about

I came across the fascinating story of the Dark Harvest Commando whilst reading Ian Rankin’s excellent crime novel, “The Impossible Dead”. The Commando, a group of militant Scottish nationalists, demanded that the UK Government complete the long overdue rehabilitation of Gruinard Island, which had been rendered uninhabitable following tests of weaponized anthrax during World War 2. As a demonstration of their capability to re-inforce their demands, the Commando recovered and sent anthrax-contaminated soil from Gruinard Island to various UK government locations.

lyrics

Forty years have passed since you laid the island lifeless
In the night we slip ashore and gather earth and irony.
Now we have the weapons to challenge your indifference
So choose your reparations, or rapid education.

We are the Dark Harvest
We are the earth and sea,
We are the death angels
We are the memory:
We are the Dark Harvest Commando!
We are the Dark Harvest Commando!
We are the Dark Harvest Commando!
We are the Earth's vengeance come for you…
We've come for you.

The earth is sick, the soil's stained with this injustice!
We have come to balance the scales: as you reaped so shall we sow.
Anthrax is the weapon by which you will sicken
So choose your course of remedy or choose instead to die...

We are the Dark Harvest
We are the earth and sea,
We are the death angels
We are the memory:
We are the Dark Harvest Commando!
We are the Dark Harvest Commando!
We are the Dark Harvest Commando!
We are the Earth's vengeance come for you…
