Chapter 24 are Claire Smith (vocals), Joe Green (guitar), Mel Stark (bass) and Mark Castro (drums) from London, England. Mel and Claire got bored back in their school days and decided to start a band with Joe, and after eventually finding Mark through a myspace ad in 2008 they released their debut four-track EP in March 2011 on their own label Chaps Records. Influenced by late 70s punk, the Riot Grrrl movement and 60s psychedelia; Chapter 24’s enthusiasm for playing live shows has seen them open for Times New Viking, Japandroids and Thee Oh Sees.
“Channeling the best of The Slits and The Clash from the punk fraternity and nodding towards Vampire Weekend with their spikey Afro-punk guitar riffs, their music is infectious, fresh and wholly danceable.” —BBC 6
“Chapter 24 are a london-germinated quartet who’ve nailed the slashing guitar versus tropicalized drums backbone perfectly. … Comparisons to the tropical punk craze are bound to be made but there’s enough crampsy stomp and noise to prise Chapter 24 out of the jaws of genre.” —Rough Trade
