Chubby also Announces signing to Flatspot Records & play live show.

Charlie Manning is Chubby and The Gang. The 30-something-year-old born and bred Londoner, kicked off the project in 2019 with the intention of blending hardcore punk with the most infectious elements of ‘70s rock n roll and doo-wop. Charlie brought in a “gang” of rotating instrumentalists performing on the albums Speed Kills (2020) and The Mutt’s Nuts (2021), both released through Partisan Records. Fast forward to now and Chubby and the Gang joins long-running hardcore label Flatspot Records (Scowl, Speed) and shares the new single “The Bonnie Banks.”

“The Bonnie Banks” is an ode to London and just thinking things are going to be okay. Lead by lively guitar, the song has an infectious, but rough around the edges delivery. Manning’s storytelling nature of the track leads to a repetitive refrain that is begging to be shouted along with.

Chubby and The Gang will performing on June 15th at Flatspot World in London alongside Scowl, Jivebomb, and Stiff Meds. Tickets are available HERE.
