Appearing Live!
For only the second time in 25 years The return off..

UK Decay

Having made their triumphant return after 25 years albeit for only one
song played twice at last years Reunion II, UK Decay are set to make
their proper comeback at the forthcoming UK Decay Communities
Reunion III event on June 7th 2008.
It’s quite fitting that UK Decay should return to their hometown for an
event that promises to be an even bigger and better party than that of
last years Reunion II..

According to Steve Spon,

“We are aiming to play significantly more than we did at last years bash.
Provided rehearsals and everything else goes to plan and we can get our
heads around the old songs, I don’t see why we can’t put together a
decent 30 or 40 minute set this time”

The Line up of the band for the evening will include Abbo on vocals,
Steve Spon on guitar, Ed ‘Twiggy’ Branch on bass and replacing the late
great Steve Harle on drums ex Party Girls, Bright Four and Jesus Christ
Supercharger drummer, will be Ray Philpot.
Ex bassist Martin Segovia Smith may also make a guest appearance.

UK Decay Communities are proud that we can now realise one of the
original aims of the formation of the web resource. Not only to bring
forth UK Decay back to the light of the world stage with the re-release
of the back catalogue, but also Live to a new generational audience,
as well as to those that were there back in the day.

UK Decay Communities website contains much information about the
band, thousands of pages and pictures not only of UK Decay but of a
whole generation of bands and the scene that existed in Luton and the
surrounding Home Counties during the eighties.

UK Decay were an important band in the developing Post Punk – Goth
movement, don’t just take our word for it, this is what others have to say!

UK Decay are one of the original bands to cross over from punk to what
was then becoming called “gothic”, in the early ’79 London scene, before
the gothic and even post punk bands like Bauhaus, Theatre of Hate, the
Southern Death Cult, and more. In fact they were already established
when many of those bands were not, and helped get many of them on
their feet with gigs.

Around the same time as Bauhaus were emerging, UK Decay were
discarding their punk roots and developing their own independent “gothic”
sound. Although never as popular as Bauhaus, Joy Division or the
Banshees, UK Decay were far closer to the second wave of Goth bands
and were an important influence on them.
(History of Gothic Culture and the Goth Scene)

UK Decay came straight outta Luton and began messing about with staid
punk rock traditionalism almost immediately. Serving up brash, trouncing
sides heaped up with helpings of brooding sex and sullen menace,
massive sales in the underground and a seminal legacy should have been
(Stylus Magazine)

UK Decay were arguably a major influence on an emerging wave of bands
such as the Sisters of Mercy, Sex Gang Children and Southern Death Cult.
These bands together spawned the emerging postpunk and Goth movements
that still resonate today. UK Decay had a major role in developing these scenes,
but had ceased to exist by the time these other bands started getting serious
press coverage and sales.

In an interview with Steve Keaton from Sounds in February 1981, Abbo
from UK Decay inadvertently named the Goth movement:

“he said ‘it’s
gonna be a movement’ and we’re going nah, we’ll be gone in six months.
He said you’ve got to get a name for it, it’s not dance or alternative or
New Pop or mod… and I remember saying ‘we’re into the whole Gothic
thing’… and we sat there laughing about how we should have gargoyle
shaped records and only play churches. Course he put it all in the
interview.. for six months everything went quiet then when the album
came out everyone was asking ‘what’s this Gothic thing you’re into?’
And it’s a total joke!”

Two months later, in an interview with the US magazine “Flipside”, he
used “gothic” again to describe their style:

Flipside: Is your music political?
Abbo: Uh, well yeah some of it, the early stuff is real political, “For My
Country” was sort of an anti-nationalist thing, pacifist. Our lyrics are now
sort of based on sex and death, mystical, gothic is how we describe it in
England, the new single is about violation of privacy, unexpected guest in
the house, surreal…
(Origins of the term Goth at Scathe Demon)

Appearing Live!
In Luton, at UK DK COM III, the legendary…..

Rubella Ballet

Day-Glo-Anarcho-Psychedelic Punksters, Rubella Ballet to join party!

“These young dayglo warriors would became the main nucleus and
mainstay behind the biggest explosion of colour to hit the late 70’s/early
80’s bleakness of the UK punk scene. Rubella Ballet created that rare
bright hue of primary dischord amongst the hordes of combat black.”[/i]

Rubella Ballet began in early1979 after Zillah & Sid recruited ex Fatal
Microbes Pete Fender & Gemma. Hailing from the Crass, Poison Girls,
Flux of Pink Indian’s Anarcho Punk stable, they soon found themselves
playing on the same bill as those bands and then later under their own
right. They toured the UK and parts of Europe over the next couple of
years. In true DIY style, their first recording; Ballet Bag , was a nine track
cassette in a bag with a badge, poster & lyric book. It was released in
1982 reaching number 9 in the UK independent LP charts. Later that year
their first vinyl single, Ballet Dance, went on to reach number 1 in the
independent single charts and led on to a session on the legendary John
Peel show, the first of two sessions by Rubella Ballet.

