The Chimps are Dave Werner, Jesse Irwin, and John Krane. Play No Evil is our first and greatest record.
"While the individual personalities of the Chimps' members are on full display throughout Play No Evil, the end product still manages to come together as a thoroughly cohesive effort that shows off some of the best of what the city's singer-songwriter scene has to offer.
"You'll probably never find yourself putting this album on while you're heading to a party, hanging out with friends or even trying to get some work done, but if you find yourself with 45 minutes or so to really listen to a collection of songs — on a Sunday morning, perhaps — Play No Evil is definitely worth the attention." - Nick Horn, Riverfront Times.
