Dead Or Alive, The Decorators: I.C.A., London
Leyla Sanai, New Musical Express, 5 September 1981
I MISS The Room — put it down to the usual punctuality of the Jubilee Line. The Decorators are surprisingly palatable to the cool, coiffeured ICA audience. When they cross melancholy with cabaret, they come out with tracks like 'Without You', all '30s Berliner sax and seductive drawled Reed vocals. The greyer moments are when inchoation takes refuge in safety, resulting in insipid drabness.
