le wistiti qui pisse ! dans la playlist de the chap !

The Chap ont fait une playlist pour le magazine FACT

et y'a un morceau de l'atelier rock et animaux !

Well Done Europe, the new album from London-orbiting avant-pop institution The Chap, is out now on Lo Recordings.

It’s the follow-up to the band’s mighty sophomore effort Mega Breakfast, which was released by Lo in the UK and Ghostly International in the US – testament to the band’s electronic invention as well as its surrealist songcraft. To celebrate the release of Well Done Europe, The Chap have lovingly assembled a mixtape for FACT embodying both their excellent taste and their unrelenting penchant for all things odd, eccentric and out of the ordinary. Worth checking for the Wevie Stonder track alone. Tracklist, complete with notes from the band, below; a brief Q&A follows over the page.

Download: The Chap – Mix for FACT

1. Peer Raben – Young And Joyful Bandit
“We did a cover of this for the Builder’s Brew mini album, and we used to play it live. Here’s the original, from the Fassbinder film, Querelle.

2. Die Antwoord – Rich Bitch

“Hot South African Zef Rap crew. Soon to be megastars.”

3. The Chap – We Work In Bars (Simon Bookish Remix)

“Our new single, really nicely remixed by Mr Bookish.”

4. ZZ Top – Manic Mechanic
“ZZ Top are just the best band ever.”

5. Delta 5 – Mind Your Own Business
“Right-on Leeds post-punk band from 1979. Good attitude.”

6. Lori Watt – Chill In My Vein
“New Zealand’s answer to Wing. Oh way, Wing is from New Zealand too… Must be something they put in the water. I got really into Lori
a few months ago and had all her songs on repeat. They’re really ‘out there’. She can be found in the interwebs.”

7. Wevie Stonder – Ton Wah
“Best song about bollards ever.”

8. Adam Bohman – Sun Dried
“From the 1999 album Music And Words. When The Chap started we always went along to the Bohman Brother’s improv shows in a little room in Vauxhall. Super inspirational stuff.”

9. Pleated Lemon – Safety Song

“Very useful song to remember if you’re caught in a fire. From the Spymania All Stars compiliation from 1999 – Welcome To Celebrity Fog Donkey.”

10. Circus Clown Calliope! – Cabaret

11. Francoise Hardy – Comment Te Dire Adieu
“Everybody loves Francoise Hardy.”

12. Grauzone – Eisbar
“It’s a hit from Switzerland.”

13. Nickel Pressing – Beck Is Back
“Friends from Lyon. It’s not often we all enjoy the bands we play with, but these guys were exceptional.”

14. Van Canto – My Voice
“Who thought acapella metal would be a good idea? Van Canto!! Check out their Metallica covers. Powerful.

15. Omo – Advantage (Splash Wave Remix)
“Omo remixed by some friends from Brest.”

16. Pastacas – Ava Ylased
“Sweet music from Estonia.”

17. Tones On Tail – Performance
“The good half of Bauhaus after they split.”

18. T3 Perm Leech – Orienteering Is Fucking Rubbish
“More Spymania.”

19. Rock Et Animaux – Le Wistiti Qui Pisse
“Our friends, Le Club Des Chats, do these nice sessions with children where the kids write and record songs about animals, and then make merch. All in 2 hours. This is a song about a monkey that likes to urinate.”

20. Ata Kak – Mama Yendodo
See here.

21. Wagon Christ – Night Owls
