In Excelsis - Prey LP


In Excelsis formed in 1983 when UK Decay split up. Guitarplayer Spon asked ex-Ritual members Mark Bond and Errol Blythe to start a new band.
In Excelsis released three 12"s during their existence. The 'Prey' album is a posthumous release containing tracks of the 12"s but most of them in a remixed form. 2 tracks were never released before: 'Bassman Trigger Happy' and 'Militia'. The last 2 tracks were recorded live at the Moonlight Club in 1984. Here you can listen to 'Vows' in it's entire version.
In Excelsis also did a Peel session. Anyone has a copy?
The first 12", 'Carnival Of Damocles' can be found on the Punks On Postcards blog.
Another ex-UK Decay band, Furyo is posted on Cactus Mouth Informer.
Visit the UK Decay site for more info on In Excelsis.

Note: live tracks ripped as one track.
