Following a brief stint as The Resistors, the Luton based UK Decay was formed in the winter of 1978. From there they became well known and played with many of the original UK punk bands, and even made it to the US. They released several singles and an LP for [url=http://www.discogs.com/label/Fresh+Records+(UK)]Fresh Records[/url], before forming their own label, [l=UK Decay Records]. Their last studio recording was an EP titled [r=403159], recorded in 1982 on [l=Corpus Christi], a Crass label. A posthumous release, "A night for celebration", which was a live recording of the very last show (Klub Foot, Hammersmith, Dec 1982) came out on cassette in early 1983. The remaining members went on to form [a=Furyo] and [a=In Excelsis] with members of post punk/early goth band [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Ritual]Ritual[/url].
