A night to unwind at the O2

Steve Ignorant’s – Slice of Life, Frankie B’s – At Night We Cry and Cambridge’s very own Freedom Faction and a wonderful crowd , joined us for a mega night to unwind at the O2 Academy, Islington, London last Saturday. Big thanks to all of the artist’s mentioned above, plus Frank Flag, Jason and the O2 technical crew and staff for making the show run pretty much glitch free. We really enjoyed ourselves and thought all the other bands and the audience were fantastic, the O2 is well set up technically for bands, apart from the countless flights of stairs between the stage and the dressing rooms.

The only regret is that we didn’t get chance to meet up with everyone afterwards, the management needed everyone out, so they could open the night club in time.

Electrowerkz, Angel, Islington, London,
16th February 2013

A Night For Celebration as UK Decay take London by storm with their first gig in the present incarnation. Louder Than War, needless to say, were in the audience in the form of writer Dave Jennings & photographer Elaine J.

It’s thirty years since UK Decay played their legendary farewell gigs at the Klub Foot in Hammersmith yet the hundreds who crammed into the Elecrowerkz will agree the world is a much better place with the band back among us and the fact that the show coincides with the release of their new single ‘Killer / Heavy Metal Jews’ is additional cause for celebration ..more……
