Perth-based skate punk monsters The Decline have released their album ‘Flash Gordon Ramsay Street’ into the world – featuring their pop-punk animal rights anthem Brovine and Tony Hawk Pro Skater inspired track love song It Was Always You. It’s available now through Pee Records and digitally at https://ffm.to/thedecline_fgrs – oh, and they are currently bringing it all around Australia on tour NOW!
The album has turned a lot of heads – from a tonne of spins on triple j’s Short Fast Loud and on The Faction, a full album stream premiere at Punk Rock Theory as well as Track of the Day love from The AU Review!
Sound The Sirens said that “Flash Gordon Ramsey Street is concise, to-the-point, and a furious medley of skate punk urgency that is relevant to young adult life as punks in Australia. Great production values to boot mean you can’t go wrong here.“
Punk Rock Theory posits that “If you are like me and like your melodic punk rock snotty, urgent, fast, fun and melodic, then ‘Flash Gordon Ramsay Street’ is just the album for you. The Decline have got all of the above in spades. And then some.“
Noise Pollution says the experience of listening to the record was “…a manic race on sneakers through the suburb at sundown. I found it satisfying that although they come from the same theme, they do not sound exactly alike. This album is the troublesome adolescence you will never forget. This is the temporary state of being free.”
Both singles Brovine and It Was Always You received a tonne of love from playlists – managing to kickflip their way into a tonne of Spotify playlists, including Punk Essentials, Skatepark Punks and New Punk tracks, as well as onto triple j’s Short Fast Loud radio playlist!

‘Flash Gordon Ramsay Street’ is produced, recorded, edited and mixed at Underground Studios (Roger Waters, Karnivool, Make Them Suffer) with Brody Simpson, Mark McEwen and The Decline, and is a collection of 17 punchy tracks ranging in length between just 5 seconds and 4 minutes. This huge offering has been pulled from the weird and wacky brain space of Pat Decline (Vocals & Guitar), Ben Elliott (Vocals & Guitar), Ray Ray (Bass & Backing Vocals) and Harry (Drums).
