This is an album that many of us have been waiting for with baited breath. We all have the swimming lessons 7" that came out a few years back on planet Mu. It lead us to believe that Chevronâ€™s material was all going to be down tempo beautiful electronica. Then we went to the gigs and got slapped about by huge bass lines and mashed up beats. From those fantastic performances an excitement began to build. Well, the wait has certainly been worth

“Everything’s Exactly The Same”. Could be talking about television or the local high street, popular culture in general even. Teeming, ever different, ever the same. Maybe. In Chevron’s world everything’s bright and shiny. And noisy. And everything’s (mal)functioning, but gloriously so. Like an infinite number of monkeys making music that makes some kind of sense.
Running Out Of Time sounds like Vangelis mixed with a bit of Rob

'Chevron's LP [ZIQ092] drops on Valentine's day (see, his name is J.Valentine) with a corker of an album containing many of the live classics from the past 2 years.' Lets Chevron it right up..
"Swimmin Lessons" pops up in front of you and pixelates in and out of focus, jettisoning 8 bit style madness out of every pore like a fountain made of crunchy bits and bytes. It all goes quiet for a little while but only until the distortion star wars
