http://nimchimpsky.bandcamp.com I remember where I was when I first heard Nim Chimpsky, but where were you? You were standing in the middle of a dismal age, that's where. Clowns to the left of you, jokers to the right, apocalyptic thunderclouds in the East and an Armando Ianucci hallucination in the West. And then there's Nim Chimpsky, arms aloft, one of them playing distorted disco beats from a knackered bunch of samplers, the other shouting and playing a guitar with like three strings. A band might not save the world but they might save some lives. What is there to say? They're this duo from a city in the Midlands I don't know squat about. They're electro without being soulless. They're righteous without being preachy. They're funny without being a joke. Plus they're as fluid as liquid mercury. With every record, every gig, they shape-shift into another unpredictable incarnation. I can't wait to see what these cats do next and if you keep waiting, you'll miss out. Buy their stuff on Bandcamp. Put them on every gig. Play them on the radio. Celebrate their phenomenal music in an era where we've got precious little to celebrate. It's two minutes to midnight. Enjoy the magic before we all become pumpkins.
