No Plan Records

The latest on No Plan Records is the reissue of ARTISTIC DECLINE´s one and only LP "Random Violence" released in 1987. This is a huge album; 26 songs ranging from 23 seconds to just under 3 minutes. In addition to the original collage of photos, the foldout 4-page insert contains all the lyrics, the band´s story told by their guitar player and additional photos and gig flyers. All in all, lots of stuff to keep you busy phonically and visually.

Artistic Decline, 1982-1987, was a Los Angeles band that debuted with the highly coveted 7" Andy Warhol in 1983 on New Underground records. The album that followed was 4 years in the making and when it finally came out in 1987 it contained 26(!!!) songs. Artistic Decline, loved by FLipside, MRR and Jello Biafra, had a varied sound that spaced from mid tempo punk to fast hardcore, but never generic and always superbly performed. Closest comparisons that come to mind would be Circle Jerks, Minutemen, Adolescents, Code Of Honor...
