CROW BLACK CHICKEN
Since forming in 2009, Crow Black Chicken have earned back-pats aplenty for their charming Southern sound, most notably after their performance on the BBC Introductory Stage at Glastonbury in 2011. Their debut album Electric Soup, released in June 2012, typifies this positive energy with 13 tracks of tooth-rattling rhythms and bluesy rock’n roll vibes. Upon the release of Electric Soup, the Tippeary-based trio have won the adoration of many, playing major festivals and countless venues across the country in 2012. With extended invitations to play USA, UK and Europe in Summer 2013, there’s never been a better time to catch Crow Black Chicken live.
“Fans of Cream, Rory Gallagher and all things classic rock will adore this assured debut. Electric Soup is the real deal.” – Hotpress Magazine
“It’s not often these days for a band to lay down a complete track as a ‘take’ but that’s exactly the approach taken by Crow Black Chicken. This is a very honest album with a lot of feel and solid playing throughout and is a strong promise of things to come.” Guitar Techniques.
“This prog – blues outfit hailing from Cork clocked up almost 100 gigs last year including their first appearance at Glastonbury, on the BBC introducing stage. The long bearded trio have been described as “an Irish ZZ top” and there’s the inevitable references to fellow countryman Rory Gallagher. However with their debut album Electric Soup the band shows steely intention to throw away comparisons and make their own mark.” Classic Rock Blues Magazine
