Dance Chapter, powered by the angelic vocals of Cyrus Bruton, were initially seen by Ivo’s partner Peter Kent as a band who might be capable of filling the void left by the death of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis. Although there wasn’t, in fact, a great deal of musical similarity between the two bands, Dance Chapter’s first single ‘Anonymity’ was an impressively tense piece of work. A four-song EP – ‘Chapter II’ – followed in 1981, after which the band parted company with 4AD.
desire is proud to release ‘Chapters’ aka the Complete Discography of Dance Chapter. Officially licensed from 4AD, ‘Chapters’ includes their first 7″ and their sole 12″ with an unreleased track (‘Uncertainty’). Beautifully packaged in a glossy full color sleeve, ‘Chapters’ also contains a nice double-sided 12″ insert reproducing the original artworks.
