Chris Chinchilla, former Art Brut guitarist and songwriter announces the release of his first solo material, an 8 track EP entitled 'Small Gregarious Mammal', a low budget DIY self release with hand made artwork from Artist 'Andy South', and the first from Chris's new project 'Ante Scene', keep an eye open for more on that in the near future. The songs cover a mixture of emotions inspired by events from the last year of Chris's life, observations on people, finding yourself and place in the world and new angles on being dumped by the love of your life, despite some of the melancholic content, the songs are inspiring and rousing, with crowds at gigs singing and dancing along.

The CD and download is a low-key release, primarily to promote his solo Australian tour and will be available from www.chinchilla-music.co.uk/music.php, gigs and smaller retailers, keep an eye on the site for updates. Chris's new band 'Macaca Mulatta' will be releasing a single later in the year.

In support of this and as a consequence of the increasing frustration in gig booking and the attitude of a lot of UK promoters, Chris will be further embracing the DIY approach by embarking on a tour of London open Mic nights, the first few are shown below but again visit www.chinchilla-music.co.uk/music.php for more details of the dates as they will constantly changing.

Well, my mate is also playing the River Bar (the one by Tower Bridge riiiiight?!), so I'll be there tonight.

If it's the same one, it's free to get to kids.
