Laughing Academy - Punishment Of Luxury

Laughing Academy
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. However while the recording was still going on, United Artists were taken over by EMI, who dropped the band.

This, their debut album has long been out of print and sought after in the CD format, now thanks to a licensing deal with EMI it’s available again.

The new package features new notes by respected journalist Malcolm Dome who speaks to founder member Neville about his experiences in the band at the time.  It also has as an enhanced booklet with rare photos and memorabilia.
