I made the mistake of listening to my friend Scott Miller when I was younger. He told me Chisel was no good and I believed him.

I had not, of course, actually listened to them. It wasn't until years later that I started listening to Ted's solo stuff that I decided to go back and reexamine his earlier work. My roommate Andrew was super into Chisel, and it wasn't long before I was too.

I accidentally saw The Sin Eaters at Coney Island High in 1998. I wish I had a clearer memory of that show because I know they only played two and they are supposedly legendary.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, 3.5 singles by Chisel.

1. Swamp Fox/Spike
2. Listen

Chisel/Brian, Colin, And Vince (Sudden Shame)
1. Spectacles

Sunburn (Gern Blandsten)
1. Sunburn
2. Little Gidding
3. 3 O'Clock High

It's Alright, You're O.K. b/w The Guns Of Meridian (Gern Blandsten)
1. It's Alright, You're O.K.
2. The Guns Of Meridian
