Profile British rock outfit Keep it Dark released “1St Down & Ten” back in 1986. This release has been kept in the dark as far as the CD format is concerned for over 20 years but in 2010 Wounded Bird Records sheds some light on the situation with the world compact disc debut of “1st Down & Ten”. The band play a mixture of of pop and rock with a kind of AOR attitude tunes. The single “Dreamer” that also shot as a video being in the top 30 most played rock tracks on American Radio in the summer of 1986. They toured with Mike and the Mechanics, Genesis, Marillion and Talk Talk, but unfortunately they split-up a year later.
