The Soviet & USA nuclear arms escalation, conflict in the Middle East, the IRA bombing Britain, war in the Falklands, Dundee FC being relegated - yes there definitely was a lot of end of the world gloom & doom around at the start of the 80's!
Here's local band, Atomic Grape, singing about those troubled times and warning us that we're all gonna DIE!!!!
Ah well, at least some of us managed to survive to tell the tale - but hang on, there seems to be one obvious casualty - Atomic Grape themselves - what happened to them?
Whatever it was, this bunch managed to evade my music radar back then and so now I don't know anything about them.
The singer sounds very young, so much so that I guess they might be a school band, but the competent guitar playing may ruin my theory!
Anyway, the track called "Armageddon" is from around 1982 and is a melodic rock guitar tune, kind of in the Grateful Dead/Wishbone Ash territory.
If you have any details to pass on about the band, feel free to drop them into the comments so as those of us who made it and are grateful to still be alive, can read your reports.
