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 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.

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.

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 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.
Do you spend much of your day inside? Because this album is well outside. Make Up really do not give a damn about your cubicled genres and boundaries, they just throw it all together on a whim. Sound Verite is weird and wonderful, but uncomfortable and catchier than a baseball glove. Features several Dub Narcotic folks, a sleeve referencing 'Forever Changes' and some full on soul-rockin' goodness.
