WOWSERS! with CHICKN - An Interview

Vai uma garageira psicodelicamente glam aí?

Bem, o que os gregos do CHICKN te ofertam é basicamente isso, e acrescente diversão, barulho e tudo que esta envolto a tudo isso.

"WOWSERS!", novíssimo álbum dos caras é uma esbórnia, com os fantasmas de Iggy, Bowie e outros eternos, o CHICKN vai fundo na ferida, pura diversão em formas sonoras.

Agora, se os reclamações de plantão acharem que é algo datado ou coisa que o valha, o TBTCI aconselha, vai procurar um asilo, porque diversão é sempre bem vinda, e com o CHICKN tem de sobra.

Depois de ler isso, desligue seu computador, mas antes grave "WOWSERS!" e vá se divertir meu camarada.

***** Interview with CHICKN *****

Q. When did CHICKN begin? Tell us about the history...
CHICKN begun in a cold December's night. It all started as a joke, as it always starts but it instantly started to grow solid and massive. It made clear really fast that it will stay for a while.

Q: Who are your influences?
All of our influences co-exist in what we call our strange meeting-room. It's a room where our influences sit and discuss, Everything and anything can sit on a chair in this room
and please let's avoid the usual name dropping. What really matters is the conversation pieces and we never run out of this stuff.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Hah, no such thing. I'll give you though the 5 last records I spinned on my turn able:

David Bowie - The man who sold the world
Tim Hardin - 4
Suzanne Ciani - Buchla Concerts
Aksak Maboul - Onze Dances pour combattre la migraine
Moondog - Moondog

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Like burning from the inside.

Q. How do you describe CHICKN´s sounds?
We have a greek idiom about the sound we have adopted that roughly translates to "shaving sound". Other descriptive words would be "shiny", "trippy", and who could forget "three-fuzzes-in-a-row".

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
When we have a clear image about a song, it is time to bring it to life. The process is nothing more than sculpting. Performing and recording songs actually belong in the field
of sculpture. No doubt about that.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Let's say "hi" to 4 bands:
Devamp Javu
To koritsi koimatai
Soft Skull
Hand and Leg

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Oh, that has happened too much. We cover songs all the time both in rehearsals and gigs, so I do not have anything specific from the top of my head. Let's say I would love to cover Area's "Cometa Rossa". That would be nice.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are planning our next two releases right now and an European tour for October 2018.

Q: Any parting words?
From all us CHICKN, please keep yourselves hydrated during hot summer days.
