The Chords first found success nearly 40 years ago during the Post-Punk Mod revival. Reformed in 2010, disbanding again in 2012, The Chords UK came about as chief songwriter Chris Pope took the idea to “keep on keeping ‘Maybe Tomorrow’, ‘So Far Away’, ‘The British Way of Life’ and all the rest of the Chords songs alive”. “It’s really our take on the tunes I wrote back then, bringing it all up to date & adding a bunch of new songs into the set .” Chris States. “Singing these tunes , really gives me a buzz and having these guys behind me tops if all off perfectly”
“At first, we didn’t know what to expect or what type of reaction we were going to get back. But the feedback and comment have been amazing. It’s great that people still want to hear the songs & see this band.”
Since reforming, The Chords UK have played numerous festivals and gigs home and abroad. After a storming set at SVF North in 2017 we are delighted to welcome the band back for the SVF South crowd.
