Anti-authoritarian Marxist. Provocateur. The Sassiest Boy in America. Ian Svenonius has been called a lot of things over his now close to three decade career.

His current combo, Chain & the Gang, are actually more like an evolving and fluid collective than a static rock-n-roll line, have a new record out. I got it in my hands last night and on my turntable not too long after. Recorded live to 4 track in Ann Arbor, MI. (and featuring one of my favorite Detroit rock-n-rollers ever, Mr. Dan Kroha of the Gories on guitar), it's a groovy affair of dissidence.

What are you listening to tonight?

Can you help us out?
