Recorded on his own, at home in Wuppertal, Germany, Tom Diabo's DARK STAR spans the years 1979 – 1986 when Tom was diagnosed with a brain tumor and recuperating. Tragically, the cancer returned and he passed away in 1986 leaving behind the collection of songs. Recorded on a 2-track using economic means, such as bouncing-down and recording vocals with guitars simultaneously, it’s a primitive portrait of an artist grappling with a renewed sense of life and the ever-looming reality of death.
