UK Decay Forum Post

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

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.
