ONE EXTRA COLD NEW YORK CITY WINTER,
Late Slip’s Chelsea Nenni (guitar/vocals) hid in her apartment, wrote a bunch of songs, and decided to move to Los Angeles. Once in LA, she got a job at her fave independent record store, Amoeba Music, and met a musician pal who helped her record the Other Men EP.

Other Men got airplay on a couple local radio stations and the band gained traction with live shows all over LA. They even spent a night supporting iconic new wave / post-punk rockers, Missing Persons, at the famed Whisky A Go-Go.

Standing on that stage, where both Iggy Pop and Gwen Stefani had once stood, Chelsea knew she was ready to go back to New York City. The winters would be cold, but she’d have Iggy-Gwen stardust to protect her.

So, Chelsea moved all her shit back across the country and found a new band in Andrew B. White (bass guitar) and Daryl Cozzi (drums) within two weeks of being back in town. In their first gig together, the band opened for Fred Thomas who was James Brown’s bass player in the 1960’s. He sprinkled some funky pixie dust on them that night and it’s been magic ever since.

Chrome-Plated Apostles
Chrome-Plated Apostles
Clifton Lee Mann founded the Bad Checks with his brother in 1980. The old-school rockers became one of North Carolina's signature acts playing with about every important underground punk and alt/rock group of the time.

Clifton went on to play with Pipe and The Ghost of Rock and more recently the Chrome-Plated Apostles. Mann brings the drunken rawk that resurrects memories of the earliest forefathers, The Blues Magoos, Count Five and of course the Stooges. More than a retro act, it's the spirit that lives in his guitar playing. It's hard to describe but, there's an inestimable feel when someone plays something true, like the Replacements tearing thru a song. Mann brings that kind of a smile to your face.

The Chrome-Plated Apostles are Mann on guitar, Jon McClain (Ugly Americans, Picasso Trigger, Leadfoot) on drums and Stefan Rogers (The B-sides) on bass. The crunch of each slide guitar downstroke throbs like a vein in your forehead ready to bust.It's like Bo-Diddly dropped an octave and sped up double speed played through Radio Shack speakers underwater, a huge sonic wave threatening to drown you in it's nasty rawkus guitar murk.
