DA (Buy CDs by this artist)
Time Will Be Kind EP (Autumn) 1982

Da was an early and important fixture on the Chicago hardcore scene, although the group was musically removed from punk. Spare guitar, bass and drums create a cold, tense background for Lorna Donley's introspective lyrics, which she delivers with surety and strength, occasionally set in pretty melodies. Not a pleasant record, but one with conviction and a definite style on the way to being impressive. In the '90s, after a long layoff, Donley formed Hip Deep Trilogy.
