From a background working in left-wing English fringe theatre groups, Punishment Of Luxury were formed in December 1976 in the north-east of England, and released a single, Puppet Life on the Small Wonder label in June 1978. In 1979 they signed to United Artists and released the single Jellyfish/Engine Of Excess and the album Laughing Academy. 1980 saw the release of the single Secrets/Brain Bomb. All received critical acclaim and sold well.

An extensive European tour followed and United Artists sent the band into the studio to record another album, a concept album to be called Gigantic Days. However while the recording was still going on, United Artists were taken over by EMI, who dropped the band. Punishment Of Luxury released two further albums on the Red Rhino label, Seven in 1983 and Feels Like Dancing Wartime in 1984. The album Gigantic Days was finally released, on CD, in 1998. The band took their name from an 1891 painting by Giovanni Segantini in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
