my only goal is to bring you the coolest tracks before you hear about them from the big mags. Today this is cool shit, wicked guitar riffs, nice backbeat and vocals to hook you in, give a listen…
Chain & The Gang, the latest creative vehicle for Washington DC activist Mr. Ian Sveninonius, ex-The Make Up/ Nation Of Ulysses and a man described by fellow Washington native Henry Rollins as “a genius” have just released ‘Certain Kinds Of Trash’ the new single taken from their forthcoming ‘Best Of… Crime Rock’’ LP.
Formed in 2009, Chain & The Gang are different than the rest. You won’t see their name on the garbage heap of hyped bands pushed by paid-off web-zine tastemakers. They’re not “jingle-core,” tattooed onto your subconscious via Madison Avenue mind-control ad campaigns. They’re not middle brow NPR indie listening for Prius owning cubicle rockers or a tiresome teenage retread of ‘90s surrender sludge.
No. Chain & The Gang are singular, terrifying, unparalleled. Not only the most ferocious live combo ever witnessed but also the world’s only anti-liberty rock ’n’ roll group. Their motto? “Down with Liberty… Up with Chains!”
Chain & The Gang don’t care about grades, likes, traffic or hits. They don’t petition publicists for goofy hype or pander to the corrupt institutions who molest rock ’n’ roll and use it as their plaything. Chain & Co. don’t play that game. They want total destruction of the insipid rock ’n’ roll status quo and the foul system it purports to offer relief from –- but in fact keeps afloat.
