Like most past due-’80s/early-’90s British thrash bands, Morecombe’s D.A.M. (brief for “Damage and Mayhem”) showed up too past due and bearing inadequate in the form of unique talent to contend with the best American and continental Western thrashers of your day — the majority of whom had been already shifting onto new noises by then anyhow. But, backtracking just a little, following a issuing a set of demos, D.A.M. vocalist Jason McLoughlin, guitarists Dave Pugh and John Bury, bassist Andy Elliot, and drummer Phil Bury had been signed by Sound and documented their 1990 debut recording, Human being Wreckage. Sporadic touring to get fellow Brits Toranaga and later on People in america Dark Angel and Nuclear Assault paved the street to album number 2, 1991’s Inside Out, but D.A.M. split up soon thereafter — partially because of Pugh’s becoming a member of folk-thrashers Skyclad.
