Like excitedly unwrapping a present, each time a new song by Chimpshed A.D. arrives in my email inbox, I have no idea what to expect, but know it will be a welcome gift to the world of music.

Animals, which was made available within the past twenty four hours  is no exception as the duo reveal almost three and a half minutes of  hip-dipping psychedelic-funk, which needs an immediate hit of replay.

Long may Chimpshed A.D. continue to throw out their musical ideas, which always brighten the day.

Chimpshed A.D. – Intervention – Audio

The English expressionist duo Chimpshed A.D. you will know if you are of longer stay and will also have travelled their journey from introduction in 2014.

Chimpshed A.D. - Intervention

The latest number to surface is Intervention which is a marked step in their acerbity in a funk-groove number that stretches across the palette of the creations previously iterated as they fuse concepts of Huggy Bear and Derek Hatton to leave the listener in a conflagration of introspection.

Chimpshed A.D. is able to eviscerate the mind of the audience with their sharply ploughed contemplative which scours across the room in insistent tempo as they challenge preconception in a fusillade of corkscrews of electronica that drills the mind the longer the excoriating statement of Intervention plays.

Chimpshed A.D. – Blackhole Patisserie – Audio

Chimpshed A.D. from England make a welcome return – this time with an electro-soul track….

…that references of David Bowie in Ziggy Stardust mode.

Each time featured the duo feature they have a completely different sound to offer and I am given to believe in addition to Blackhole Patisserie – there are three more tracks set for  imminent release.

Chimpshed A.D. – Golden Ray – EP Review

Back in July of last year I introduced Chimpshed A.D. from England. On the 2nd of February they release the four track EP Golden Ray – perhaps best summed up as Northern Soul for the 2010s.

Immediately on hitting Toad In The Hole there is a new reference-point to the out-put as Chimpshed A.D. deliver a track which harks of influences of Beatnik with only a gauzy layer of psychedelia and a far more acerbic lyric that gives the opener plenty of points of interest.


Next is the title track Golden Ray which fuses jazz with groove to take the listener across a neon-lit multi-coloured dance floor. The tautly strung notes gives the track a retro-disco feel and I am minded to dress in wide collars and flares to get into the theme.

Track three is Cabin Fever and my pick of the release as Chimpshed A.D. head into deep funk territory – think Antonio Fargas.

Closing out a release that gives Chimpshed A.D. an even more expansive sea of blue-water to much of what sails today is Ayalla Kieesha which is steeped in fusion soul, set again to a lyric which holds relevance to the issues of the day.

Chimpshed A.D. have put together a top-notch release in Golden Ray that has the ears reminded of the ‘then’ whilst holding a firm footing in the now.
