The Chiefs – Speed Rock 7″

chiefs speed rock bachelor records 2014

Bachelor Records in Austria just dropped a new 7″ from their sub-label, the Bachelor Archives. THE CHIEFS were originally active in 1977, and this new 7″ unearths the singles from the tapes of their earliest recordings.

Part of the tape that included these three songs also featured covers from the Troggs, the Kinks and the like, which shows what the band was going for over forty years ago. As the story goes, the trio practiced a whopping 5 times before getting their first gig at a local dive bar in Austria. The band eventually parted ways and the members went on to form various other bands: Sparys, Plastix, Westblock, Standart Oil and the Swamp Chiefs to name a few. The three piece band leaves us with three smoking tracks of early punk, buried deep in fuzz and loaded with jagged hook after hook. Get your fill with these two explosive tracks below.
