Back On The Chaingang

Ian Svenonius was a member of Marxist rock 'n' soul testifiers Nation Of Ulysses, who had a 12 point plan to destroy the youth of America from within or something. Good fun. He was also the front man of Make Up, and most recently Chain And The Gang. This song, Deathbed Confession, is a good 'un- deep and heavy, tongue in cheek, groovy and ever-so-slightly odd. Svenonius confesses to all sorts of things, including killing JFK 'for the CIA' and Malcolm X 'for Federal Express' and faking the moonlandings. Well worth a few minutes of your Saturday evening. Brown suit and tank top- yes or no?

That's really good. I consider myself a fan of Ian Svenonius but struggle to keep up, I only heard about Chain and the Gang about a month ago. I thought we were still on Felt Letters.

Brown suit and tank top? I don't see why not.

He's done so much different stuff I only dip my toes in every now and then, but usually like what he does. I agree about the clobber.
