"After recording the Egg Hunt songs in England, Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson (who had also played together in Minor Threat and Teen Idles) considered forming a new band. They played with Geoff Turner and Steve Niles of the recently disbanded Gray Matter. This line-up never got off the ground and Ian decided to leave and eventually formed Fugazi. The others carried on, and soon added another Gray Matter member, Mark Haggerty, and this line-up would become Three. Meanwhile, Steve had started his own comic book company, Arcane Comix, which he operated out of the apartment that he shared with Geoff on Swann Street in the Dupont Circle area of DC. It was this street that served as inspiration for the song of the same name, and the line 'these berries smell like shit' referred to the small fruits that dropped to the sidewalks from the Ginkgo trees on the block. Three did a few short tours, and recorded at Geoff's home studio as well as Inner Ear. Things were looking up for them, but the band self-destructed shortly before releasing Dark Days Coming in November 1989. The 12" LP featured songs from the Inner Ear recording while the CD also included 11 extra tracks from the band's home recordings. Shortly after the demise of Three, Geoff, Mark and Steve joined again with Dante Ferrando and reunited Gray Matter. Several of the Three demos included on the 'extra tracks' later surfaced on Gray Matter's album, Thog. Re-mastered from original tapes. Features newly updated artwork."
