Two things conspired to keep England’s Dark from finding the success they deserved. First, they didn’t fit in with the trendy Britpunk image of the early ’80s — they just were not fashionable enough in a land of mohawks. Second, Fresh Records was going out of business at the time of their debut’s release, and it got little promotion from the label. Still, Chemical Warfare showcases a fine punk band — rough, aggressive, intelligent. The Living End consists of eight songs from the band’s final concert. The audio quality is uneven, but it’s easy to discern that the Dark was an entertaining live band.
