RIYL: Frank Zappa, Can

Label: Greenway Records

Indianapolis eccentric Ryan Perkins has been known to incinerate cerebellums during his live show, but he’s taken time out of that endeavor to cut a 45 for all you daring far-outers.  Similar to the madkraut monstrosity known to the world as Can, Chives is able to unearth the groove in his heaping pile of strange.  Beneath the experimental jazz interludes and the hypnotic vocal chant is a damn good bass lick, and that bad boy just might propel you to dance under the right circumstances.  You could call it post punk, you could call it weirdo funk, but for now…I’m just gonna call it Chives.  Check out the first single on Soundcloud HERE.

Per usual, Greenway Records has 100 gourmet copies on ‘bloody bruised’ splatter vinyl for $12, and these will come with an alternative screenprinted cover.  For $8, grab the white vinyl version that’s  limited to 200 copies or just do away with the decision process entirely and grab them both in a bundle.  All of these options await you after the ‘buy’ link.
