Chain and The Gang: Rock 'n' roll Theology

From RNZ Music

Ian Svenonius has been referred to in the press as many things - Sassy Magazine called him ‘the sassiest boy in America’ and The Washington Post believe him to be “the most interesting man in rock n roll”.

The Washington DC-based punk, rock theorist and author is in New Zealand playing shows with his current outfit Chain and the Gang, where he is joined onstage by ex-pat kiwi Fiona Campbell on drums.

Melody Thomas speaks with Ian and Fiona about rock n roll, grrrl power and the DC hardcore scene.
