((Part Chimp)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Part Chimp are like fried Mars bars. You know they are probably bad for you, but they're just so good! Think metal mixed with sludge-rock mixed with sonic garage rock.

This band puts on legendary live shows. Their gigs are extremely, extremely LOUD. I saw them a couple years ago open up for Mogwai (whose label, Rock Action, put out Part Chimp's first album) at Warsaw, and I almost cried on my perogi from the pain pulsating through my ears. But of course it goes without saying that I'll be first in line to see them again.

Since they're from the U.K. and hardly ever seem to tour the States, the chance to catch them is fleeting at best. Dynamic distortion and decibel destruction reigns. If you don't bring earplugs to this, you might as well beg to be deaf.
