Following the sold out 7" (released by Static Shock Records in the UK and Goner Records in the US, SSR 070EP) and a run of UK shows with Sheer Mag, Chubby & The Gang are here with their debut LP, Speed Kills. Wall-to-wall speedy punk bordering on the recklessness of Motorhead, the single mindedness of The Kids, the streetwise panache of Cockney Rejects, and the occasional curveball pasted in to keep everyone surprised. This LP is timeless vernacular perfection peppered with misleadingly obvious displays of brashness aching their way into the hallways of surprising musical channels. "Can't Tell Me Nothing" could have been on a Rip Off Records 7" from 20 years ago, "Trouble" -- a love song to Chubby's one true muse: being naughty -- is like an ironed and overdriven Wreckless Eric, "Grenfell Forever" is taken from the empty glass of the Billy Bragg back catalog. All that alongside the sneering eternity of "All Along the Uxbridge Road", the Hammond Organ smeared "Bruce Grove Bullies" -- it will all have you reaching for your London A to Z and trying your hardest not to spill your pint.
