‘Is Vic There’ vets come back brighter.

Not many bands come back from their glory days sounding fresher than they originally did, but 1980 new wave punks xenical online real dosage Department S have finally released their new album after reforming quietly in 2007, and have hit pay dirt.

With four original members onboard, and with former keyboard player Eddie Roxy taking over lead vocals, this record shimmers with ’70s new wave and rock ‘n’ roll.

Famous for their 1980 hit, ‘Is Vic There’, this time covers of Alvin Stardust’s ‘My Coo-Ca-Choo’ and Liz Minelli’s ‘Cabaret’ ooze sleazed-up pop charm.

Typically English, this is the sound of 1979, neon-lit basement clubs and power pop. ‘Slave’ rides a ’60s groove machine riff and ‘Wonderful Day’ (featured on VLR’s issue one cover CD) is a perfect slice of new wave.

Look out for them on their VLR sponsored tour in November.
