The Brighton & Hove News Music Team are very excited to note that west London quintet Chubby And The Gang, will be bringing their wonderful noise to half a dozen specially selected record stores in celebration of their forthcoming ‘The Mutts Nuts’ album, which will be released on 27th August 2021 on Partisan Records.
‘The Mutts Nuts’ album needs to be purchased in order to gain entry to the special instore concerts. It is available to purchase in several formats and options including limited edition orange vinyl, deluxe vinyl edition (which has gatefold sleeve, 3D glasses and 20 page lyric book), CD, translucent red cassette, and download.
This tour will kick off with two dates in London on 27th and 28th August, followed by appearances in Bristol, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Nottingham and finally arriving at Resident music in Brighton on Sunday 5th September from 6pm.
Chubby And The Gang are fronted by Charlie Manning Walker (aka Chubby Charles) and backed by Tom ‘Razor’ Hardwick, Meg Brooks Mills, Ethan Stahl and Joe McMahon (aka the Gang), the band tell stories of modern London.
For every moment of punk imperfection, there’s an intricate flurry of detail. For every enraged statement about modern life as war, there’s a lyric like “Hello heartbreak, my old friend” that catches you off guard. Made up of musicians from across the consistently thriving and criminally overlooked UK hardcore scene (ft. The Chisel, Big Cheese and more), Chubby And The Gang marinate its characteristic speed and sick-of-it-all energy in a mixture of 50s pop sounds. The result is a prickly take on the older, more melodic genres that punk derives from, chewing them up and spitting them out into something mangled but revitalised.
‘The Mutts Nuts’ is the band’s second album, following on from their debut platter ‘Speed Kills‘ which came out last year.
‘The Mutts Nuts’ tracklisting reads:
‘It’s Me Who’ll Pay’
‘Coming Up Tough’
‘On The Meter’
‘Beat That Drum’
‘Take Me Home To London’
‘Life On The Bayou’
‘Someone’s Gunna Die’
‘Getting Beat Again (Eppu Normaali)’
