The morning after Chain & the Gang finished their West Coast tour with a boffo show at Northern (Downtown Olympia) featuring the Shivas and local legends Morgan & the Organ Donors (read all about it at this K WEBLOG POST), they entered the Dub Narcotic Studio to get some fresh ideas to tape, recording with Calvin Johnson and Sam Gray and the classic TEAC A-3340S 1/4″ four-track deck:

First off, a story conference to discuss which of their many splendored ideas they would explore in the little time available while residing in Olympia (see above photog of Ian “Chain” Svenonius and Gang guitarist Francy). Action, that is what the situation called for, and the assorted Gang members immediately heeded this call. Witness bassist Laurie and drummer Madd stepping to it:

  • RK

    New CD coming (hopefully) soon??

    • Calvin

      Thanks for asking! A new album would be glorious, however Chain & the Gang were in Dub Narcotic Studio for only one day, enough time to record two songs. They’ll have to come back soon and lay down some more boss beats!
