Artist details

Chain & The Gang

Led by the remarkable Ian Svenonius, prime mover behind two of the most essential bands of our time, Nation Of Ulysses and The Make-Up, and author of two books, The Psychic Soviet and Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group, not to mention online talk show host and auteur filmmaker, Chain And the Gang deal in a new genre called CRIME ROCK that updates rock n roll, blues, and gospel music or vocal quartets from the late 50s /early 60s for the discerning few.

As Ian himself puts it: “If asked about it by a prospective fan, I would say "Watch out; it might hurt your feelings." Or "Be careful … there's no telling what might happen if you put it in your ear." Why? Because Chain & The Gang isn't for everyone. It's not designed for the victims of Ikea who rely on robots to choose their background muzak. But it can also prove to be addictive and has some disturbing side effects.“
