Fire Chief Charlie
Fire Chief Charlie
Fire Chief Charlie is a love story. In a Chicago suburb in 2000, Jamie first entered Jonah’s life by cartwheel from stage left as a high school freshman in Bye Bye Birdie while Jonah watched from the audience. Ten years later, they reunited in Los Angeles when Jonah’s Chicago act, Fire Chief Charlie, moved out west. Jonah’s solo act quickly became a duet that eventually grew to include two more midwestern natives (Lucas Dunning, Eric Radoux), completing the four-piece band.

Fire Chief Charlie’s music is an eclectic mix of traditional folk/rock songwriting and genre-hopping arrangements. Their songs and concerts come alive through the performances of dancer Darren Schroader, whose avant-garde choreography and costumes surprise the band and audience alike.

London duo Tokyo Taboo’s debut album '6th Street Psychosis' is out now via TT Records. The album features ten tenacious, in-your-face tracks that combine the band’s rock and pop punk influences.

The duo comprise of singer Dolly Daggerz and guitarist Mike, who are joined by a band for their live shows. Dolly takes inspiration from iconic performers from Heart to David Bowie and Karen O and Mike simply loves a good riff. Tokyo Taboo is a perfect amalgamation of Dolly and Mike’s influences; inspired by Manga, Japanese culture, drag and 80s fashion, they are true performers, with an image that equals the intense vibrancy of what you hear on record.

Featuring hectic, heart-pounding hooks and soaring rock-inspired vocals, Tokyo Taboo cover a range of subjects on the album, which was recorded in Downtown LA. From Dolly’s quarter life crisis to politics and vulnerability, they aren’t afraid of smashing the expectations of ‘the industry’ whilst wearing their hearts on their sleeves - cuts, bruises, tears and all.

On the album, ’Bubbilicious’ is a racing, high-octane opener, whilst ‘Emotional Suicide’ is filled with an uptempo, feisty power and ‘N.A.R.C.I.S.M’ oozes brutal honesty, raw riffs and dark undertones. Meanwhile, single Make It Out Alive was inspired by the vote to bomb Syria and the feeling of frustration, hopelessness and anger Dolly felt, which seethe through the music as she spits and snarls each lyric over Mike’s raucous riffs.

Make It Out Alive gained support from the likes of Radio X and BBC Radio 1 and with '6th Street Psychosis' out now, Tokyo Taboo bring their own brand of modern pop punk kicking and screaming into the public consciousness.
