Chic: Profile and Biography
There can be little argument that Chic was disco's greatest band; and, working in a
heavily producer-dominated field, they were most definitely a band. By the time Chic
appeared in the late '70s, disco was already slipping into the excess that eventually
caused its downfall. Chic bucked the trend by stripping disco's sound down to its
basic elements; their funky, stylish grooves had an organic sense of interplay that
was missing from many of their overproduced competitors. Chic's sound was anchored
by the scratchy, James Brown-style rhythm guitar of Nile Rodgers and the indelible,
widely imitated (sometimes outright stolen) bass lines of Bernard Edwards; as producers,
they used keyboard and string embellishments economically, which kept the emphasis on
rhythm. Chic's distinctive approach not only resulted in some of the finest dance singles of
their time, but also helped create a template for urban funk, dance-pop, and even hip-hop
in the post-disco era. Not coincidentally, Rodgers and Edwards wound up as two of the most
successful producers of the '80s.
Rodgers and Edwards first met in 1970, when both were jazz-trained musicians fresh out of
high school. Edwards had attended New York's High School for the Performing Arts and was
working in a Bronx post office at the time, while Rodgers' early career also included stints in
the folk group New World Rising and the Apollo Theater house orchestra. Around 1972,
Rodgers and Edwards formed a jazz-rock fusion group called the Big Apple Band. This outfit
moonlighted as a backup band, touring behind smooth soul vocal group New York City in the
wake of their 1973 hit "I'm Doin' Fine Now." After New York City broke up, the Big Apple Band
hit the road with Carol Douglas for a few months, and Rodgers and Edwards decided to make
a go of it on their own toward the end of 1976. At first they switched their aspirations from
fusion to new wave, briefly performing as Allah & the Knife Wielding Punks, but quickly settled
into dance music. They enlisted onetime LaBelle drummer Tony Thompson and female vocalists
Norma Jean Wright and Alfa Anderson, and changed their name to Chic in summer
1977 so as to avoid confusion with Walter Murphy & the Big Apple Band
(who'd just hit big with "A Fifth of Beethoven").
Augmented in the studio by keyboardists Raymond Jones and Rob Sabino, Chic recorded
the demo single "Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)" and shopped it around
to several major record companies, all of which declined it. The small Buddah label finally
released it as a 12" in late 1977, and as its club popularity exploded, Atlantic stepped in,
signed the group, and re-released the single on a wider basis. "Dance, Dance, Dance"
hit the Top Ten, peaking at number six, and made Chic one of the hottest new groups in disco.
Chic scrambled to put together their self-titled first album, which spawned a minor follow-up hit,
"Everybody Dance," in early 1978. At this point, Wright left to try her hand at a solo career
(with assistance from Rodgers and Edwards), and was replaced by Luci Martin.
It was a good time to come onboard; "Le Freak," the first single from sophomore album
C'est Chic, was an out-of-the-box smash, spending five weeks on top of the charts toward
the end of 1978 and selling over four-million copies (which made it the biggest-selling single
in Atlantic's history). Follow-up "I Want Your Love" reached number seven, cementing the
group's new star status, and C'est Chic became one of the rare disco albums to go platinum.
1979's Risqué was another solidly constructed LP that also went platinum, partly on the
strength of Chic's second number one pop hit, "Good Times." "Good Times" may not have
equaled the blockbuster sales figures of "Le Freak," but it was the band's most imitated track:
Queen's number one hit "Another One Bites the Dust" was a clear rewrite, and the Sugarhill
Gang lifted the instrumental backing track wholesale for the first commercial rap single,
"Rapper's Delight," marking the first of many times that Chic grooves would be recycled
into hip-hop records. Also in 1979, Rodgers and Edwards took on their first major outside
production assignment, producing and writing the Sister Sledge smashes "We Are Family"
and the oft-sampled "He's the Greatest Dancer." This success, in turn, landed them the chance
to work with Diana Ross on 1980's Diana album, and they wrote and produced "Upside Down,"
her first number one hit in years, as well as "I'm Coming Out."
The disco fad was fading rapidly by that point, however, and 1980's Real People failed to go
gold despite another solid performance by the band. Changing tastes put an end to Chic's heyday,
as Rodgers and Edwards' outside production work soon grew far more lucrative, even despite
aborted projects with Aretha Franklin and Johnny Mathis. Several more Chic LPs followed in the
early '80s, with diminishing creative and commercial returns, and Rodgers and Edwards disbanded
the group after completing the lackluster Believer in 1983. Later that year, both recorded solo LPs
that sank without a trace. Hungry for acceptance and respect in the rock mainstream (especially after
accusations that they had ripped off Queen instead of the other way around), both Rodgers and
Edwards sought out high-profile production and session work over the rest of the decade. Rodgers
produced blockbuster albums like David Bowie's Let's Dance, Madonna's Like a Virgin, and
Mick Jagger's She's the Boss. Edwards wasn't as prolific as a producer, but did join the one-off
supergroup the Power Station along with Tony Thompson as well as Robert Palmer and members
of avowed Chic fans Duran Duran; he later produced Palmer's commercial breakthrough, Riptide.
Edwards also worked with Rod Stewart (Out of Order), Jody Watley, and Tina Turner, while Rodgers'
other credits include the Thompson Twins, the Vaughan Brothers, INXS,
and the B-52's' comeback Cosmic Thing.
Rodgers and Edwards re-formed Chic in 1992 with new vocalists Sylver Logan Sharp and
Jenn Thomas, and an assortment of session drummers in Thompson's place; they toured and
released a new album, Chic-ism. In 1996, the reconstituted Chic embarked on a tour of Japan;
sadly, on April 18, Edwards passed away in his Tokyo hotel room due to a severe bout of pneumonia.
Rodgers continued to tour occasionally with a version of Chic, and, in 1999, his Sumthing Else label
issued a recording of Edwards' final performance with the band, Live at the Budokan.
Box Set Review (c/o Amazon)
In preparation for over 10 years, but now it's finally here. The offically Chic box set,
teasingly titled 'volume 1', lives quite easily up to its anticipations it gathered over
the last decade. To be more precise; this box set is a dream come true. 4 cd's jam-packed
with all the glorious stuff that mrs Edward & Rodgers released upon us from the late 70's
untill the early 80's. They are all here in excellent mastered quality and all in their most
striking form, appearing at 12" or at album lenght. Mr Rodgers also has thrown in some
suprises; unreleased tracks by Fonzi Thornton and Chic, unreleased long version of tracks
by Norma Jean and Fonzi Thornton and some studio outtakes. All excellent stuff.
An even bigger treat in this box set, are 5 exclusive remixes by Dimitri from Paris.
Having access to the original multi-tracks Dimitri works his magic on Norma Jean's
'Saturday night' (a 10 minute 'goose- bumping' symphony), Chic's 'I want your love'
and later days 'I feel your love coming on' and Sister Sledges 'Thinking of you' and
'Lost in music' (where Kathy Sledges vocal ad libs at the end of the original, appear
as new vocals in this version; quite brilliant!).And then there are 3 tracks from the
-as yet- unreleased Johnny Mathis album.
Strangely, this box set is not released internationally(as it most certainly deserves),
but only domestically in France. The emphasis on this box set is purely on the music,
as it should. It is the compilation to end all previous compilations. It's a masterpiece. Period!
