The Decoration of the Duma Continues - Pump [1987]

The Decoration Of The Duma Continues Cover Art

Reviewed at the time of its initial release, the album was described by The Observer as "bad mood music" while Melody Maker said it sounded like "the clanging and abrasion of rusted and misaligned gears and ratchets..." - and it is precisely that slightly unhinged, brilliantly forward-thinking marriage of beauty and decay that makes The Decoration of The Duma Continues stand out so brightly against the backdrop of the music released at the time. Pump, to our minds at least, really are one of the great forgotten bands of the era.
