Music's Not For Everyone

Many people have compiled a home library of records, compact discs, ticket stubs or concert set lists, but Chain & The Gang might not be included in all of them. Their delightful racket isn't for everyone. Is it for anyone? Possibly. Music's Not For Everyone is their follow-up long-player to Down With Liberty¦ Up With Chains! and it is pithy and succinct. Led by Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, Make Up, Weird War etc), it features roaring organ solos, shredding guitar, and plomping percussion by an all star cast (Fred Thomas, Arrington de Dionyso, Brian Weber) complete with call and response vocals by fabulous back-up singers such as Veronica Ortuo, Sara Pedal and Tara Jane ONeil. Some will play this Music at pool parties, proms and pizzerias because there's a hard-edged dance groove. It sounds real "earthy." Others might choose "Not Good Enough" to be the anthem for their Football Team because it really psyches out the competition. Chain & the Gang knows they have a long way to go before they're fully accepted. But they have a strategy: maybe if someone heard their music, they would like it.
