Ian Svenonius is the man behind this collaborative band Chain and the Gang, which includes musicians and artists from various bands such as The Gossip, Vivian Girls and Finally Punk. It’s an odd sort of group, and some of these songs show that, with carefree vocals and a rough edge to the music, almost bordering on out of tune instruments and skill-less percussion.
Nevertheless, there are a few gems on this album, including this tune “Free Will,” which is an upbeat garage rocker. It’s a cool sound, just as the album title, In Cool Blood suggests.
Check out the title track of the album if you want to hear an even more “out-there” rock tune from Chain and the Gang.
