CHIMPANZEES will be playing live @ FIREBUG Leicester UK on FRIDAY 08th MAY 2009.

Door: 8:00 PM Age Limit: 13-18 Tickets: £2.00

It will be a low key affair for us to introduce our new drummer J.P. and debut some of our new songs.


Escaping from a secret government funded research facility beneath ***NAME WITHELD*** Zoo in Leicestershire in the year 2007 AD the four members of the Chimpanzees - all being scientifically altered and capable of speech, upright posture and with opposable thumbs - decided to form a musical group to express their dissatisfaction with human culture and society. Otherwise they would have just gone on the rampage around the city like Gremlins tearing it the fuck up while screaming and throwing their fecal matter at windows, cars and any people that were unlucky enough to be passing by.
