Helmed by founding member and songwriter, Chris Pope, The Chords UK were formed in 2013 to continue playing ‘classic’ Chords tunes from their original 1980’s heyday inc their Top 40 Hit ‘Maybe Tomorrow’, ‘The British Way of Life’ and tracks of the Top 30 album ‘So Far Away’.

The band, comprising Chris, Kenny Cooper, Sandy Michie, and Dave Murrell have been cited live as “an incendiary rock n roll outfit” by Louder Than War.

On SAT 12th April 25 they are having their album launch party at the legendary 100 club for the release of ‘The best of THE CHORDS UK’s dbl-vinyl, triple cd entitled ‘BUT THEN AGAIN’.

The set will feature All the Original Hits and major cuts from the three CHORDS UK’s LP’s.

Their first release 2015’s ‘Get Famous’ Ep’ went straight into the official TOP 40 singles chart. Followed closely by their debut album ‘Take on Life (2016).  2018 saw them release the critically acclaimed ‘Nowhere Land’ and in 2022 ‘Big City Dreams’ LP saw them take it on tour in the USA, Europe, and the UK.

 They scored a No 1 on the legacy Charts with the single ‘All for nothing at all ‘.

Chris himself was described by Paul Weller as “the best songwriter of his generation”, by Uncut as “savage as Townshend with a toothache” and Vive Le Rock as creating, “timeless song writing and understated brilliance!” He’ll take that.
