Chameleons Vox @ Metro Gallery [Baltimore, MD] - 10/7/15

Although they only existed for six years and released three albums in their original run, The Chameleons were one of the most influential bands of the British post-punk movement in the 1980s.  A brief reunion in 2000 resulted in one new album and a pair of acoustic releases re-recording the band’s classic tracks, but dissolved in acrimony and in-fighting after only a couple of years.  More recently, singer and bassist Mark Burgess has been touring as Chameleons Vox, performing the band’s catalog with a rotating cast of musicians backing him.  Last week, the band came to the Metro Gallery in Baltimore on their “Farewell Tour” as Burgess intends to cut back on the regular touring schedule.
