Chancery Blame and the Gadjo Club: Tokyo/Where Is My Mind (single)

~ Friday, 3 September 2010
This double a sided single from the London based six piece is like a breath of fresh air. The lead track Tokyo is a heady mix of Jazz, Gypsy Folk and Punk played with a considerable amount of energy while Where Is My Mind is a cover of The Pixies track that is as downbeat as the original and no less beguiling.

Front man Phillip Granell's vocals are reminiscent of a young Nick Cave while their sound bares comparison with the likes of Les Négresses Vertes, Gogol Bordello or a Parisian Pogues, yet they still manage to make music that sounds unique and fresh.

As a taster for their forthcoming debut album Come On In, this is a mouthwatering appetiser.
