As If By Magic
Well here it is.... Detour Records off-shoot label "Paisley Archive" brings you one of their labels stalwarts once again... The Chosen were one of the labels brightest signings back in 90s before calling it a day in the 2000's. Sadly Detour thought they never really hit the heights that they deserved.... This release showcases the direction they were heading in when they split, plus it rounds up all the loose ends and puts a full stop on the bands career! The band decided to have a sabbatical after many years of gigging and recording - months became years and lives moved on - then an unfulfilled commitment to get back together was brought to the fore with the untimely and devastating passing away of the bands drummer John Marley - the unreleased second album and rare recordings are included as a lasting testimony to the power popping journey that was the Chosen !!......
