Biography

A new phenomenon comes across Italy. For three years now, Italian club nights like London Loves in Milan and Rome’s Fish n Chips have been bringing the post-punk and industrial sounds of London’s East End to Italian audiences, playing the same records and bringing the same bands - Hatcham Social, Neils Children, Ipso Facto, Electricity In Our Homes, These New Puritans - to Italian fans, and gathering the country’s like-minded youth under the banner of the alternative. Now the reaction is imminent: a new wave of Italian groups is trying its luck in London, returning to its musical roots in a foreign city, with its own singular sound.

General Decay employ the leaping basslines and chiming guitars of groups like Siglo XX and Asylum Party, but also take chilly atmospheric notes from their European predecessors’ original influences (mostly Joy Division).
