Electro Post-Punk Eccentrics CHUM Strike With Debut Album ‘METAPHYSICAL’

Standout longplayers

12 April 2023

Band: CHUM
Who: 5 DIY psych/noise
rockers from London.

“Part crystal healing ceremony, part self-help seminar, part
just-taken-thebrown-acid; we’re never quite sure of where
we might end up.”

Order info here.

TUTV: Chum play around with post-prog-synth-rock (Casual Body / Social Animal),
they blow your mind with pounding bangers (Beefcake Doctrine / Nu Age / Gold Star)
and schizo strokes (Music Providence / Humanities) and they finish with a sonically deformed and bizzaro helter-skelter called Annul.

Want references? The unpredictable kookiness of The Residents, the psychedelic
post-punk turbulence of Killing Joke, and yes, the symphonic bombast of Emerson
Lake & Palmer
all mixed up and cranked up in a far-out 8-track debut album with
weird stories.

Video/clip for TUTV’s favourite track,
the stunning sledgehammer Beefcake Doctrine.

Buy/stream album here.
