Biography

Formed in Spring of 08, Slang Chickens have rapidly become one of the more endearing and enticing young bands to come out of Los Angeles in a long while. In just one years time, they have traveled on both the West and East coasts, sharing the stage with contemporaries such as Jay Reatard, Sleepy Sun, Crystal Antlers, the Strange Boys, The Night Marchers, and Joe Lally (of Fugazi)

The Chickens (as their friends call them) take influence from bands as diverse and contradictory as The Gun Club, X, Devo, Neil Young, Everly Brothers, Mississippi John Hurt, Flying Burrito Bros., and Pavement. Slang Chickens have assertively created a jubilant fornication of these artists who brought them together. But more than this, they have synthesized a unique sound utilizing electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, and lapsteel, that is as equally familiar and home-style comfortable as it is fresh. They have proven to be a wonderful contradiction. Their full-length debut was recorded at various houses and studios in Los Angeles and will be released by the budding Psychedelic Judaism label by August 2009
