made waves in their hometown, circa the late '80s when this demo made it's way into the slipstream. Atlantic Records flirted with the band, but ultimately reneged on releasing anything by them.
Garnering comparisons to U2 and Tears For Fears, The Killing Field bore a similar sonic penchant that was actually more relative to The Alarm and mid-80s Simple Minds, paired with a lukewarm socially conscious slant, much in line with the aforementioned. Thing is though, the songs were pretty damn good, not to mention deftly performed. A independent full length album followed several years later, which you can investigate at Amazon and iTunes.
