"Chet in The Dark"

"I am afraid to play it because its creepy looking [] Its the kind of stuff that I always associate with [sic] cult figures, because its got that Manson look to it. [] because Im just looking at this, and I figure there is gotta be some subliminal messages in this music thats gonna make me wanna go out and do something that I dont want to do. " - Stan Lawrence, The Stan and Terry Show, 105.9 WCKG

"Live Show Review"

"Pretty much rocks. Lots dark guitar parts with throbbing bass. A lot of screaming with some singing. Not exactly 1 genre of music, a little metal influence some grunge influence, indie rock" - True Punk Rock

"Live Show Review"

Upon seeing this mysterious cult rock band live, one gets the impression that these bong fueled Brits are completely insane. One moment, you are humming along to an enchanting melody and as you think the tune is coming to a peacuful end; Chet brings it back full on with heavy noise and distortion. The kind of heavy rock energy that make's your 2 year old's sugar high seem tame. - Rock Out Loud Zine

Feeling a bit camera shy


Formed in April 20, 2003 @ 4:20 pm in Manchester, United Kingdom. The original line up featured Chet Parsons, Thurston Rockwell, Estella Rose and Tsquared.

Their goal was to make feedback and distortion driven hard rock that strayed from the polished mild-rock sounds that have dominated Top 40 radio. Instead of churning out a cookie cutter sound such as pop-punk or synth rock, the band mined influences ranging from The Pixies and Slayer to Billy Ray Cyrus and Surrealist Composers of the 40's in order to create Rock that is beyond classification.

After getting their start touring bars in The UK, The Netherlands, and Tokyo; The Project signed to Infinity Record and Exploitation Records in Nov '05. Member Tsquared retired and Chicago drummer Seryozha was added. In Dec '05 The Chet Parsons project left for the USA where they recorded the upcoming EP "Chet Monsters will haunt you in your Dreams" a follow up to their Debut EP "Chetting in The Dark".
