For this 1981 release, DAMON EDGE and HELIOS CREED brought in brothers JOHN & HILARY STENCH on drums and bass. The brothers hailed from the extremely popular local new wave band, PEARL HARBOUR & THE EXPLOSIONS, formed in 1978 in San Francisco. This new rhythm section can definitely be heard, making Chrome a bit more ‘danceable’ if you will and the first inklings of that driving industrial metal beat can be heard. Tracks like excellent “Perfumed Metal” are a perfect example of this transformation. It was also in 1981 that Chrome received an offer to perform live in Italy from a group of Italian fans. Chrome had never appeared live before, but unbelievably they accepted the Italian gig and flew to Bologna, Italy to play their first ever live concert. The “live instrumental track” included here is from that legendary Italian concert, on July 20, 1981.
