Product Description

BBC Review

Riff monsters they may be, but Part Chimp have often resembled a rather benign kind of beast. Sure, their ungodly speaker-stacks are fit to rend the ground asunder, resonating on a level that somehow unites the earthly and the cosmic. Yet maybe it’s some combination of this south London-based band’s prehistoric status (all of them having been dragging bass amps up steep flights of stairs for some 15 or so years now) and their rather slack work rate that gives this impression: that of a potentially fearsome if somewhat content creature ambling along at its own pace, and dealing with malice and wrath only when it can absolutely be bothered.

Nonetheless, Thriller, their third album in nine years of blown cones and howling tinnitus, is proof positive that this animal packs both a mighty and a graceful punch when such a moment arrives. For the uninitiated, the brawny rumble of these nine tracks fall somewhere between the moody clangour of 80s Sonic Youth and the behemoth-mighty ballast of Melvins. What’s more, Part Chimp’s in-the-red attack resonates on a level of intensity that rather belies a scruffy bunch that can’t be bothered to name their tracks any more poetically than Trad and ffffff. Moreover, it would seem that there’s a part of this Chimp’s heart that will forever will be in the Camden Falcon somewhere in the early 90s, back in the days way before indie rock mysteriously went glamorous, when the immediate landscape was a torrid sea of long-sleeved tees, lank locks and beer-flecked Converse.

Yet with new bassist Tracy Bellaries, formerly of underrated metropolitan malcontents Ikara Colt, adding a hitherto unforeseen level of glamour to the proceedings, the primitive future of Part Chimp is looking healthier, and their anti-evolutionary stance more compelling than ever. Thriller’s skewed and gut-level punishment is evidence enough that scuzzbags of a certain stripe need not look across the Atlantic to the like of Big Business and Harvey Milk for their over-amped thrills. And, what‘s more, that sometimes being a perpetual underachiever is where it’s at. --Jimmy Martin

4.0 out of 5 stars Play it Loud 19 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Part Chimp are on Mogawai's Rock Action label & this is yet another fine album by the band. Took me a few listens to get really into this but it's quality. There's a touch of Black Sabbath about them with a hint of Mudhoney.

Live they are loud - enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a thriller 29 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you like crunching guitars and a dark moody sound to your music this is for you, not instantly likeable as it takes a few listens, but once it gets inside your head it will stay with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars great lp 23 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
if you are a heterosexual man who likes his music ballsy, raw and provocative then this is the album for you. If you are not a heterosexual man or a woman then don't bother with this lp you'll find it too loud, offensive and discordant for your taste you should stick to Peter Andre, Sylvester and Jane McDonald who specifically set out to cater to your needs.
