3 - Dark Days Coming (1987)
After Jeff Nelson and Ian Mackaye recorded the Egghunt 7'' they decided to form a new band together and recruited Steve Niles and Geoff Turner from Gray Matter. Very quickly Ian decided he wanted to move on so the remaining three grabbed Mark Haggerty, also from Gray Matter. They recorded this album and some extra tracks. toured and imploded, all in a very short space of time.
The D.C. scene has to be my favourite anywhere in the world. The incestuous nature of the musicians has produced a huge amount of music, allot of which I know is sitting in a few very lucky people's basements gathering dust.
