chiefs of relief  freedom to rock   Options 12"  polydor  1988  November 21, 2007, after I posted a comment about The Godfathers to Ken's Accuplaylist:
Mike Lupica: OK smart guy, let's hear your complicated opinions about the Chiefs of Relief!
EFD: I never heard of them! But their very brief wikipedia entry sounds intriguing.
ML: WHUUUHH?? Evan, get a hold of yourself and stop blowing your credentials out of the water. For you to not have heard of the Chiefs of Relief is like me never having heard of breathing. They are like the Godfathers meets the Art of Noise meets Malcolm McLaren's "Duck Rock" LP + Paul Cook from the Sex Pistols (who plays drums for them.)
I will give you one of their records.

And so he did.
