Chancery Blame began fronting his band The Gadjo Club in 2007, a mishmash of musical
geniuses including Dave Shulman on clarinet and saxophone, Stef Kalonaris on guitars,
Garance Loius on accordion, Dave O’Brian on double bass and keyboards and Jimmy Norden
on drums. A shared passion for eastern European and klezmer music was combined with
a love of art-rock, swing, Americana and other world sounds and fused with Chancery
Blame’s charismatic vocals, creating something truly infectious.
Chancery Blame & The Gadjo Club launched their first studio E.P, ‘Pretty Face’, in
February 2009 and in May 2009 the lead track ‘Unzer Toirele’ was featured on compilation
album ‘Waltzes, Glitches & Brass: The New Sounds of Vaudeville’, on US based EMP.
In June 2010 the same track was licensed to Green Queen records for release on ‘Mind
The Brass’, a compilation of the best of the London based Balkan scene.
Blame’s latest single, a double A-side of the self-penned ‘Tokyo Oh Oh’ and a ‘spine-tingling’
cover of The Pixies’ legendary ‘Where Is My Mind?’was released in October 2010 on
Outsider! Records, picking up exceptional reviews.
Their incendiary live shows have led to Chancery Blame and his band becoming firm
favourites at nights such as Stranger Than Paradise, Gypsy Hotel, Radio Gargarin
and Balkan Beats in London. In addition they are no stranger to festivals and have
played at The Big Chill, The Secret Garden Party, Bhuddafields, Sidmouth Folk Festival,
Standon Calling, and Cardiff’s Big Weekender...
No mean feat for an artist with just two singles under his belt.
A new single ‘The Last Days Of Decadence’will be released for download in Spring
2011 and Chancery Blame is now working on his debut album ‘Come On In’for release
later in 2011.

“Fast rising stars of the nu-gypsy folk and beats scene” -The Independent
“The violin-wielding frontman of the Gadjo Club has the type of intriguing personality
which shines through on a record such as this. They won’t be one of the capital’s
best-kept secrets for long.” -Charlie Ashcroft – Artrocker Magazine 8/10
“Another fresh autumnal offering is London-based Chancery Blame and The Gadjo Club’s
fiendishly catchy second single “Tokyo Oh Oh” (Outsider!). A spine-tingling cover
of the Pixies ‘Where is my mind?’ – that’s already garnered acclaim from Radio 1’s
Rob Da Bank - features on the flip side.”The Independent - A Month In Music: October
“Led by Chancery Blame, who is reminiscent of Nick Cave reborn as a 10 star high
octane virtuoso fiddle player, The Gadjo Club have the seedy and sin flecked aura
of a band whose music you would follow beyond the fall of capitalism.” Max Reinhart
- BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction
