Escape-ism
Live at Third Man Records

Ian Svenonius - he of Chain And The Gang and The Nation Of Ulysses fame - has been busying himself with his Escape-ism project of late. It sounds pretty much exactly like what you'd imagine a Svenonius solo endeavour would sound like. Live At Third Man Records does a good job of capturing Escape-ism’s freakified Jonathan Richman thing.

Escape-ism
The Lost Record

Escape-ism is of course ex Make Up, Nation of Ulysses and professional irritant Ian Svenonious. With this latest project he has decided to make an album that could be considered a 'lost' record. However he doesn't want to go through the usual process 'lost' records have to endure such as poor initial sales, critical panning etc. No he's headed straight to the moment when they are rediscovered and reassessed.

Escape-ism
Introduction to Escape-ism

Like Jon Spencer, Ian Svenonius is one of the hardest working men in contemporary rock 'n' roll. Over the years he's amassed an awesome discography with The Nation Of Ulysses The Make-Up, Chain & the Gang, XYZ, Weird War etc. but hasn't stepped out on his own. Until Now. Here he is, but naked and armed with a guitar, drum box and cassette player.

Chain & The Gang
Live at Third Man Records

This is the first live document of Chain and the Gang the latest product of the world's most entertaining front man Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up etc). The album perfectly captures the soulful racketeering of his latest band and the raucous social/political commentary of his vocals.

Chain & The Gang
Experimental Music

Chain & the Gang is of course the latest musical trip of Ian Svenonius the idiot/genius behind such bands as the Make Up and Nation of Ulysees. The press release uses LOTS OF CAPITALISATION to highlight the importance of the man and claims that in one hundred years writers will still be trying to work out what this is all about. You've been warned. 

Chain & The Gang
Best of Crime Rock

Comparisons to across the landscape of garage indie will be made, but the fact is that Chain & The Gang have developed their very own technique. The Best of Crime Rock could showcase their stripped down fusion no better; satire, simplicity and consistently accurate.

Chain & the Gang
Never Been Properly Loved

Blue Coloured Vinyl 7" with Jukebox Hole. The new single form CHAIN AND THE GANG is the dancefloor smash “Never Been Properly Loved”, taken from their critically acclaimed new album MINIMUM ROCK N ROLL and due out on Fortuna POP! on 26 May. Featuring Katie Alice Greer of Priests and led by the Ian Svenonius, prime mover behind two of the most essential bands of our time, Nation Of Ulysses and The Make-Up, Chain And the Gang deal in a new genre called CRIME ROCK. Minimum Rock N Roll was recorded in Portland Oregon with Ian and Katie Alice on vocals, Brett playing the electric guitar, Chris on electric bass guitar, and Fiona driving the drum kit and then mixed down in DC by Brendan Canty. More minimal and more ferocious, more lean and more mean, Minimum Rock N Roll is Chain & the Gang looking for food, hungry and intent on devouring the known world, once they find its tender underbelly.
