At the core are The Leg’s long-term trio of mercurial vocalist and driving force Dan Mutch, cellist, producer and one-man scratch orchestra Pete Harvey and percussive polymath Alun Scurlock (formerly Alun Thomas).
The three have played together for the best part of twenty years, ever since Mutch first unleashed his first band, Khaya, into the world before it morphed into Desc, eventually realigning as The Leg.
The Leg have pillaged their way through four albums in their own right, they have also provided muscle, heft and salty shout-alongs with their comrade-in-song over four LPs as Paul Vickers and The Leg.
Chromatic Perversion features guitarist James Metcalfe and bass player John Mackie swelling the ranks.
Metcalfe comes to The Leg after stints in The Pineapple Chunks led to his current tenure in Zed Penguin and Tardigrades.
Mackie’s pedigree dates all the way back to Khaya.
After years working at the coal-face in search of buried treasure at Harvey’s Pumpkinfield studio hideaway where the album was recorded, they have finally come blinking into the light with wayward and possibly gleeful abandon.
