about

he debut the pAper chAse album. Features one bonus track - a cover of David Bowie's "Five Years".

The Paper Chase (sometimes spelled "the pAper chAse") is an alternative rock band formed in 1998 by well known producer/engineer John Congleton in Dallas, Texas. Since its inception, The Paper Chase has produced a combination of discordant melody and jagged noise pop, described by Allmusic as "a jagged structure of avant-garde jazz, noise, indie, and punk".

"Uneasy listening in every sense but quite, quite brilliant nevertheless" - Kerrang.

The pAper chAse's debut album gets a welcome reissue on Southern Records, following on from the release of their newest long player Hide the Kitchen Knives.

This is an adventurous rethinking of rock's conventions. Earnest and
harrowing, Young Bodies Heal Quickly, You Know is the sound of
relationships - romantic and music - falling apart. Reaching back to
avant-jazz, Drive Like Jehu and King Crimson, the pAper chAse is, at its
heart, a radical demolition of rock structure and form.

Fronted by the anomalous John Congleton, the Denton, Texas based band brings a new level of skill and intelligence to punk and rock. These
are songs born of a different vision where melody and rhythm are not the
foundation of songs, but mere elements. This album also features an extra bonus track, David Bowie's "Five Years".

For years Southern operated as a recording studio & the biz wheels behind labels like Crass, Corpus Christi, Bluurg & Dischord, before launching an eponymous imprint in 1991 ... more
