Age Of Chance

Age Of Chance

Profile:
AGE OF CHANCE were a British alternative rock-dance crossover band from Leeds, England, active from 1985 to 1991. They were perhaps most known for their mutant metallic cover of Prince's "Kiss". Musically they were a sonic collision of punk, hip hop, industrial rock and Northern soul. Steven E provided a distinctive strident nasal vocal style, often employing a megaphone. He left the band before 'Mecca'. Striking cover art visuals were a collaboration between the group and The Designers Republic, who would go on to graphic design fame. They were contemporaries of Pop Will Eat Itself, whose music also featured rock guitar, dance beats and copious samples, and other early UK samplist groups such as Coldcut and The JAMMs.

Members:
Steven Elvidge (mob-orator)
Geoff Taylor (all nite bass frequencies)
Neil Howson (power-noise generator)
Jan Perry (beat dominator)
