London-based band The Chap have been doing the damn thing for almost 20 years now. With around 23 releases under their belt, most of which have appeared on their home of Lo Recordings, over the years they've perfected a witty and playful sound that sets them apart from the swathes of serious chin strokers.
They're now readying their seventh album, 'Digital Technology', for release - which covers everything from melancholy pop to techno, disco and synth-pop.
Now, we wouldn't say The Chap are a group you'd neccesarily associate with violence, but they've dug deep for selections that scream subtle violence and whisper "smash the system"...
Ahh, violence. It's not very nice, and we're not very good at it. We nearly called out last album Wusses Strike Back. But we didn't. We're tried to explore all the interesting little corners of violence in music here, from the straightforward to the obscure. Anyone for a violent hug?

I used to drive around the suburbs as an angry young man in my 2CV listening to this at maximum volume. Young people always know how to smash the system.
