A new take on 60`s garage, but at the same time, could be a lost Knickerbockers album. What makes this unique is it`s contemporary awareness of melody and a vocalist who sounds like Dave Edmunds. Of course, the requisite vintage instruments are used alongside the warm fuzz, but The Chains superb songwriting is what sets it apart. Clap your hands and shout to the music of The Chains. An incredible debut. Echoing the finest moments of Jordan/Wilson era Flamin` Groovies with hints of Rockpile and primo 60s R&B hounds like the Pretties or Stones, and armed with more than enough sonic propellant to keep the garage-niks creaming in their hipsters, this North of the 49th five-piece are - without a single doubt in my mind - gonna be making the top of anybody with any sense`s must have and top-ten lists this year. And to top it all off the production is absolutely first rate. Fire, skill and the tunes to back it up! Hey, and when these guys tackle a classic like Eddie Cochran`s "Nervous Breakdown" they truly make it their own. Absolutely brilliant. 9.5/10"-London Mirror.
