The Decorators were a band from Acton in West London. Formed in 1980, they released two albums and four singles before splitting up in 1984.
Sadly the band did not make a great impact on the music scene and are today remembered by only a few diehard fans.
I’ve always loved The Decorators, from the night I first I heard them on the John Peel show in 1980, to the present day, over 30 years later.
Lyrically a romantic, melancholy and at times self-referential band, they were strongly influenced by the Velvet Underground and The Only Ones. They sang of love and death, betrayal, rebellion, cat people and red skies over Wembley.
