Chrome: Third from the Sun
Here's some early 1980's acid-drenched sci-fi punk goodness. I love all of Chrome's work, but the weirdness level seemed to drop dramatically after Helios Creed left the band. "Third from the Sun" (1982) features Chrome at their peak, and right before their downfall. Both Damon Edge and Helios creed are at their strongest here. Working together, they are near overwhelming, almost too perfect. Helios would leave the band after this recording. What an incredible, heavy space pysch album "Third from the Sun" is. Give it a whirl. Here's "Firebomb" and "Future Ghosts".
