Okay, I've got some non indiepop suggestions, based on what you've listed there. Apologies if I'm stating the obvious with any of them...

Television
The Stooges
The Kinks
The Beach Boys (specifically Pet Sounds onwards)
Harmonia (if you like the more spacey Can songs)
The Birthday Party
Talking Heads
No Age
Silver Apples
Devo
Howlin' Wolf (massive influence on Captain Beefheart)

Here's a few:

Lets Wrestle should be right up your street. http://www.myspace.com/letsfuckingwrestle" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And any of Davy Henderson's bands - Fire Engines, Win, Nectarine Number 9 or the Sexual Objects.

The German band S/T are very Can influenced, and produce the most amazing hand made records/CDRs. http://www.myspace.com/sssssttttt" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hope there's something you like/don't know...

A few more thoughts:

Pop stuff:
Big Star
The Chills
The Clean

In a Can vein:

Neu (particlulary the track "Hallogallo": if you like a Krautrock groove, you should LOVE that).
Faust

I've been meaning to give Neu a listen for a while now too actually. Faust are great - I've listened to Faust IV pretty much all day today.

I'll second that...I love Faust IV, also the self titled clear vinyl/clear sleeve one...

Anyone into Faust I would point in the direction of Slapp Happy's 'Acnalbasac Noom'. It's gettable on CD off eBay I think. It's an alternative version of their 1973 record 'Casablanca Moon' and it's one of the most wonderful slabs of art pop I've ever heard. The original version of 'The Drum' (as later covered by Bongwater) is on there. It was recorded at Faust's studio and most of them play on the record. Dagmar Krause never sounded so beautiful voiced and accessible.