In 1983/4, they toured with Death Cult and were riding high again in the
independent charts with ‘42f’ a 3 track EP, released on Jungle Records.
Although the bands line up fluctuated from time to time, the core of Zillah
& Sid (vocals and drums) kept the band together. This they did throughout
the mid eighties releasing further singles and 3 studio albums and a
double live album.
In the 90’s Zillah & Sid collaborated with various members of the dance
collective, Spiral Tribe, to create Xenophobia, an act they would showcase
at various illegal raves.
As Xenophobia, they released a techno dance track for the compilation
‘Beyond the Threshold‘ and subsequent singles appeared under that title.

Into the 2000’s, Zillah & Sid’s Rubella Ballet returned to their punk roots
and headlined The Anti Society festival 2000 in the Czech Republic and
Across the Decades 2 day punk festival at The Sanctuary in Milton Keynes
in 2000. This big event featured bands like The Damned, Stiff Little
Fingers, Selector, Steve Ignorant and the Subhumans etc.

October 2007 Zillah released a film about Punk Rock women entitled,
‘She’s a Punk Rocker UK’. (see below) An hour long documentary
including interviews with Poly Styrene, Eve Libertine, Julie Burchill, Gay
Advert, Vi-Subversa and many more.
Rubella Ballet are currently riding a wave that will see them headlining
the Gothic Pogo Festival in Leipzig Germany in May and the Drop Dead
Festival, Lisbon Portugal in October. The band are now appealing to a
new, young generation who want some of that
Day-Glo-Anarcho-Psychedelic Punksters, DIY ethos!

The band have become infamous for their different and innovative style
of music and the shock value of wearing ultraviolet day-glo clothes to
brighten up London’s east end, dark, violent, poor, ghettoized, drug
dealing, working class shithole that they lived in into a different land as
everywhere they went people smiled and laughed instead of wanting to
kill them.


We are honoured and proud to present to the party….Rubella Ballet!

Milton Keynes very own oldschool, hardcore punx…
Dun 2 Def

Hailing from Milton Keynes in 1996 after being known as “77” they
changed the name to Dun2def in 2001. There has been a few
line up changes and the addition of a second vocalist and some changes in
the sound dun2def is now more rampant than ever before. The line up
includes, FERRET/vocals MAD JON/vocals FLOYD/drums RALPH/bass and

The band have played with many old skool bands such as:
the Varukers, U.K subs, Meteors, the Vibrators, T.V smith, G.B.H, Angelic
Upstarts, Peter and the Test Tube Babies, Subhumans, Slaughter and the
Dogs, Demob, Foriegn Legion, Ed Tudor Pole. Described as Old School
Punk, Dun 2 Def have made a couple of albums and are fast becoming a
force to be reckoned with, in the resurgent UK Punk scene.
Expect a mosh pit, this band will give the UK Subs, Crass and The
Damned a good run for their money!

Ferret and Floyd are well known ‘Faces’ from back in the day, indeed
photos of them can be found our UK Decay Communities ‘Faces Gallery‘.

See you in the mosh pit!

Los Cyclones at Myspace

The finest of Luton today, in the UK!

For the second year running, the return of those Punky Luton darlings…
The Adenoids

Anyone who was at last years party, couldn’t failed to have missed or
have been impressed by Luton’s very own The Adenoids.
The colourful youngsters have a reputation for keeping things short and
sweet often firing off 18 songs in 17 minutes! Very reminiscent of the
early Punk ethos, they are a very big fun band with often poignant
message. They have more than earned their right to return this year and
they promise an even more zany show than last year!

(taken from the bands myspace profile)
Adenoid (ad-e-noid, noun):
A part of your nose which swells up when you drink or smoke too much
and makes you sing like a twat. The Adenoids were formed in 2005 in
Luton and have yet to be removed.

The Adenoids are:
Rebecca the Wrecker (vocals) who wants to be a punk when she grows up.
Stevel Knievel (bass) who likes toast!
The Smoking Katiepillar (drums/vocals) and shouts a couple of her own
Trixylicks homicidal muisli puffs alphabet krinkle scrotum smack head
cum and violence with cartoon porn creatures Adenoid (guitar) is very
silly and he is the original MATTALAN!

Making their debut to UK DK Com R3…Luton’s most unreputable but loveable..

Rogue one way or another have been around since early 2002, after a
few line up changes, last year Matt Ellis took up the reigns and announced
“We’re the worst band you will ever hear”.
Matt then recruited new drummer Kenny and with the addition of Rosie
on vocals, Boulder on guitar and Chris on Bass they now comprise a
colourful if improbable collection of individuals.

The new line up has a harder Punk-ier Metal edge and their gigs have in
the true spirit of Punk, become notorious in the Luton area. They have
just released a 4 track EP which should be available on the night.

Recently they supported Neville Staple’s Specials at the Hat factory in a
storming performance. We shall look forward to their colourful
shenanigans at this year’s event.

Presenting Luton’s very own Techno-Punk, Asbo kids…..

This is one act from Luton that we at UK Decay Communities can’t
wait to present to the party!

Straight-talking electro punks SWANK (Special Weapons And Nice
have been described as “Awful in all the right places”,
“Somewhere between a drunken blow-job off Gary Newman and
electro-shock therapy” and are undeniably one of the most gritty acts
from the Luton punk scene around today.

With classic song titles like Asbo Kids, Fly Tipping and Sex Zombies to
chew over, we can’t wait to see your faces!
