Luton: Centre of the Punk Rock Universe

With Abbo and Spon….

Spon (left) Abbo (right) at DV8 2012

Spon (left) Abbo (right) at DV8 2012

Abbo and I will be at Luton’s Hat Factory Art’s and Media Centre on Friday 25th November to talk about Punk in the Luton area back in the late seventies. This is part of the “40 years of Punk” celebrations going down over November at that venue and widely across the country. I am hoping to put together a few slides of various characters, bands, venues, fanzines from Luton and the surrounding are during the late seventies early eighties period. Hopefully this inspire discussion among ourselves and the audience.

Then Justin Saban will join us and we shall perform a couple our punk platters ‘unplugged’ style. So after I have written this I had better dust off the cobwebs of my guitar and get practicing!

When are UK Decay returning for more gigs and recordings? – As part of the talk we shall be hosting a questions and answers session hopefully this question and many others will be answered!

Tickets are just £5.00 bookable in advance from here

The Poetry of Punk:

Tenderness and Rage

After the recent hiatus in the bands live appearances both Steve ‘Abbo’ Abbott and guitarist Steve Spon will be taking part in the 40 years of punk celebrations later in the year. Further details to be announced soon.

What we can announce is that following the recent ‘Lutonia’ poetry and spoken word festival,  Abbo is curating a festival of punk poetry at the Kings Place , an independently funded arts and music venue in Kings Cross, London.

Hosted by BBC 6 Music’s  Steve Lamacq,  8pm on Saturday 11th June 2016,  Hall One at Kings Place 90 York Way, London N1 9AG

Amongst the frenzied rage of the punk era are some of the most romantic lyrics in the English language. How has punk weaved love, social commentary and uprising so successfully?

Hosted by Steve Lamacq, our festival finale celebrates the poetry of punk with musicians who birthed the movement and transformed the landscape of lyrics with their blistering new approach.

Join The Adverts’ TV Smith, Pauline Murray of Penetration and Crass’ Penny Rimbaud as they discuss Punk’s lyrical heart, and for a unique opportunity to hear them perform some of their hard-hitting classics.

Curated by Steve Abbott, whose early punk playlist and interview with us about the event you can listen to below:

Crimewave hits Luton

Sat 7 May, Russ CrimeWave performs UK Decay lyrics in front of Luton Town Hall.

There wasn’t exactly a crowd but a series of puzzled onlookers who thought they were watching a priest or some sort of crazed politician. The mayor with his gold chain was sat there looking quite unsure for a while before moving on. When he read out the lyrics for  “Killer for the USA” , a bemused asian youth shouted out “what do you mean?” “Killer for the USA” . After a moment of explanation and on receiving a free “God So Loves Decay” lyric book, the youth and his pals walked away puzzled.

All in all , it was a really surreal experience, the poet enjoyed his performance and so did a group of us, the public registered a strange happening under the statue of liberty by the town hall for two hours.the point had been made! Heavy Metal Jews in mind of all the anti-semetism stuff that had gone down, was a bit nerve racking but, I think in the name of punk and poetry , it prevailed!
It was actually really interesting hearing the songs, read out in this way, could this be the start of something new in a similar vane perhaps (sic) ‘punk poetique?’

Finally a confused and indignant looking raconteur priest type chap arrived , apparently he was the regular bible basher for that spot, he had to wait his turn, he turned out to be good humoured thankfully!

Meet Justin “Justinhio” Saban

Some of you may be wondering who is the new guitarist that has recently replaced ‘Johnny G’ who departed earlier this year. Justin “Justinhio” Saban has made appearances at the recent ‘Scum’  and ‘Rebellion’ Festival’s in the UK. Passport issues prevented his appearance at the ‘WGT Festival in Leipzig.

“We were all disappointed that guitarist Johnny G decided to quit the band for ‘personal reason’s’ earlier this year – we would like to wish him all the best for his future plans.
Justin will now help fill out our sound, he has great technique and with the feedback energy of the Decay sound together, will help ignite our performance”
say’s guitarist Steve Spon

