• Actifed
  • Dawn of a Legion EP (UK Jungle) 1984 

Produced by ex-Generation X-er Tony James, West London’s Actifed pounds out powerful semi-bleak rock with dense guitar noise on this four-song 12-inch. Neither awesome nor awful, what must be the only band ever named after a brand of antihistamine is muscular but undistinguished.
