about

Led by that charismatic crooner of an international sports enthusiast John Sharkey III (Clockcleaner, Puerto Rico Flowers) and backed by Andrew Mackie Nelson (Ceremony, Paint it Black) and Mike Sneeringer (Strand Of Oaks, Purling Hiss), the Philadelphian group Dark Blue serve up two fistfuls of velvet lined vitriol for the terrace chanting masses on their debut single for the Jade Tree label. The A Side, Just Another Night With The Boys - an ode to an evening of soccer hooliganism – sonically harkens back to a time in the early 80s when U.K. boot boy bands such as Blitz and Angelic Upstarts shied away from their rough ‘n’ tumble comfort zone to cover Joy Division and Bowie tunes. The flip is a somewhat faithful rendering of ‘Hungry for Love’, the opener from John Cale’s confounding and obscure-as-hell 1984 ‘beach pop’ album Caribbean Sunset. These two tracks recorded by noted Philadelphian producer Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs, Purling Hiss) are here to whet your appetite for the forthcoming Jade Tree full length. Bon appetit!

Dark Blue Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Dark Blue follow up their debut LP, ‘Pure Reality’, with ‘Start Of The World’ – a soundtrack of a decaying United States. Each song drips with the realities of atrocities happening all around us ; John Sharkey III pushes Dark Blue far beyond the post-punk meets oi sound they perfected on their earlier releases, and adds elements of brit-pop and shoegaze. A pop album that makes no apologies. ... more
