Mixed by James Fearn-Wannan
Recorded at The Zoo, Fortitude Valley, 9 August 2019
Initially active from 1991 to 1996, Chalk rose from humble origins in an East Brisbane sharehouse to release a string of EPs: “Immortality” and “Iris” in 1994 and “Burlesque” in 1995. After calling it quits the band members went on to play in various other projects before reuniting for a show at The Zoo in 2014. Since then the band have recorded their very first album, “The Quiet City”, released 24 years after their last EP. In August 2019 Chalk got together once more to launch the album, featuring James Kliemt on vocals and guitar, James Lees on keys/percussion/drums, Steve Swart on bass, Dave Gilbert on guitars/vocals plus additional players Richard Johnston on drums, Adam Cadell on violin, album producer James North on keys/guitar/vocals and a cameo spot from original member Matthew Clark on vocals.
