Chain Gang of 1974

If the whole world is going to hell in a hand basket you might as well be dancing, right? Though it may seem the modern equivalent of fiddling while Rome burns, taking an evening off from the daily deluge of negative information to disconnect from your logical self, paint your eyes and let your pelvis do the thinking may be just the thing your soul needs. The soundtrack for this disco of the damned? A hybrid of dark 80s wave, early 90s industrial, turn of the century electro rock (a la the Electric Six) filtered through the ears of kids young enough to be obsessed with Justice and LCD Soundsystem—an exact description of Denver’s Chain Gang of 1974. With Jamaica, MK Speed Dial. MA'CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
