    CHAIN AND THE GANG

    Down With Liberty... Up With Chains!

    [engl] 
    The 2009 debut album from the chain gang led by Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Weird War) is a masterpiece of primitivism. From dazzling set pieces of R&B and rock'n'roll, the band forms highly melodic songs full of call-and-response chants ("What Is A Dollar"), or invites you to take a walk through the cemetery ("Cemetry Map"), which sounds so spooky as if voodoo master Dr. John had thought it up. Sometimes Svenonius just grabs a wooden guitar to make fun of conspiracy theories like in "Deathbed Confessions": "I faked the moon landing, I saved Hitler's brain. Yeah, it's in Argentina but it controls the USA." Calvin Johnson produced the album at his Dub Narcotic studio and also did a bit of background vocals. The beat lurches and sways as confidently and surely as an old sea dog's gait in a breeze of doppelkorn. The somewhat odd album title is explained by the always conceptually thinking singer as follows: "Everywhere freedom goes, it leaves a path of destruction. Fast food, bad architecture, materialism, unbridled greed, destroyed environment, imperial conquests, class struggle; combined, these phenomena are seemingly synonymous with freedom." When big words often hide only capitalist greed and imperialist war, Svenonius & Co.

    CHAIN AND THE GANG

    In Cool Blood

    Das dritte, 2012 erschienene Album von Chain & The Gang besitzt einen attraktiven Joker: Katie Alice Greer – die charismatische Sängerin der Priests übernimmt in allen Songs die zweite Stimme. Und egal ob sie nur ein spitzes „Yeah!“ herausstößt, oder wie in „Free Will“ den Song komplett übernimmt – ihre Präsenz steht spürbar im Raum. „In Cool Blood“ ist so eine Art Bonnie-&-Clyde-, oder Nancy-&-Lee-Album geworden: abenteuerlich, sexy und ziemlich von sich selbst überzeugt. Die Balance zwischen den beiden unterschiedlichen Stimmen ist perfekt austariert, die Songs sind lässig, aber auf den Punkt. Es geht diesmal weniger gegen den Kapitalismus und mehr um das Ausleben persönlicher Freiheit. „Heavy Breathing“, feiert die Freuden des nächtlichen Telefon-Sex; „Free Will“ singt Greer so rotzig selbstbewusst, als habe sie einem übergriffigen Typen soeben einen schmerzhaften Tritt in die Weichteile verpasst: „I don‘t believe in free will. I just do what I feel, that is the deal, I don‘t believe in free will“. Kenner hören da sicher auch Anklänge an die Delmonas oder Holly Golightly. Es ist schwer, diese Mischung aus lauerndem Garagen-Rock und ironischen Posen und Bekenntnissen nicht zu mögen. Chain & The Gang haben sich hiermit ihre eigene Welt erschaffen, eine heftig brodelnde Petrischale voller Songs und Storys, die Vergangenheit und Zukunft des Rock‘n‘Roll zusammenführt.

    CHAIN AND THE GANG

    Music's Not For Everyone

    [engl] Released in 2011, Chain & The Gang's second album, like its predecessor, was once again produced by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio. The lineup is also mostly the same, with the small difference that there are now five background singers who answer (in different songs) the calls of Ian Svenonius: Tara Jane O'Neil, Veronica Ortuño, Susanna Patten, Sarah Pedal and Katy Davidson. "Why Not" challenges everyday common sense and the established rules to an energetic blues shuffle. "Detroit Music" sounds like dirty jabs and the Dirtbombs, "Detroit Music II" plays the ball on, towards a heavy monster jam. Brilliant! The title track is then again in a class of its own: to psychedelic laments familiar from the Stooges' "We Will Fail," Svenonius mocks the tastes of the naïve "I actually listen to everything" consumer: "I know you wanna share. But don't!" he spits contemptuously at their feet. In the era of Spotify & Co., Svenonius accepts the accusation of snobbery: "Does a moth know a flame, just because it's drawn to it? "Svenonius sells it all with conviction and a devilish twinkle in his eye. He means what he says, and also knows how absurd it all is. These 12 tracks serve as a bombastic backdrop for Svenonius' treatises on living the life of an anti-capitalist svengali; they're a guerrilla garage rock manifesto imbued with fever, fervour and soul." - The Quietus
