The Boutique Label and LTM is pleased to announce a second CD from baffling cult pranksters Crawling Chaos. Hailing from Tyneside, the band first came into being in 1979. In 1980 they released the cult ‘heavy modern’ single Sex Machine on Factory (Fac 17), which reached number 3 in the indie charts but attracted a fistful of atrocious reviews surpassed only by those for their album The Gas Chair, released on Factory Benelux in early 1982. Think Nurse With Wound locked in an airing cupboard with Joe Meek and H.P. Lovecraft. Or as Factory’s January 1980 newsletter had it: “Three short-haired awkward types who are a cross between Status Quo and Orchestral Manoeuvres.” The Gas Chair was recorded at the band’s own studio, The Pits, and edited down from many hours of tape. Factory somehow lost 15 minutes of material intended for the album, and so the same Pits sessions resulted in a cassette released on their own Foetus Productions label in late 1981, titled Homunculus Equinox. This has now remastered for CD with two extra tracks, Danger In Paradise and Block Numbers. Please note that Crawling Chaos was never an elaborate joke by more famous musicians, as is often rumoured. In April 1980 the NME demanded that the band ‘come out with their hands up.’ Well, they’re still not going to, but The Boutique Label can reveal that the stunning Homunculus Equinox cover image is by A. Chester.
