Secret Affair + The Chords UKSecret Affair (Ian Page, Dave Cairns, Dennis Smith & Seb Shelton) formed in 1978 from their previous incarnation as the "power pop" band New Hearts. In a period of a little over two years, they posted five releases in the UK Singles Chart, and released three albums. The debut single "Time For Action" reached number 13 in the UK chart, putting them at the forefront of the mod revival movement. More chart success followed with "Let Your Heart Dance", "My World", "Do you know" and "Sound Of Confusion". They also drew up plans for a smart-dressing youth movement - "The Glory Boys" – based around the idea of 1960s gangster chic, influenced by the movie, "Performance."

The Chords UK were formed in 2012 by Chris Pope, the chief songwriter/guitarist of the highly regarded late 70’s new wave pop act The Chords. Commonly associated with the mod revival, the band released several singles in 1979-80 hitting the Top 40 with "Maybe Tomorrow" plus one solitary album "So Far Away" reaching the Top 30. Over three decades on, original lead singer Billy Hassett had relocated to Tokyo and was performing the band’s repertoire as The J-Chords, so Pope decided to create a UK version in order to continue playing the likes of ‘Maybe Tomorrow’, ‘So Far Away’, ‘The British Way of Life’ and other songs that he had written for the band.
Teaming up with the crack rhythm section of Mic Stoner (bass) and Kenny Cooper (drums) and later adding guitarist Sandy Michie, this line-up have been gigging regularly since 2014 and started recording new material a year later. Their opening salvo was an EP entitled ‘Get Famous’, released in the autumn of 2015 and described by Vive Le Rock as "more melodic pop chestnuts from a much underrated UK songwriter." Working with renowned producer Pat Collier, the group have now delivered a blistering debut album, ‘Take On Life’ to Critical acclaim.
"A crafted, contemporary, hook-laden punk-pop MUST HAVE release, from one of his generation’s most gifted songsmiths... 4 Stars" RECORD COLLECTOR
"A recommended body-of-work from a well-respected voice of contemporary rock’n’roll" 8/10 VIVE LE ROCK
"It’s not a rework... It’s much better than that... a vision of what they (THE CHORDS) could have become" SCOOTERING "’
TAKE ON LIFE’ is full of that aggressive energy that typifies Chris Pope’s song writing... and he and THE CHORDS UK deliver".. New Untouchables
Chris Pope has also recorded with the bands Agent Orange, Gatecrash Heaven and Pope, and released three acclaimed albums under his own name, the most recent of which is 2012’s ‘Peace Of Mind’.
