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.

You can listen to the new single right here.

Chain & The Gang have released five uncompromising records, each one a brilliant tossed off sketchbook of insolence and provocation: Down with Liberty … Up With Chains!’, ‘Music’s Not For Everyone’, ‘in Cool Blood’, ‘Minimum Rock ’n’ Roll’, and ‘Experimental Music’.

You got them or always meant to get them. Now: you don’t have to! Now you only need one.

This is it: Chain & The Gang ‘Best Of… Crime Rock’, on In The Red Recordings.

They just recorded it. It’s easily the best record, with the most passion, the most accuracy, the most cunning, the most vigor.

Every song on these records is a classic, each lyric an anthem. The tunes are simplistic to the point of parody; call and response rhythm chants which infiltrate the consciousness and leave the listener transformed forever.

Each group member is a star. But together they’re something greater than the parts. An irresistible combo that provides the best hope for the future and the only answer to the embarrassing slime pit called “culture” nowadays.

‘Best Of… Crime Rock’ will be coming to you soon, in the meantime don’t you dare miss Chain & The Gang at their debut Australian shows.
