Arrows to the Head
SST Records. Chuck Dukowski sans Black Flag.
This was Wurm's first 7-inch released in 1982; around the same time, Unicorn Records was preventing Black Flag from releasing any records due to some legal contractual dispute. It's not surprising that Chuck decided to do some stuff of his own, particularly since Wurm was playing at the Church regularly with Black Flag's previous incarnation, Panic, before punk rock started spewing itself across Hermosa Beach.
Chuck decided to drop out of the band at the time that My War was being recorded and Greg Ginn ended up playing bass in the studio instead, using the pseudonym Dale Nixon. Chuck was still involved with the band at this time but only as a manager and occasionally doing guest back up vocals on the Slip It In album.
