Collection: Chisel - 7"s & LPs

These days, Chisel is most famous for being the band Ted Leo fronted before he hooked up with the Pharmacists, but when I was buying these records, Chisel was simply one of the best bands going. Chisel had a jangle-y, mod-pop sound that really stood out at the time and it absolutely formed the basis for the tunes that Ted Leo is crafting these days.

The first album I ever heard by them was 8am All Day, and from the first few notes of the first song, "Hip Straights," I was hooked. I scurried around trying to pick up whatever vinyl I could. And while I still absolutely love everything Ted Leo is churning out these days, I'll always have a special place in my heart for these records
