Charge : Destroy The Youth

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Charge were one the most underrated bands of early 80's London punk scene, along with The Straps in my opinion. These posts come from their second ep "Destroy The Youth" on the Kamera label. Their third ep "Fashion" saw them dip their toe into the Proto Goth end of the market along with bands like Theatre of Hate and Sex Gang Children ("Posi Punk" as it was laughingly called at the time). The bands only lP "Perfection" came out in 1982, the band spilt shortly after.
Guitarist Stu P Didiot unfortunately passed away in 2003 after a battle with cancer.

Hi, just to let you know that Perfection was their 2nd LP. Caged and Staged was their 1st Lp. A live album recorded in Germany in 1980.It also came with a free fanzine.
