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.

HOPE


Album available as download here

In September 2009 a casual conversation led to a bold attempt to bring
together some of the biggest names from the goth and dark alternative scenes to raise funds for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation

Sophie Lancaster was kicked to death in August 2007 simply because she looked different.
Since her tragic death the Foundation has worked hard to bring about change, through workshops in schools and a campaign for an amendment to the UK Hate Crime laws.

“Hope” has been put together with the sole intention of raising the
maximum amount of money possible, with 100% of the price paid going directly to the charity.

The CD features unreleased material and tracks written especially for the foundation.
Every track has been kindly donated free of charge by the artist and it has been released in conjunction with World Goth Day (May 22nd 2010)

Tracklist:

Joolz – The Prophet of Calgary
Andi Sex Gang – Salamun Child
Autumn Cannibals – Monument to Shame *
Gene Loves Jezebel – Who Wants To Go To Heaven?
The Eden House – All My Love
Collide – Euphoria
Alien Sex Fiend – Gotta Have It (Sliced and Diced mix)
Andi Sex Gang & Marc Almond – The Hungry Years
UK Decay – Battle of the Elements (club mix) **
The Last Dance – Cages
Anne Marie Hurst – I Have Changed **
New Model Army – Dawn
The Mission – She’s Gone Away **
Uninvited Guest – Death of an Angel *
Faith and the Muse – To Be Continued
