One of the most #progressive#Manchester#fashion#brands of the late 90s is BACK! A brand can be measured by the #generations it #influences, and Steely Flats has been there and done that.
From #skate park, to #snow park. From Manchester’s #Hacienda to #LondonFashionWeek. From the rain that falls hard on a #humdrumtown to the sun kissed streets of #Sydney, the bustling streets of #Mumbai to the Gucci laced plazas of #Milan this brand has been there………….and got the T-Shirt!
Yes, okay we’ve been off the radar for a while but we’re back. We’re back with the same #high-quality products that have been hand sourced to guarantee #100% #satisfaction and years of coolness and funk.
We now want to influence the next generations cool and we want you to help us. Since the #90s much has changed and we’re in the process of sorting websites, #socialmedia accounts and all that good stuff and we’d really appreciate your support by checking out our designs, sharing our posts……. oh and buying some dammed fine gear!!!
Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we’ll show where the brand has come from and where its going!! LIKES
Living in Darkness's blend of hardcore punk and surf rock can only be perfected by Agent Orange. Their influence on later hardcore bands can be noticed through their rough vocals and early skate punk sound.
Its lead single Bloodstains is a punk favorite among lovers of screaming vocals and choppy guitar riffs. The following tracks however (Too Young to Die and Everything Turns Grey), are just as strong and melodic as their predecessor. Their rough cover of Dick Dale's Miserlou displays more of a skate punk sound, which makes for a great listen.
The vocal performances behind tracks like No Such Thing, The Last Goodbye, and A Cry for Help in a World Gone Mad, add so much more character and energy to the tracks, its simplicity makes the album seem easy to sing, but Mike Palm's vocal range really make Living in Darkness a cult classic. Bloodstains (Darkness Version) is a harder, alternative take on their lead single, but doesn't seem to be as catchy or memorable as the original, still a fun track however.
Agent Orange's take on punk music expanded the genre for the better, and Living in Darkness is a great album for anyone who wants to slowly get into hardcore punk.
Favorite Songs: Bloodstains, Too Young to Die, No Such Thing
