about

Chavo is a London based band, initially formed as a Balkan recital outfit playing acoustic music to seated audiences. Very quickly the audiences began to stand up and the show times moved from 3pm to 3am. Sweating it out on the oom-pah music circuit became the norm, and after many years Chavo felt a desire for change. They waved goodbye to the traditional material (often sung in Roma or Serbian) and crafted an album of original songs in their home tongue - English. A change in line up and instrumentation also followed as they caught up with the technology of the 1970’s. What appears to have distilled from this epic journey is both imaginative and intriguing. A percussion heavy, mandolin infused, vintage keys indie band with seductive female bv’s, pounding bass lines, 4-floor dance rhythms and harmonic discord - a firm footing in the west with a nod to the east.

Track Name: Greek Disco (Original)
VERSE
Well she's a broad minded girl
and I'm a long haired man
I see my future shining bright in her apple red lips
She said one condition applies
As the oil sheik’s nephew kissed her eyes
Don't be mad if I run my hand up the enemies thigh

Sitting in the millionaire docks
Making angels from a cigarette box
Unimpressed by the way I dress and the ice cream
She said deep down I'm really kinda shy
From the lap of a Japanese spy
Don't be mad if I run my hand up the enemies thigh

CHORUS
There’s cocoa in the barn you can shoot it in your arm all night
There’s credit on your charm pack your bag before it’s gone alright

VERSE
Elvis preacher in the Bahrain sun
Selling weddings to the love struck
Passes by while she catches the eye of a rap star
She said I can be discreet
I’d lick the blood off a matadors feet
I said well hey, this must be the day for a new way

CHORUS
There’s cocoa in the barn you can shoot it in your arm all night
There’s credit on your charm pack your bag before it’s gone alright
