DUST 038/39 RADIUM- THROUGH THE SMOKE AND INTO THE GRAVE

DUST 038/39 RADIUM- THROUGH THE SMOKE AND INTO THE GRAVE


At the beginning of 1980 four bands from the same town by the names of Radium, Hell, Race Against Time and Paralex formed what was known as the East Midlands Band Cooperative. Put together to share gig costs , recording space and perhaps musical ideas the bands rehearesed and gigged within their small geographic location.

Each band was able to squeeze out just one vinyl appearance before dissappearing,some to rise from the dead,some not. This is the story of Radium.

Before receding into obscurity the band was able to release on their own Isotope label the "Through the Smoke 7" which showcased three tracks in their dark but agressive style. The true shame was they had at least a dozen incredible tracks that never made it to the studio, namely "Into the Grave",Satan's Hideaway", "Doomed to Die, Through the Smoke and many others. Luckily a gig was professionally recorded at recently found after 32 years gathering dust.

The material here will document that Radium were among the heaviest of the NWOBHM movement. Fans of WFG/PA/MOTORHEAD/KILLER and VENOM will find interest here...

This release will contain:
Through the Smoke 7" reproduction
Isotope Records Radium 7" marketing Poster
Into the Grave..Alive lp
8 page booklet with interview with Kevin Healey/Full Lyrics and dozens of pics from period.

TRACKLISTING:

SIDE A- ANGEL OF FEAR/MORE FUN IN THE RAIN/BACKSTREET GIRL/DUSTY ROAD/DOOMED TO DIE/SATANS HIDWEAWAY
SIDE B- /THROW IT TO THE WIND/PATHS/SANITARIUM/INTO THE GRAVE/IN THROUGH THE SMOKE/NO CLASS
