"The excellent Forced Nostalgia label strikes pay dirt again with this reissue of little-known UK group Pump's jaw-dropping 1987 debut album, The Decoration of the Duma Continues. Pump, a duo of Andrew Cox and David Elliott, had previously recorded numerous cassettes as MFH and had collaborated with the likes of Nurse with Wound before conjuring up this amazing blend of electro post-punk black magick. Decoration at times draws similarities to works by peers like 23 Skidoo, Cabaret Voltaire, This Heat, and even a bit of early Coil, blending pummeling drum machine rhythms with dark synth drones, deep echo-chamber bellowing vocals, and the eerie whirs and squeals of manipulated tapes and guitars. Karl Blake from Shock Headed Peters and Lemon Kittens provides guest vocals on one track, and the whole thing shines as an unfairly overlooked document of the fertile mid/late-'80s transition/cross-pollination of the post-punk and industrial scenes. Even at its noisiest, this album has a deep streak of beauty lying underneath, and anyone with an interest in this sound and era would be foolish for passing this up. It's remastered and presented in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve, and like all the best stuff coming out these days, is limited. Buy now or cry later, trust me!" Other Music

Packed in a beautiful gatefold vinyl pressing - with a suitably rich master and cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.
