Chubby And The Gang - The Mutt's Nuts CD/LP/DLX LP
West London five-piece Chubby and the Gang are balanced by two energies on "The Mutt's Nuts": a casual 'fuck it' on one side, an active 'fuck off' on the other.
For every moment of punk imperfection, there's an intricate flurry of detail. For every enraged statement about modern life as war, there's a lyric like 'Hello heartbreak, my old friend' that catches you off guard.
Made up of musicians from across the consistently thriving and criminally overlooked UK hardcore scene (ft. The Chisel, Big Cheese and more), Chubby and the Gang marinate its characteristic speed and sick-of-it-all energy in a mixture of 50s pop sounds. The result is a prickly take on the older, more melodic genres that punk derives from, chewing them up and spitting them out into something mangled but revitalized.
