Torche & Part Chimp Record A Split 12" Release On Chunklet For PC's Final US Tour - PREORDER NOW!
POSTED SUNDAY 09.18.11

Five years ago, during SXSW, Chunklet put on a 20 band bill in two parking lots in north Austin. Two bands met and became immediate fans of each other. Torche, who were still a brand new band and at SXSW at Chunklet's request, and Part Chimp, the noise titans from London who were touring the States for the second time. And well, on that steamy tarmac, a love affair was born.

Almost immediately thereafter, we all started discussing a split release featuring the two bands, and sadly, it takes the pending dissolution of Part Chimp at the end of this year to make it happen. Yes, this is the final Part Chimp release here in the States and the penultimate worldwide.


Part Chimp turn in two scorchers, Dr. Horse and The Watcher while Torche send a love letter to the boys from Dayton and cover three Guided By Voices songs (Exit Flagger, Unleashed! The Large Hearted Boy and Postal Blowfish).

This, Chunklet's 9th 12" release, will be available only during the band's tour up the East Coast in November and here for a limited time. Edition of 500.

Some details:

- It will ship the same week as the Torche/Part Chimp tour.

- The cover artwork (featuring Gorillas and Yeti's fighting in a future we'll hopefully never witness) was done by the world-renowned sci-fi illustrator Trevor Claxton.

- The type was hand drawn by Nolen Strals from Post-Typography and Double Dagger.

- Copies purchased off of the Chunklet website are available in black and colored vinyl for a very limited time and on the Torche/Part Chimp tour in early November (while supplies last).

- SPECIAL CHUNKLET EXCLUSIVE! All copies purchased off of the Chunklet website will be personally signed by the artist Trevor Claxton!
