An awesome 7" single that clearly should've been a double A side, both songs ridiculously catchy in different ways, (I've Got) Privilege is a cocky, funky beast of a tune, played at half pace in the coolest manner ever. Detroit Music is better still, stupidly fine garage which would fit perfectly on one of the Nuggets compilation and shows former Kindercore band the Agenda how it should have been done, definately one of the singles of the years and a track that i'll be playing again and again.
Chain and The Gang feature Ian Svenonius of Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Weird War and Siesta records Dave Candy.
Spoiler : What KRecords Said:
Have you heard? Grandma's doing the bird to the latest rock-breaking teen sensation, the wig-flipping Chain & the Gang. "(I've Got) Privilege” is the latest volume in our International Pop Underground series of 7” 45 rpm records. Young and old alike love the beat, the cranked riffs, just the overall vibe! You may, too, as soon as this package slides under your door. Ian Svenonius and chums have really come up with a winner of a dance task master, a real double-A side plate. Chain (o.k., Ian) croons on the first side; espousing the joys of being part of the privileged class. Then he gets real confused about the relationship between cars and music (isn’t it obvious?) on "Detroit Music ." "(I've Got) Privilege” was recorded by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio here in Olympia, Wash. Breaking all the chains, in the best possible way.
