MEN ARE DEAD
MEN ARE GONE
BUT SOME CHICKN CARRIED ON
Chickn’s self-titled debut album is finally out! 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.

The album was composed by the Athens-based trio in Athens and Valencia from fragments of many years during the period 2014-2015. It was recorded from July to October 2015 in Sonic Playground Studio and in Iraklis Vlachakis’ home in Athens. The album was produced by Chickn and Nikos Triantafyllou and it was mastered by Alan Douches in West West Side Studios in New York.

Chickn are:
Angelos Krallis, Evangelos Aslanides, Pantelis Karasevdas

Personnel appearing on this album:
Sir Kosmiche (bass), Konstantinos Protopappas (electric guitar), Haris Neilas (darbuka, congas, cowbell), Andreas Kiltsiksis (oud, amanes), Prins Obi (additional synths, additional vocals), King Elephant (saxophone), Nikos Triantafyllou & Iraklis Vlachakis (engineering)

Track Name: Chickn Tribe
Men are dead
men are gone
but some chicken carried on.
Greedy birds
that can't fly
through their living learned to die

If they find you and you try to get away
or disobey, they're gonna love you
Track Name: Omens
I blink my eyes to enclose the weather
that as it comes for sure it'll go
and as a fragile lightweight feather
I'll forget all the things I saw
Track Name: Aleppo / Jam
If I could reach the towering sky
I'd spread my wings and fly
without to say goodbye
to my old life

I'd try to find a better home
and build a comfort zone
that it will not be blown away
I'd try to stay

Till then I rest with my mouth sewn
embracing the unknown
they think I'm just a bone
into a hunger game
they think I'm tame

If they keep stepping on my paws
I'll pull my giant claws
I'll feed them to my jaws
because I have a cause
Track Name: Modular Prayer
Whilst my life is full of sorrow
and my joy is full of tears
though there's no love for tomorrow
and no eager volunteers

I will burn my old leftovers
to be sure the spring will come
I will keep it on my shoulders
and I pray to overcome

Apologies now do mean nothing
and it's a long time since I swooned
my compunction won't stop gushing
so I'll crawl up to lick my wounds
Track Name: Taqsim / Rhy / Tavk Hava
Rhy is a girl that never has been
to all those places that do lie within
patterns and caverns and deep rabbit holes
darkling dimmed regions that no one controls

Don't worry Rhy and stand by my side
into this weather together we glide
from highest tides to the lowest of ebbs
the seed has been planted deep into our heads
Track Name: Forget / Small Things
Every day mourns its fucking past
and all together fall and crush my life
I've never really thought of what to ask
or how I'm going to end this burning stiff

Forget
Regret
Upset
As yet

There are no money passing from my hands
and all the things I hear have no import
I have a constant fear that withstands
that soon enough I'm going to fall short
Track Name: Articulation
The blossoms often wither
(and will continue to do so)
until we invent a language
that hangmen do not speak

Pain has the right to be expressed
with a voice that can pass through speechlessness
An articulation
(a joint between bodies and sentences)

When you want to speak for the colour of the sea bed
but the surface hinders
Swatter the precipitate and see how that will help

Until all the dissonant voices reach a pharyngeal consonant
until we reach the realm of the pure sound

ooh ooooooh don't you weep!

I've lived more than I'm able to express
Track Name: Modular Prayer (Reprise)
Whilst my life is full of sorrow
and my joy is full of tears
though there's no love for tomorrow
and no eager volunteers

I will burn my old leftovers
to be sure the spring will come
I will keep it on my shoulders
and I pray to overcome

Apologies now do mean nothing
and it's a long time since I swooned
my compunction won't stop gushing
so I'll crawl up to lick my wounds
Track Name: Shifting Time Blues / Akhedia
I met her underwater
in the deepest secret sea
she took me for a ride
she had something to hide
it's the shifting time blues

The sweetness in her water
the bitters in her tears
she hanged out with others
a million of lovers
It's the shifting time blues

The days are ying over
my burden goes away
and even if I don't think of Mary
my bones won't stop been oh so weary
from the shifting time blues

Raunchy girl, weep beguiled
