Feel Presents are excited to announce the debut Australian tour for righteous punk-funk ’n soul group Chain and The Gang, the brainchild of Washington DC’s most alert citizen, Mr. Ian Svenonious.
"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!”
Svenonious, the sonic-architect behind socio-political minded groups The Make Up, Nation Of Ulysses, Weird War (and others) and one of the worlds GREAT front men formed Chain and The Gang in 2009. Since that time Chain … have released four (4) must have albums including 2014’s Minimum Rock ’n’ Roll, a 31 minute slab of garage-funk with a punk heart and a social awareness that has aspirations beyond the genre – any genre!
"Chain & the Gang don’t care about grades, likes, traffic or hits. They don’t petition goofy publicists for 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.”
Alongside vocalist and chief provocateur Svenonious, are bassist, synthesist and composer Anna Nasty and guitarist Francy Graham while Svenonius himself, is also a filmmaker, a dancer, a youtube host and a writer with his author credit appearing on the books “The Psychic Soviet” and “Supernatural Strategies”. Individually these members are scintillating 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.
