MEN ARE DEAD, MEN ARE GONE, BUT SOME CHICKN CARRIED ON”

Chinkn’s Aleppo sounds like a lost Aphrodite Child demo dipped in classic rock fanaticism.

Chickn is a modular music group formed during the Christmas holidays of 2012 in Athens, Greece. They recorded their first demo in the summer of 2013, when they obtained their current form. Chickn are Angelos Krallis (vocals, guitars, lute, ,tsambouna, udu), Evangelos Aslanides (drums, percussion, djembe, darbuka, bendir) and Pantelis Karasevdas (drums, percussion, congas, djembe).

Chicken’s debut, self-titled, LP will be out 10/10/16 on Inner Ear Records. This is a radio zapping on a 68-minute car drive. This is a field unfolding in front of your very eyes and at the same time a call of wandering. This is an attempt of some people to invent themselves through playing. This is Jetztzeit rock. A sound conceived as jump in the free sky of history.
