PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY (Buy CDs by this artist)
Laughing Academy (UK UA) 1979

In its (few) better moments, Newcastle's Punilux resembled a cross between Roxy Music and a drunken edition of early XTC. The rest of this album is synth-sweetened heavy metal riffing from a minor talent turned sophomoric and sour. Favorite line: "Vanity has bum ways."
