Chin Up Chin Up

Chicago avant-pop combo Chin Up Chin Up was formed in the fall of 2001 by former Punjab singer/guitarist Jeremy Bolen and ex-Nymb singer/guitarist Nathan Snydacker. Bassist Chris Saathoff and drummer Chris Dye completed the original lineup, which spent eight months writing original songs and honing its textured, sinuous sound before ever playing its first live date. In May 2002 Chin Up Chin Up recorded a self-titled six-song EP, issued on its own Record Label imprint early the following year. In early 2004 the group completed a four-song demo, on February 13 celebrating the accomplishment by attending a record release show for fellow Windy City band the Ponys at the local club the Empty Bottle; around 1:00 in the morning, while exiting the concert with his girlfriend, Saathoff was struck by a drunk driver, who never stopped his vehicle and dragged the bassist's body for nearly two blocks. Saathoff was pronounced dead at the scene, and his parents established the Christopher Saathoff Foundation in his memory, recruiting the surviving members of Chin Up Chin Up to headline a pair of benefit gigs -- Quinn Goodwillie of Chicago's Mt. St. Helens filled in on bass, and the shows were so warmly received that the band decided to continue, sending the completed demo to dozens of labels before settling on local imprint Flameshovel. During the recording sessions that followed, Saathoff's bass tracks from the demo tape were isolated, with new songs created around them -- the resulting LP, We Should Have Never Lived Like We Were Skyscrapers, followed in the fall of 2004, around the time that Appleseed Cast bassist Marc Young was named Saathoff's permanent replacement. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

That's not nice. This band tried their a** off for years, but finally threw in the towel. I thought they were very unique, and I like them.
This band bites. Get offa my Pandora
one of my all time favorite bands. i see the resemblance to Sea and Cake and Pinback though Chin Up Chin Up is hard to classify. A similarity i've always thought was interesting is with Minus The Bear, the way both bands layer their sound.
Philip is right. Ironic that we call it "progress."
I definitely think the sea and cake are more similar than pinback.
Is this band related to !!!? Every time I hear them, I think it's the same singer... vocals sooooo similar.
Ohh an avant garde band how arrrtsy
it seems like driving and being around drivers is the most dangerous thing you can do in your day to day life. it's fuckign bullshit
Agreed, Pinback is most similar IMO, though Sea and Cake is a close 2nd.
if you have to compare them, sea and cake is a good call.. but pinback seems more apt
Sad story
This is my kind of fluff.
Collide the Tide is a dream. These guys are incredible. So glad to have stumbled across them. Thanks Pandora.
"Mansioned" is like a Sea and Cake practice session with a homeless guy sitting outside the window playing his hobo harmonica. Did I mention it's awesome?
The vocals on "Collide the Tide" are reminiscent of Joe Strummer/Cla s h .
nathanedens
they remind me a little of CALLA
I likey.
rayjay92
you love it. its is just happy. your just loving life when you listen to it :)
Wow - sounds *exactly* like old Sea and Cake. If you like this band, check out the Sea and Cake self titled album ('94)... you'll love it.
I agree ssabmudarts o N . The sound is crisp and clean.
I like what I hear, although all I ever hear is from the Self-titled CD with the two birds on the cover. I'm guessing Pandora doesn't play any more of their material.
Chin Up Chin Up's sound is so incredibly original. I can't wait to hear more from them.
These guys are awesome. I hope they're still a band.
these guys rock!
I love these guys!!!
