Chrome Chromosome Damage: Live In Italy 1981 on Colored LP
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Chrome originated with drummer and vocalist Damon Edge in 1976. Edge took inspiration from influences as divergent as proto-punk pioneers like The Stooges, to sound art experimentation like the work of John Cage and Allan Kaprow. When heavy rock guitarist and vocalist Helios Creed joined the band, Chrome officially found their footing.
Creed and Edge developed a unique methodology within Chrome, bringing art into sound, splicing in a sci-fi collage of sound bites, combining searing rock with noise, weirdness, pile driver rhythms, heavy rhythm-guitar riffs, effects-laden vocals and psychedelic guitar leads, and mindbending audio manipulations. They came up during a fertile era of experimentation for music in San Francisco, from the break of punk to the advent of art rock and Industrial musical projects. Chrome was groundbreaking and their de/re-construction of rock 'n' roll created a sound that defied categorization.
The first ever official release of the legendary Chrome concert bootleg, Chromosome Damage: Live In Italy 1981, only one of two existing live recordings that features both Damon Edge and Helios Creed performing together! The rare 11-track set is now being offered on limited edition colored vinyl courtesy of Cleopatra Records.
