Five years ago, during SXSW, Chunklet put on a 20 band bill in two parking lots in north Austin. Two bands met and became immediate fans of each other. Torche, who were still a brand new band and at SXSW at Chunklet’s request, and Part Chimp, the noise titans from London who were touring the States for the second time. And well, on that steamy tarmac, a love affair was born.

Almost immediately thereafter, we all started discussing a split release featuring the two bands, and sadly, it takes the pending dissolution of Part Chimp at the end of this year to make it happen. Yes, this is the final Part Chimp release here in the States and the penultimate worldwide.

Part Chimp turn in two scorchers, ‘Dr. Horse’ and ‘The Watcher’ while Torche send a love letter to the boys from Dayton and cover three Guided By Voices songs (‘Exit Flagger,’ ‘Unleashed! The Large Hearted Boy’ and ‘Postal Blowfish’).

This was available only during the band’s tour up the East Coast in November and the Chunklet website for a limited time.
