Watch a video for Project UNDARK's Radium Girls 2011

August 2012

Stream a video of the title track from Project UNDARK's recent album, a collaboration between Dieter Moebius, the vocalist Phew and Erika Kobayashi.

Project UNDARK's Radium Girls 2011 is an album about the history of radiation and radiation illness. The record is named after a case which occurred in New Jersey in the 1920s where five factory workers sued the US Radium Corporation. Women had been hired to cover watch dials with a paint called Undark which they were told was harmless, but actually contained radium. The women were poisoned when they licked their brushes, and painted their nails with the luminous paint.

Project UNDARK's Radium Girls 2011 is the subject of an article by Clive Bell in The Wire 342.
