Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Letting the Beast outta the Box

Latest Manchester installment...

Luxuria was a British pop music band made up of vocalist Howard Devoto (formerly of Buzzcocks & Magazine) along with instrumentalist Norman Fisher-Jones, aka Noko. The band was active in the late 80s & early 90s. Devoto & Noko met through Pete Shelley. In 1987 they formed Luxuria & signed to Beggars Banquet. The following year they released their debut album Unanswerable Lust. Their second & final album Beast Box was released in 1990. Beast Box has since been re-released by Cherry Red bundled with Unanswerable Lust & various B-sides & unreleased tracks in 2011 but is again out of print.
