Dark Day - Hands In The Dark (7'', 1979)

In the mid-1970s, Robin Crutchfield moved to New York to participate in the growing conceptual and performance art movement. After several performances in galleries and alternative spaces which received critical acclaim, he broke away from the scene to pursue music.

In 1979, after having formed the infamous no wave band DNA with Arto Lindsay and Ikue Mori, and recorded a single for Lust/Unlust and four tracks for the Eno-produced "No New York" album, and having gigged with DNA for nearly a year, Robin determined the band was moving in a direction counter to his own interests and left to form his own project, Dark Day.

With the aid of Nancy Arlen (Mars) and Nina Canal (The Gynecologists and Ut), he released an initial single "Hands In The Dark" b/w "Invisible Man" on Lust/Unlust, Charles Ball's fledgling label which had already released the historic debut recordings of Lydia Lunch's groundbreaking Teenage Jesus & The Jerks, as well as the aforementioned DNA single.
