Product Description

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 northeast
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.

Format: Audio CD
It's a great album even after all these years, we should be grateful that someones taken the time and trouble for an album that won't sell millions.
I was very please to see Laughing Academy and 7 re-released and bought both. And of the two, 7 is the better record in my opinion. Less edgy and jagged, more polished and commercial - but still uniquely Punilux and great fun.
The bonus track "Hold Me" is ok, but probably not really needed - but the mighty "Gas Man" has gone walkabout from the original vinyl LP, and he's sorely missed.
Mustn't grumble though, 5 out of 6 tracks on "7" are top notch.

A band that didn't garner much attention in their years of existence other than to those lucky few who were aware that such original and infectious music existed, it's great to see that their original albums have finally had a re-release.

7 is my favorite of their releases, and has great songs like 'Funghi', 'Bird and the Elephant' on it that are the kind of songs you hear once and you're hooked. There's one bonus song but for some reason 'Gasman' is missing. This would certainly be a 5 star album if it wasn't for the fact that one of the recordings from the original album has gone AWOL.
