Keep On Going

October 1, 2008

Not ones to sit around and use their laurels for cushions, The Chap have swiftly followed up the release of their highly applauded album Mega Breakfast with a new mini album, entitled Builders Blend, and comprised of various remixes, cover versions oddities and new material. It was released yesterday in digital format and can be found on emusic and itunes.

To toast this fine news, various members of the band took turns in compiling a suitably oddball mix that segues nicely between among other things: lounge jazz odes to champagne; 80s stadium rock; glam rock; self penned Beck remixes; blues and glorious Moroder synth workouts.
