The Chap, the already-legendary London-based, modern pop group, are back with their third album, Mega Breakfast. The Chap have become known and loved for their inimitable "pop improv disco rock with strings" sound and a furiously rocking live show, complete with dance routines. Mega Breakfast is the sound of the search for a heart of gold in a world gone cold. It deals with sex issues, depression and classic economics. The Chap have expanded their repertoire to include some Justin Timberlake style R&B, an ode to World Music, and a corporate motivational song. They are moving into new pop territory, getting with some serious choir singing and funky harmonizing. But, like on their previous two albums, you'll feel pleasure and terror alike when listening to these songs. Why is there a very camp-sounding fire fighter's choir fronting some kind of fierce sci-fi indie rock combo, demanding "Proper songs about girls and clubbing"? Do they mean that? I could go on. It's all infectious, blistering pop music, but all the while something is deliciously wrong here, making for what is sure to be one of the most intriguing releases of 2008.The Chap have been busy since their last album "Ham" remixing Beck and Bloc Party, as well as gigging intensively around the UK and Europe. They are coming to the US this year.
