Anyone hankering for follow-up material to Chain's outstanding debut 'Down with Liberty...Up With Chains' will be pleased to hear that he's crafted one of them there Dub Narcotic Disco Plate 7"s. This one takes the root of 'Down With Liberty''s opener 'Chain Gang Theme (I see)' and runs with it, adding new vocals and generally monkeying around with the original mix. It's a good one too, especially the B-side which also features the beautiful vocal tones of K main dude and Beat Happening frontman Calvin Johnson; he's the one who makes the dub plates I believe. He's a good lad.
6/10 Andy Customer review, 14th August 2014
Said best by the dudes at K Records, this single is “a logical link from ‘Down With Liberty…Up With Chains!’ to the forthcoming Chain and the Gang long-player ‘Music’s Not for Everyone.'” If you’ve already heard the first full length, then you’ll have no problem agreeing with that statement. Both cuts from this 7″ follow a nearly identical rhythm from the first track of the first album called “Chain Gang Theme (I See Progress)”. Although similar, the rest of the songs are drastically different – filling out with heavy piano solos, a murmuring but hilarious Ian Svenonius, and bluesy, twangin’ guitar licks that sound strangely familiar.
The B-side features Calvin Johnson (aka Selector Dub Narcotic), who lends his voice to the song along with Svenonius. Johnson can be heard from beginning to end, and his vocal efforts are certainly worth laughing about. His crooning lyrics about playing Twister (“Left foot to blue; right hand on green”) will definitely catch you off guard, and we suggest you pay attention to his lyrical nonsense. These guys are an awesome pair, and they make for and interesting AND hilarious listen, which is definitely not an everyday pairing when it comes to music.
It’s hard to say whether this was done with serious intentions or if they were simply messing around for fun, but either way the end result is pretty rad, and it definitely does it’s job of making you curious for the new full length – to which we say “BRING IT ON!!!”
