Chris Clavin (born Christopher Johnston) is a musician and record label owner from Indiana with a strict DIY (do-it-yourself) punk ethic. He has been involved in numerous punk bands, and runs Plan-It-X Records, a label founded in 1994. When Clavin first started releasing solo songs, he did not want his typical moniker attached to them. Spoonboy (of The Max Levine Ensemble) gave him the name Captain Chaos. Though Clavin did not like the name, it stuck.
