To date over 850 physical copies and over 1000 downloads have been sold to Hatters and Decay fans throughout the UK and Ireland and Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the USA.
The Hatters Hatters video has had over 12,000 views on the Club’s You Tube channel.
The release attracted local, regional and national radio, press and TV interest, including features on Diverse FM, 3CR, Anglia news, 5 Live and The Luton News and the Daily Telegraph.
There is still remaining stock for sale in the Luton Town FC club shop in the Mall or in Kenilworth Road. The EP is still available for download on I tunes and check out www.ukdecay.co.uk for very limited edition t shirts, hand pressed orange vinyl singles and screen prints.
The band are overwhelmed and grateful for the support from Hatters and UK Decay fans, and townsfolk and we hope to reach our target of £7000.
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.
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!!
