Dark :: Dark Round the Edges

“Obscure” isn’t the word to describe British psych band Dark’s 1972 LP Dark Round the Edges. Recorded at S.I.S. Recording Studio LTD in Northhampton, the record’s private press run was less than meager. Only about 50 copies were ever pressed, the bill footed by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Steven Giles. But the album’s legend grew as decades passed, as heads and collectors caught wind of the lost fuzz-guitar classic, its sleeve featuring a model posed stoically on a floral-printed couch, like an American Apparel advert 30 years too early.
