Made up of musicians from across the consistently
thriving and criminally overlooked UK hardcore scene
(featuring The Chisel, Big Cheese and more), West
London five-piece 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 revitalised.

Through sheer force of strength, their 2020 debut
album ‘Speed Kills’ pummelled its way out of the local
hardcore scene and across the Atlantic, where it was
met with a landslide of critical acclaim from the likes of
Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.

“A record that in some ways has its core spirit
somewhere in the early 80’s but very much in the now”
- Steve Lamacq

“Punk’s most vital new band” - The Guardian

"The scene’s clear front-runners” - NME
