    Wer kennt sie noch? PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY mit einer frühen 7inch.

    Eine dieser wunderbaren, bemerkenswerten Stücke, die man nie vergisst. Damals moderner Rock auf höchstem Niveau. Nur 2einhalb Minuten lang, aber SOOO viel drin.

    Hier noch mehr von ihnen, je 3 Stücke einer Peel Session. Die Band hatte es total drauf. Scheuten sich als Band, die in jedem fall durch die Punk Bewegung hervorging, aber eher eine Mischung von Genesis auf Punk mit etwas Captain Beefheart mit einem guten Schuss New Rock bot, auch nicht vor relativ langen Stücken.

    Punishment of Luxury, also known as Punilux, are a four-man post-punk band from Newcastle, England, who still write songs and play gigs but were particularly active in the late 1970s and early 1980s.[1] They released an album Laughing Academy on United Artists, and another on Red Rhino Records. They reformed in the late 1980s for a while and finally in 2007. From a background working in English fringe theatre groups, Punishment Of Luxury were a four-man post-punk band formed in December 1976 in Newcastle.[2] Taking their name from an 1891 painting by Giovanni Segantini in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, the band consisted initially of Brian Bond (born Brian Rapkin - vocals), Neville Luxury (born Neville Atkinson - guitar, vocals), Red Helmet (guitar, vocals), Jimi Giro (bass guitar, vocals), and "Liquid" Les Denham (drums).[2][3] They released a single, "Puppet Life" on the Small Wonder label in July 1978.[2] In 1979 they signed to United Artists and released the singles "Engine Of Excess" with Mick Avery on drums, then with new drummer Steve Sekrit (born Steven Robson), made "Secrets", and the album Laughing Academy.[2] In the Summer of 1979 they played at the Reading Rock Festival after The Cure and before The Tourists and Motörhead. 1980 saw the release of the single "Laughing Academy". 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. A final European tour was followed by Bond's departure. WIKI

    2013, die Band ist wieder da. Leider sind Klang und Bild nicht so dolle. Aber sie bilden anch wie vor eine schnittstelle zwischen Punk und Prog.
