Bio

Thunderous pop doom Gigs at at myspace.com/chaingangpower DO IT "Taking the lead from the darker spectrum of '70s punk, CHAINGANG straddle the line between indie and punk, much like their contemporaries Die! Die! Die! and Young and Restless, though they do it with a slight touch of morosity; almost Nick Cave in its darkness" - Who The Hell "Oh boy, help me regain my balance. CHAINGANG's Get Off My Stage is the sort of song you just want to spin around and around to — endlessly, mindlessly..." - Lost At E Minor "Sounds like the spastic, brash bar band rock that was Joan Jett or the Runaways mixed with the tribal delight of Siouxsie & the Banshees... Gothic Blondie. I dunno. It's rad, it's rockin', it's flailing down the streets with pants down, it's hooting and hollering, kicking and screaming. Let me go and bang my head to this stuff - maybe you all should follow suit" - Bibabidi "A lively bunch to say the least. Their music throbs with energy, dark energy - from the pounding drums, growling guitars and murmuring bass line, down to the fantastic vocal antics by singer Hayley. A bit of pop, 70's punk and some Gothic rock all mixed into one - these guys are sure to speed up your heart rate quite a bit. Just listen to the brilliant 'Get Off My Stage', and you'll know exactly what I mean" - Rock Sellout

Love the jerky energy of this song, "feeling Ker-raazee" demands attention from you and rightly so. If you're feeling a bit ho-hum, a bit flat, this one should rattle the cage for you!

Still raw, but am keen to hear some more of their stuff based on this rough recording. The singer could become annoying if she sings like this in every song though.
