2LP The Dark – Chemical Warfare
DELUXE VINYL EDITION!!!
“Chemical Warefare” is the debut album by Islington punks THE DARK, originally released in 1982. The Dark were similar to The Wall, another band with whom they shared a highly political outlook. The mostly mid-speed music also invites comparisons to Chelsea and the UK Subs. “Chemical Warfare” deserves a lot more credit than nearly all the punk albums it found itself lumped in with. The Dark invested their songs with melody and catchy as hell guitar motifs, and thoughtfully avoided the mindless rage typical of the time.
