This month we thought we would share some of the amazing reviews we have had on our new album Nothing For Nothing
Vive Le Rock - Kicking off with the street punk of 'Runaway', it soon becomes evident they are more than just a punk by numbers act. 'Walking Through The Dust', 'Out Of Sight' and 'Its A Show' are great hooks of hook-ladden rock n roll with great guitar work. Meanwhile 'Glory Girl And The Punk Rock Kid' has a nice Clash style groove that stamps their own identity all over te album. Eugene Butcher
Eaten Alive - Being the bands second album following their well-received debut; "Vaccination" and it carries on in a similar 'take no prisoners' vein. Opener 'Runaway' could easily be a Cock Sparrer track, but the guitar-work sets it apart. 'And You Know It's Time', and the superb 'Walking Through The Dust', come down on the post-punk side of things, whereas 'Im A Mess', is the kind of song The Vibrators excelled at in 78. 'See It Now' embraces the Jam's power-pop-ism tune with an anthemic number. 'It's A Show' is a nifty post-punk tune with great gang vocals. 'Out Of Sight' varies proceedings through by Kicking off with a reggae opening a la The Police before lapsing into 'Grey Day' era Madness. The fantastically titled 'Glory Girl And The Punk Rock Kid', is a bit of a belter. My fav track next being The Jam-ish power-pop of the title track, leaving another '77 punk tune to bring the album to a climax with 'Private insanity'. Bison
Lights Go Out - 2nd comeback album for these London punks, 10 tracks done in a late 70's style. The 2 guitarists also share the vocals on this one so you get a good contrast in style on the songs. Standout song for me is the brilliant title track 'Nothing For Nothing', but to be honest there isn't a bad song on it. Twin guitars, pounding drums and a rumbling bass throughout, these guys are excellent musicians, definitely 1 for fans of Chelsea or Menace. Daz Leake
Next month we look forward to our first performance in just over a year.

New album Nothing For Nothing - 'It looks great, Im on my second listen and im well impressed. normally a track stands out straight away but not on this album., they all stand out and i'm struggling to pick a favourite. The sound is perfect and very well mixed.'
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 (nuzzprowlinwolf.blogspot.com)

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.
