Is There a Missing Churchigo EP?
Tue., Aug. 29. 2017 7:20am EDT

We received the following email on Tuesday from a fan in Canada:

If this new EP is Churchigo III, what happened to Churchigo II? I swear when I obtained the red album from your site that it said it was Churchigo. But when I did a search online to try and find Churchigo II, it listed the red album as such.

If that's the case, if the red album is Churchigo II, then what happened to Churchigo I? You can't have a II without a I, and you can't have a III without a II or a I. The only other EP from NCC is Transformed Soul. So where's the missing Churchigo EP and how can I obtain a copy of it?

Sincerely,
Timothy
Many of you may have the same question, so we'll share with you what ApX lead singer and lyricist J. Jackson wrote in response to Timothy:
There's no missing Churchigo album. The first one was Churchigo II. It's a pun; Churchigo II is pronounced the same as "Church I go to." The recordings were from the "church I go to," which is New Community Church in Wexford PA. Also, there were two songs, so the II also referred to that.

The cover just says Churchigo, but we've called it Churchigo II from the time we introduced it to fans in September 2013. When Chicago put out their albums, they rarely if ever put the Roman numerals next to the name on the cover.

In fact, their second album, which is known as Chicago II, didn't say Chicago II on it. It was just called Chicago, because their first album was called Chicago Transit Authority, but they were forced to shorten their name by the real governmental agency called Chicago Transit Authority.

Then, after Chicago put out that second album simply titled Chicago (which everyone refers to as "Chicago II"), they officially called their next (and third) album Chicago III. And every album after that had the numeral after it until their 12th album, Hot Streets. They they went back to Roman numerals after that and called their 13th album Chicago 13.

And there you have it! Sorry for any confusion.
