The musical mystery of Chainmale

There's surprisingly little information on the enigmatic artist known as Chainmale. Pretty much everything I could find came from a Facebook fan page which had around twenty posts and hasn't had any activity in about a year.

In a nutshell, sometime in the mid 80's Chainmale, aka Michael Freeland, released an album with the Australian record label Regular Records. Given his peculiar style and unique musical approach it isn't all that surprising he wasn't able to achieve mainstream success. It seems these videos are the only remains of Chainmale's electro-punk days, but they certainly are gems.
