Album Review :: UK Decay

 

UK Decay :: New Hope For the Dead :: Metropolis Records

UK Decay have been around the block for a while, while only releasing one full length and six EPs /7inches  in the 80s the band has never lost its fan base. In 2013 they have released a 7inch and their first full length since 1981.

What I totally loved about this New Hope For the Dead is the feeling of menace and utter chaos that it presents. There are elements of the album that are 80s new wave electronic, elements that are harmonic, elements that are catchy, and lyrics that are super political, while the whole time you feel like the band is flipping you off, à la the Circle Jerks, Sex Pistols, and the Dead Kennedys.
