OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf all the best music is that mercurial mix between passion, drama, danger, intelligence and delivered with brilliant lyrics, a command of drama and a real streetwise black velvet lived in voice then Shaking Chains are a walk on for your heart.

What used to be the quite brilliant Frazer King – a band whose eccentric, lopsided mixture of styles hit perfection before that kind of thing was cool have regrouped and God they sound good.

Still fronted by the charismatic and devilishly crazy high IQ gutter revolutionary poet, Nathan McIlroy, the band are dealing these perfect dark vignettes that are full of a rare intelligence and are limbering up with a  hometown show and a London support.
