Unit 5

  • Unit 5
  • Scared of the Dark (Clone) 1981 

Some members of this Akron, Ohio group were in an early incarnation of the Waitresses; Unit 5’s vocalist, Tracey Thomas, however, is more from the school of Debbie Harry than the late Patty Donahue. The band plays sprightly, slightly synthesized pop with craft and dedication, making Scared of the Dark easy to like.
