Artist: Chain & the Gang
Title: Down With Liberty...Up With Chains!
Label: K. Records
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Ian Suetonius (Make Up, Nation of Ulysses, Weird War) and his band have created sing alongs on this record; a call and response in the tradition of gospel tunes, work favorites, and the girl groups and vocal aggregates that once dotted the corners of the Mid-Atlantic states. This record is simple and profound, the way a pebble on the beach is. There are no song cycles, sample beats, sequencers, or baby pictures of the artist as a tot. Suetonius's "career has been a studied attempt to advance the history of punk rock, using influences as tools to build with rather than styles to flaunt and discard" - the Wire.
