7 - Punishment Of Luxury

From a background working in left-wing English fringe theatre groups, Punishment Of Luxury were a four-man post-punk band formed in December 1976 in the north-east of England, and released a single, Puppet Life on the Small Wonder label in June 1978. In 1979 they signed to United Artists and released the single Jellyfish/Engine Of Excess and the album Laughing Academy. 1980 saw the release of the single Secrets/Brain Bomb. All received critical acclaim and sold well. An extensive European tour followed and United Artists sent the band into the studio to record another album, a concept album to be called Gigantic Days. In 2007 they reunited and played a few songs for the bassist Jimi Giro's 50th birthday party. A little more than a year later they landed a gig at a small pub in Gateshead, in the north-east of England called The Three Tuns. The gig was considered a success and was written about in The Guardian newspaper The band are planning on more gigs in the future and possibly introducing more new material, of which a taster was given in the form of one song called Fracture at the Three Tuns. On June 12 2009 they played at the Luminaire in Kilburn, North London. This, the album they recorded for Red Rhino is released now with bonus material, extensive notes and deluxe artwork.
