Sadly Dean Peckett died in 2016, as the band began putting the collection ‘Sorted!’ together.
The 2006 release was in response to the resurgence of interest in Party Day through their song ‘Atoms’, which continued to be played at clubs throughout Europe. Since then, there has been further interest in their songs, with more airplay and Livestream shows. Leads us to the here and now and some Forty Years on from their beginning…mid pandemic 2021 sees the release of ‘Sorted!’ (Optic Nerve Recordings). More than a nostalgic look back to a band who probably deserved more of a profile on the post-punk Goth scene who wrote some really decent songs of which you’ll hear when playing these loving constructed discs particular highlights for me are ‘Career’ from the second album and the Banshee like twist of the rhythmic ‘Carousel’ from the debut album and the darkness and venom displayed on ‘Row The Boat Ashore’ top tunes even now.
