CHIMPS ON DEATH ROW

(This article is from print publication in INCheshire magazine and Prestbury Living magazines' June 2015 issues as part of my "Cheshire Rocks" article.

Crewe band, Chimps on Death Row, are as you would expect from the name, not a pop boy band!

They are a Metal Rock outfit and consist of Bidder Jones (lead vocals/rhythm and lead guitar), Howie Tonge (bass guitar), Nik Thomas (lead and rhythm guitar and backing vocals) and Pete Mehlmann (drums and percussion).

The band’s sound can only be described as mixed rock.  Sometimes there is an influence of heavy metal Iron Maiden, then you could hear grunge rock Pearl Jam which then leads to Guns N’ Roses or Aerosmith!

They are an original rock band but they do play covers from time to time such as AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” and Judas Priest’s “Living After Midnight”.

My favourite tracks are “Fly Away” and “Find Me”, you can find these and more on YouTube, Soundcloud and Reverbnation and the Facebook page.
