CHAOS UK are an english hardcore punk band formed in 1979 in Portishead, near Bristol. They played fast aggressive hardcore punk rock initially. The original line up of Simon on vocals, Andy on guitar, Chaos (aka "Lice") on bass and Potts on drums recorded two EP's and a full LP for Riot City Record. In the process they along with fellow Bristolians Disorder and Stoke's Discharge revolutionised the hardcore punk scene. In particular the Japanese 80's hardcore punk bands were heavily influenced by CHAOS UK and Disorder's brutal take on punk. CHAOS UK's debut LP was notable in the fact that the band's label claimed it was the "fastest, noisiest LP in the cosmos" in the short lived "Punk Lives" magazine; vocal duties on this recording were also handled by bassist Chaos.

"enough to make me crazy"
Year:  1991
Country:  UK
City:  Bristol
Label:  Toys Factory
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  11
Time:  31 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Hardcore





























This was the first CHAOS UK album from the 90s decade and included some new tracks and also old classic songs. Firstly released by brittish label "Vinyl Japan Records" in 1991 and late there were different releases in labels such as Toy's Factory Records (in 1992) or "Creative Man Records" (1998). I think the problem with CHAOS UK is they have made too much compilation, live albums, ep´s and splits next to other bands... and sometimes it's a little bit difficult to know wich are their official full lenght albums. This one here like other titles (of course) is an official album and perhaps one of its complete discography, despite is also maybe one of the most forgotten. Very good quality sound, production and also good songs. The band started in 1979 and is still active, making live concerts from time to time in UK, Europe, USA and Japan.

City:  Bristol
Label:  none

Tracks:  15
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk        Hardcore





























Unofficial but very nice compilation with 20 tracks appeared in five EP's recorded by the band from 1993 to 2016. Here are we go with this great and already legend band which is still quite unknown even in the hardcore punk scene. Their sound continue to be noisy and dirty, and quite speed tempo, in the UK 82 bands, you know. is moderately fast, but not hardcore. And also never forget the jokes and good humor of the singer, Simon, with a peasant and almost rural voice... ha ha! Chaos UK started late 1979 and still active despite all these years. They have made good splits next to Extreme Noise Terror, Concrete Sox, Fuk or Raw Noise to mention a few. So this compilation exist at the moment just on digital format but is a perfect way to enjoy these guys during fourty minutes. Enjoy it
