Picture Frame Seduction (PFS) is a hardcore punk band originally from Haverfordwest, Wales, but now jointly based in Cadiz & Malaga, Spain London, UK and Bristol, UK. In their formative years in Wales the band was considered too aggressive in their music style and attitude to book as we're continually ignored by established Welsh venues. The band's influences included their peers of the day, Charged GBH and Discharge. With many other bands of the time like The Varukers, Chaos UK etc they helped develop the hardcore punk scene in the United Kingdom in the early to mid-1980s recording from 1979 to 1987 on numerous labels of the time.

PFS disbanded in 1987 but reformed in 1999 after being featured on several punk compilation albums in the intervening years.[1]