So meet Justin “Justinhio” Saban

Justin-Saban at Rebellion Festival 2014

Justin-Saban at Rebellion Festival 2014

Well known on the Luton scene as a recording engineer, Justin has also worked at studios such as Fortress and Southern in London, being heavily influenced by the techniques and punk ethic of John Loder and Steve Albini. As well as championing Luton bands through his Latent Lemon label, he has also recorded many alternative/post hardcore/punk bands.
Justin was re-introduced to UK Decay’s music while working on the Wonderful Town EP, and was hooked, he just had to join the band!
Although discovering in his teens the joy of experimental guitar noise and building fuzz boxes, Justin bizarrely started off gigging properly by playing jazz and big band with folks from Ronnie Scott’s and Humphrey Lyttelton’s bands. However it wasn’t long before the need to make a healthy distorted din enticed him into playing with Luton band Walking On Ice. After leaving WOI he mostly retreated into the studio, producing and playing guitar on many recordings.
Justin owns Latent Lemon Audio and also designs and builds effects pedals, and is an all-things-guitar-and-ampy boffin. You can stalk him at: www.latentlemon.co.uk and

Wonderful Town LTD Editions

In April 2014 UK Decay released the Wonderful Town EP, paying homage to their home town and football club and raising money for two Luton based charities;  Luton Food Bank and SoLYD (Supporters of Luton Youth Development).

We now have some very special and limited collectors items for sale and offered exclusively to UK Decay fan groups.  These include an extremely limited run of 45 hand pressed coloured vinyl EP.  Each one is individual and unique with Perry from Diamond Black pouring orange onto clear vinyl and then adding small quantities of blue and orange after each press.

We also have three numbered hand pulled silk screen proofs (from an edition of 10) of the front and rear sleeve artwork brilliantly done by A Thin Place. One set was recently auctioned for a £1000! Each proof is slightly different . This is truly a one-off opportunity to secure a rare piece of original punk artwork.

Interested? View items here

Remember, all profits go to Lutonfood bank and SoLYD.We will update you on how much has been raised, with cheque presentations to the charities planned before a Luton home game at Kenilworth Road. Be part of the wonderful Town Story!!

With love and gratitude

Che, Abbo, Spon, Ed and Ray.

Wonderful Town EP

The Wonderful Town Ep – is now available on iTunes from Monday April 7th

UK Decay’s new WONDERFUL TOWN EP is available in shops and download stores now. The EP is available as a limited edition 7” vinyl gate-fold sleeve with art print insert, limited edition CD gate-fold single with lyric sheet and as a download.

‘I had the idea for a song about the town I love when walking back to the train station after a Luton game 2 years ago . It dawned on me that it is the common aspiration to live in the countryside , but I thought about the generations of my family that had walked the same streets I was walking , and how , even unbeknownst to me , they had probably helped shape the town in both physically contributing to building the environment around me and as spirits that drank in these pubs , rode their bicycles through these streets , came back from 2 world wars ,I wouldn’t have wanted to be from anywhere else ’ says singer Abbo. ‘ Luton educated me about how to get along with people , their cultures , their music and it gave me probably the biggest interest and thread in my life , Luton Town Football Club . I’ve lived in New York and London for most of my life now , but this powerful magnet brings me back . “

The band worked closely with others in the town to produce the EP, using local recording facilities, design studios and pressing plants. Luton Town Football Club also got involved, with the full first team and manager joining the band in the recording studio to put down cover versions of LTFC fan favourites Bring Me Sunshine and Hatters Hatters. The fourth track is a second version of the lead track, but with lyrics linked directly to LTFC. WONDERFUL TOWN is also available to pre-order and buy through the club shop.

‘Luton moulds and shapes anyone who lives there, it gives you a sense of identity that is rarely reflected in the wider media,’ says guitarist Spon. ‘But the production of this shows how wrong those assumptions can be; everyone involved in this has done it for love and a wish to show that the town is not as it is viewed by others.’

All the proceeds from WONDERFUL TOWN will be split between two charities: Luton Foodbank and SoLYD – a supporters’ initiative that helps fund the club’s youth development. Its production has received the kind support of Latent Lemon Audio, ATP Media and Diamond Black, in addition to Love Luton and LTFC.

So it’s been a busy week for the band. Monday and Tuesday were spent recording four tracks for the Wonderful Town project at Justin Saban’s Latent Lemon Studios in Luton.
On the Wednesday we then spent the day filming the live sequences for a video that will support the above, before Spon and Ed headed back to the studio to lay down final overdubs.
In between all this, Abbo also managed to squeeze in the time to sing with some very special guests at the Hat Factory (thanks Fahim and Paul for sorting out the venue and recording at such short notice!).
We’ll be sending out more updates on the Wonderful Town project over the next few weeks – see you then.
