were a 4-peice band from Southend-on-Sea, Essex, UK. All music was recorded
between 1981 & 1984, mostly in a bedroom, but some pro studio material was
recorded. All music was professionally restored and remastered.
We only made 125 copies of this. Search for "Damarge" in Bandcamp or "Equation Records" & "Damarge" to get a copy (ships from UK or USA) - they're really cheap too!
DAMARGE became very popular and almost made a record but failed (the full story is given in the 32-page booklet that comes with the release). They played a mix of electro, Industrial, post-punk and indie. Influences were Killing Joke, Throbbing Gristle, The Stranglers, New Order, Tangerine Dream and Maurice Ravel.
DAMARGE were: Kirt: Keyboards, piano, tapes and rhythms Oaf: Fender Precision bass through Marshall 8x12 stack Cliff: Vocals & great hair Snowboy: Latin Percussion This release features some of the earliest recordings by Snowboy, internationally renowned Latin percussionist, session musician, author, teacher and DJ. The audio CD has a bonus track of an ultra rare radio advert made by Snowboy.
This CD collects all available recordings of Damarge: fully restored and remastered plus a region free DVD with a live performance from 1983 and numerous extras, including a radio interview. Damarge had a large and loyal following in their day, but they never fully capitalized on their popularity. Their one and only attempt at recording a single ended in farce. This lovingly curated set comes with a 32-page booklet with detailed band history, track-by-track synopsis and recollections of some eventful gigs. A 2-sided poster with pictures and memorabilia with discs housed in thick LP-style gatefold jacket with inner sleeves. Numbered box set comes with signed letter-press inserts.
