Department S are delighted to announce that we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of seminal post-punk new wave chart hit "Is Vic There?" with a brand new re-recorded version to be released on 16th April 2022 to coincide with the anniversary of the band's first Top Of The Pops appearance.

This is the digital download.


This recording of "Is Vic There?" uniquely captures the band's history and its present-day incarnation; not only does it feature the current line up but also boasts a one-off, special guest star appearance by none other than original Department S guitarist and composer of THAT riff- the one and only Mike Herbage!


This artefact is a lovingly crafted tribute to a song which has endured as a post-punk new wave favourite for the last 40 years by the band who are honoured to still be playing it today...


The question still on everyone's lips... IS VIC THERE?
