Vaccination Reviews

Been driving for just over 10 hours in the last 2 days with Vaccination on loop the whole time and it keeps sounding better and better! Looking forward to the next time I see you guys live which should be Gloucester in July - GD

New album ‘Vaccination’ has a superior modern production job, but the likes of ‘Make A Noise’, Idiot Kid, Fake News could of sprung straight from 1977. ‘Don’t worry (‘bout you and me) is a storming rocker while ‘Shit happens’ and ‘So We Stand’ have a Mod-ish 60’s edge. – SB (Vive Le Rock)

Plague UK are like a Sound Effects era Jam, Or Billy Bragg with balls fronting a Rock band. Poppy, Tuneful and catchy undercurrents amongst the waves of almighty full rock on and pogo anthems. Vaccination is a real shot in the arm, the perfect prescription. A righteous, noteous soundtrack and antidote to these trouble times. MN (

A bit about us!

Plague UK a 4 piece band from South London, Edgy, Full on Power motivated monster of energy with hungry chords, lead splits and dynamic structures, Plague UK bring something unique to the table. Catchy melodic Punk Rock with a twist of 60's pop sensibility.


Marc Jefferies on lead guitar and vocals, Marc the vocalist and guitarist from the original 76 outfit The Plague, Joined up with Lee Morrell, who was mates with Marc for many years. Lee has been drumming in a variety of bands over the years and teamed up with Marc to recreate the vibe and feel of power and energy that was had back in the late 70’s,


They then met Simon Godfrey rhythm guitar / vocalist from a different project and felt that Simon would be a great addition to the band as Simon and Marc vocals sit really well with each other, and have different styles of guitar flow, which compliments each other. Then all there was left to make the band complete was a Bass player, of which was found with Martin Taylor, Martin was perfect for the outfit, great style, and great sound and his techniques suited this new sound, this new energy. Plague UK is now something to see for yourselves, so you can make up your own mind.
