Archive Alex Chilton set primed for release

Electricity by Candlelight captures a special gig by Alex Chilton back in February 1997 at The Knitting Factory, New York.

On the night in question, the club's power failed and refunds were issued to fans. A few fans hung around and Chilton borrowed an acoustic guitar and played for an hour to those still there. The event was caught on tape by one of those fans.

The album is issued by Bar None on 21st October.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
