DARLING Lookin' Kinda Rock 'n' Rolled / Dead End Kids (Charisma 1978)
French issue in nice coloured vinyl of Darling's first single. They were a British band born from the ashes of Slack Alice, they released three singles and one LP all on Charisma Records. Both sides of the single are a good mix of glam and powerpop with a touch of hard rock for good measure.
