Album Notes
“Raw anarchic energy underpinned by impressively tight delivery: They are a true party band with depth, heart and ample collective talent.” — Sue Wilson, HI-Arts

'The Road to Hammer Junkie' is the red-blooded, scintillating and infectious follow-up to 'Huinka'. This album takes The Chair’s reputation and spins it round on its head.

The second coming of Orkney’s wild-eyed islanders, 'The Road to Hammer Junkie' cements The Chair’s reputation for making high-energy, infectious dance music. Steeped in Orcadian heritage, The Chair draw on their roots for this dramatic follow-up to their hugely successful debut album ‘Huinka’. The Chair’s big sound is stretched over 11 tracks of tunes and songs laced with sparky grooves and spicy arrangements.

With twin fiddles, accordion, drums, bass guitar, banjo AND hammer, The Chair have achieved international acclaim since 'Huinka' and now go on to the next level. The Chair have succeeded in translating their barnstorming festival performances onto CD without losing any of the energy and dynamism of the live shows. This album is one to put a smile on your face, a bounce in your step and warmth in your heart.

This is folk music for the 21st century; traditional and forward looking.
