As we told you way back in February of last year, Pelican guitarist Trevor de Brauw has a side project called Chord. As their name suggests, Chord is driven by one simple but satisfying concept: playing the shit out of single chords. Since the group has an Important LP (Progression, available for pre-order here) on the way November 9, we’ve been asked to share the third installment in Chord’s live MP3 series: “F2,” which was captured at Chicago’s Double Door on February 15, 2007.
“While I seem to remember [guitarist] Phil [Dole] saying that he stole this chord from Van Halen’s ‘Panama’,” explains de Brauw, “I can’t find verification that this chord is in that song at all.”
