1.) Chop Chop is the musical creation of Ms. Catherine Cavanagh, who wrote, sang, produced, engineered, and thought very hard about every song on the album. She also played guitar, drum machine, and occasionally bass and keys. Catherine was joined by Christy Cheng on keyboards and Carla Caruzzo on bass. The name Chop Chop is inspired by the double ‘C’ initials of each of the musicians. Since recording the album, Ms. Cavanagh has decreed that anyone associated with Chop Chop has the initials CC, even if it means legally changing her/his name.

This is what is known about Chop Chop’s album. It was recorded in an attic apartment behind the railyards of Allston, Massachusetts The album features 12 or 13 songs, each quite different from the other, encompassing sounds ranging from guitar rock to electronica. It could not have been recorded anywhere other than Allston; the neighborhood is part of Chop Chop’s canvas, especially the sounds of trains at night and the desolation of the railyard. Aubrey Anderson of Skating Club added a sunny Saturday feeling to the mix, as he spent many a sunny Saturday mixing the songs. Since finishing the album, Chop Chop have been playing like mad around Boston, with a lineup that includes, Catherine, Christy, and Karlos Cola on drums.
