Album: Age of Chance, 1000 Years of Trouble / The EPs (EMI)
Sunday 06 September 2009
Age of Chance arrived like a well-aimed grenade amid the lily-livered cuties of the C86 scene.
Best known for their gleeful cover of Prince's "Kiss", the Leeds agitators delivered a crush-collision of beatbox rhythms, metallic guitars and Situationist sloganeering. Their back catalogue, released on CD for the first time, inevitably sounds slightly dated at two decades' distance, yet also strangely fresh and often truly exhilarating. Imagine a British Debord reading the Beastie Boys.
