Gallery News
June 29th 2006

Check... this....post... for the latest UK Decay Community Gallery updates!..... From now on, all new updates to any of the Galleries will be reported below..........


Whats new in the Gallery?

From now on, all Gallery updates will be featured on this post below.
So this is one place you will be able to quickly check for new images.
Previously, depending on what image was updated a post
was made in a corrosponding topic, relevant to the image.
It was logical at first to do it this way, however now there are now
over 600 images in the Galleries and with the passing of time
coupled with the growing complexities of the sub Galleries, for the aid
of easier navigation, we shall now use this post to document all updates!

Did you know that you can also use 'RSS' to keep a check on the
Gallery updates?

The UK Decay Community Gallery is now 'RSS' complient so if you
have a 'RSS' reader you can use that to keep up to date with all the
latest updates!
Just click the little red 'RSS' icon at the bottom of the gallery page
and add it to your reader. You can either 'add' the whole Gallery,
or you can choose your favourite Gallery to add!
Whole UK Decay Community Gallery RSS

Cant read the text?: Image to small?

If the image is too small, eg to read the text, simply click on the image;
this will enlarge the image making text readable (on most occasions!)
We have been carefull to make sure that all digitized images containing
text are readable at the maximum size!
Another click on the image will bring it back to the normal size!

Rick Ramswell and their fashion aspirations! (They later opened

Splendid stuff!

Gallery Update! 10 July 2006

We have been reorganising the Gallery structure over the last few days!
The Gallery program itself has been updated, this will mean many new
features ( we shall have to discover for ourselves as to what they
actually are/do)!
We have now fixed the gallery 'ghost album' bug that has caused
problems for the administrators: although this didn't affect the viewer
visually, it meant that we couldn't create any new 'sub folders'; hence
now we can in the next few days, upload a couple of Fanzines and other
items that have been sent in!

Many thanks to James at SDZ for the hard work and time getting
this sorted for us!

Aylesbury "Fiars" poll flyers from the years 1979-80


Click here to view the "Friars Poll Gallery"


The Legendary Aylesbury "Friars" music venue will figure in many
memories.
Looking through the lists of poll results from the two years 1979 and 1980
brings back recollections of heady days spent raising funds and lifts to
get our butts over to one of the regions best loved venues!
For UK Decay it was an honour to be offered a gig there, and when they
finally did get that gig with Killing Joke the band pulled out all the stops
and rocked the house with one of their most potent local performances
in front of a largely local crowd.

In the year 1979, Decay were still relatively new on the scene but had
already started to make inroads in the polls, achieving 10th in the
’best local band’ poll alongside Ayelsbury’s own John Otway.
The band also achieved a 71st in the ‘Bands you would most like to see at F.A.
(Friars Aylesbury, UK) in 1980’.
By 1980 UK/DK had made many gains in the polls reaching 7th in ‘The most
enjoyable gig’ (the gig with Killing Joke and the Passions) a staggering 1st in
the ‘Best support band’ poll, whilst achieving a modest 4th in the ‘Best local
Band’. On the downside, the Killing Joke/Passions/UK Decay gig was 3rd in
’The most disappointing date’ poll but to cap it off Decay were 22nd out of 118
bands in the category ‘Bands you would like to see at F.A. in 1981’
That list includes such bands as Pink Floyd, The Cure, The Police, B52’s,
The Ramones, The Stranglers, Spandau Ballet etc etc, all below UK DK!

LU7’s Chronic Outbursts also were making inroads on the polls by 1980
Achieving 21st in the ‘Best local Band’ poll.

Overall these polls are fascinating reading for many that will remember Friars
and also for many that will be interested in the Aylesbury come Punk/New Wave
and general music scenes from the late 70’s to mid 80’s in the UK.

Our thanks goes out to Richard for scanning and sending these in
for us all to enjoy!

If anyone has any other years poll charts from Friars please share
them with us! In the first instance please contact me
werewolf@ukdecay.co.uk

And please dont forget you can click the image for a larger
'text readable version'!
