Chain and The Gang
Cry, Cry, Cry (DBN119)
While recording their first album at Dub Narcotic Studio, Down with Liberty…Up with Chains! [KLP203], Chain & The Gang had so many good, extra songs and radical ideas, it became obvious that it would spill over onto a Dub Narcotic Disco Plate 7” single; Chain (aka Ian Svenonius) croons on “Cry, Cry, Cry (Over You)” – culling inspiration from background vocals by Sixx (The Vibrarians), and a stinging piano solo by Brian Weber (Dub Narcotic Sound System). Extra strong, no cream, in a word: classic. On the other side, Selector Dub Narcotic (aka Calvin Johnson) added his own melodica flourishes, and voila! you’ve got the brand new Chain & The Gang 45 rpm record. A logical link from Liberty to the Chain & The Gang long-player, Music’s Not For Everyone [KLP220].
