Dark Entries digs deep into the UK goth underground to unearth The Danse Society 'Demos Vol. 1'. The band formed in Barnsley (England) in 1980 from the remnants of local post-punk bands Y? and Lips-X. Between 1980 and 1982 the band released a handful of 7" and 12" ep's and the debut album 'Seduction' on their own independent label, Society Records. 1983 was The Danse Society’s year. Playing sold out tours and the success of 'Seduction' won them a recording contract with Arista Records. Spending their advance on new equipment the band recorded an album's worth of demos in one day at Greenhouse Studios, London in May 1983. The line-up for this session was Steve Rawlings (vocals), Paul Nash (guitar), Lyndon Scarfe (keyboards), Tim Wright (bass) and Paul Gilmartin (drums). Doom laden guitar riffs, swirling synthesizers, crushing drums, driving and disembodied vocals, characterize the distinctive Society sound. 'Demos Vol. 1' is the closest you'll get to The Danse Society live experience. You can almost taste the dry ice, feel the power coming through the monitors, and become entranced by the strobe-induced madness this album embodies. The Danse Society operate in a raw, atmospheric realm less campy than many of their goth rock peers, unconcerned with pop charts or commercial appeal. These aren't songs, they are commands. This 11 track collection includes an early version of the single "Wake Up", 5 demos that would make the cut for "Heaven Is Waiting", 3 songs that would later become B-sides and 2 unreleased instrumentals. Each LP includes a fold-out, double-sided newsprint poster with photos, lyrics and liner notes. 28 years later these demos capture a band at the height of their confident, powerful and haunting glory. Raw ;)
