The Chapman Family.

13 04 2012

A couple of years ago, me and some chums had the honour of meeting The Chapman Family. I’d say interview but it was honestly just like sitting with a couple of chums in your living room discussing life and err…Girls Aloud (Call The Shots is a bloody good pop song.)

I love The Chapman Family because of many reasons. I think Kingsley is an AMAZING front-man, they covered Morrissey and it was incredible, they’re Northern and best of all? They make honest music that is dark and at the same time enlightening. Their debut record, Burn Your Town was one of the most slept on records from last year. I’m keeping my rage to myself about that. Because if I star I really won’t stop.

ANYWAY.

Rage aside, they’ve just put a new video up for This English Life which is taken from their new EP, Cruel Britannia.

The Chapman Family are probably saviours, let’s be honest. They will tell you how fucked up it all is- even if you are foolishly willing to turn a blind eye. Why you’d want to, I have no idea. I remember seeing them live and Kingsley was pretty much strangling himself on stage with the mic chord. I knew right there that I was about to love this band with all I have. It’s been a few years, and the love is still there.

You can catch the band live real soon. Please go. Just go. Go and love life. Love REAL music with intense passion, darkness and heart :
