Since the squat-rock Camden lurch days of 'Milk' and the skewed Hackney krautrock of 'Quickspace', through to the smooth melodic shadows of Walthamstow's 'Dark Captain', Chin Keeler has been in the background, hiding behind the drums and the grooves. Now he has stepped into the light for his solo project 'Chin of Britain', revealing songs and ideas that have been gestating for some years. Self-recorded on an out-of-date mini-mac, with few recording skills and little equipment, the resulting album is an example of what you can make out of f**k all. No recording studio, no band, no problem. Chin channels all the imaginary members of the band and plays all the roles.
The debut album 'Chin of Britain' takes inspiration and influence from all of god's great genres, ploughing its own idiosyncratic furrow through blistering fields of noise and melody. The songs reel you in with pop hooks and driving grooves then swiftly slather you in heavy layers of guitar and choral vocals. There is lyrical honesty and vivid imagery in abundance, leading you on a journey to hidden and unexpected destinations. It's nothing less than a mind-expanding cosmic guitar journey.
