's not punk, it's not rock, it's not new wave, it's The Skids music of 1980 and it's monumental! My favourite non prog album of all time. Buy the expanded "The Absolute Game" CD with the bonus album "Strength Through Joy" on it.......now we are heading into weird territory!
