Album Notes
Celebrity Chimp is proud to present its debut EP, Celebrity is the New Royalty. This 5 track EP is released by Green Pea Productions.
The recording was made at the renowned Sawmills Studios in Cornwall in November 2008, a little under 11 months after the band was founded. Celebrity Chimp was originally a banjo and drums duo. Andy McKay, composer on Kris Drever’s Grammy nominated album Black Water and Tom Smith, Manchester drumming ace, are Celebrity Chimp. The pair played the open mics of the London music scene relentlessly until they found their spiritual home at the Hobgoblin on White Lion St, N1. They now take up residency monthly to delight a growing crowd of pink dancing ‘Chimps’, where Derek and Clive-esque verbal sniping comes to intersperse and tangle with the tunes.
Always at the heart of Celebrity Chimp is a desire to write great melodies, the kind that stay in your head all week. Underpinning these are Andy’s boundary breaking banjo parts and Tom’s ear-defying drums, all set against driving bass.
Please enjoy listening to the tracks; we look forward to your reviews, thoughts and verdicts with all the anticipation you can imagine from a new band in its first commercial venture.

My favourite song is Murderer..! This long awaited album is just brilliant. A proper dancing and jumping sound that is infectious... Great album guys. Buy this...it rocks..!

The band Celebrity Chimp recently entered my inbox with unfortunately, limited information about them. The good thing though, is that I was able to find their MySpace page and once the music started I was hooked.
A coalition of the willing. A force of nature based on musical artists who want to say something about the world they live in and be free of the merry-go-round of make record release make record release. Attached to the old fashioned notion that it’s cool to care about the world you live in made popular by the punks and the 60’s counter culturalists before them we got together and made a record from our own pockets to make a stand and put our sword in the dirt.
