“Yeah Baby” by Julian Wolfendale

Yeah Baby.. A soundtrack to life by Julian Wolfendale

Yeah Baby.. A soundtrack to life by Julian Wolfendale. Check out Julians new site

“What happens when teenage rebellion runs out of steam and one day you wake up to find yourself someone else, up to your neck in drugs and guns. It began in 1981 with LU7 Punks. Leighton Buzzard. Safety pins and Stillettoes. Ended up in Andalucia with Corvettes and Brownings.
Accompanied by all the music of a life.”

‘Yeah Baby’is amust read for all those that grew up in the
hazy days of the early UK 1980’s post-punk scene and then progressed
on to the early UK free party-scene later in that decade. By the 1990’s
and into this century the story ends up via Holland and Goa, to the sleazy
Costa Del Sol and the Brit ex pat underworld.
Julian and his late friend were two such of life’s colourful adventurers;
the tale is woven with both fact and fiction in an invigorating stylish way.
One of the key linking features and one that will want to make one reach
for the old poppadom collection, is the way Julian recalls his experiences
with the soundtrack of the time.

Julian has now set up a new web page for the book, which is growing from strength to strength. There are some ace reviews and details where the book can be purchased. At the recent Glastonbury Festival the book was on sale at two of the main bookstalls. Julian writes an interesting blog on his visit to the festival which is on the new website.

According to Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson (The League of Gentlemen)
UK Decay’s ‘Werewolf’ is ‘Scun’

The Guardian Guide Magazine article on Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson's 'Scun'

The Guardian Guide Magazine article on Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson's 'Scun'

A couple of texts and a shout on the forum alerted the staff in a rather bleak Aldwyck Towers last week to the fact that there was mention in the Guardian Guide magazine of the UK Decay’s horror epic, Werewolf.
On further investigation and thanks everybody by the way, for the shout, we were able to ascertain that Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson from ‘The League of Gentlemen’ were talking about their new concept of ‘Scun’.

This is a play on words ‘scary, but fun’ = ‘Scun’!

On being asked to explain the new concept Andy told his experience of hearing the track ‘Werewolf’ for the first time when Jeremy insisted on playing it to him.

Apparently it brought him to tears, he was so scared. UK Decay had found a werewolf, provoked it and then recorded it……..Urban myth in the making? If only he knew the half of it!

Could there be any truth to the rumour the boys had fed the captured werewolf a crate of cheap baked beans before the recording session?

Anyway ‘Ghost Stories’ looks like a lot of fun for those ‘brave enough’ to check it out

Independent on Sunday 2005 article on scary sounds

Its not the first time the track ‘Werewolf’ has attracted the attention of the national press. Back in 2005 the ‘Independent on Sunday’ published an article written by Suzi Feay on the topic of Ghost stories and scary sounds.

Werewolf took the honour of ‘Scariest Sound ever’ in the writers opinion.

Drop Dead Magazine: issue 2 Feat. UK Decay!

Deathrock Punk Goth Psychobilly Wave

Drop Dead Magazine Issue 2 summer 2006

“A great new magazine to fill the void that New Grave left (and
then some). Deathrock, Goth, Psychobilly, Gothabilly and Post-Punk – you’ll find it all
in Drop Dead Magazine, which is put out by the same people who bring us
the phenomenal Drop Dead Festival.”

Issue 2 of Polina Y’s visually stunning, USA based Drop Dead Magazine
is now available from vendors across North America. This edition contains a 6-page
feature on UK Decay, with Lakina coaxing out of Steve Spon some very
dark and colourful memories from the age of Decay!
Also featured are interviews with Andi Sex Gang (by Greg Fasolino), Lena
Lovich, SIIIII, Black Ice, Vox Ab Nihil, Deadbolt, Psychcharger,
and a look at the
Cemeteries of Prague.
The magazine also contains reviews of clubs, festivals, new and old school releases,
DIY, artwork and fashion, Music business help for artists and a lot more goodies!
This really is a ‘hardware’ magazine which reminds very much of the now defunct UK
‘Zig-Zag’ magazine. Full colour and gloss paper it is a lovingly crafted publication for
the ‘now’ generation, it even has a fascinating article about stencilling, dyeing;
customising ones clothes; “For the less you spend on clothes,
the more you’ll have for records and gigs”

Fantastic stuff, but for the UK public, I guess if you are after a copy you will have
to think, mail order or import it from the European distributor in Germany.
More details can be found on the magazine website
Drop Dead
or at their Myspace Site..
