It’s been 3 months since Kansai based Chikan Chef released their latest album ‘Bitches BBQ’, and to celebrate they have released a film clip for a second single and made the full album available on all streaming services!
Recorded in May/June of 2020 when the band found themselves locked down in Australia, they were lucky to have the opportunity to record at The Pet Food Factory with Jay Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb / Neptune Power Federation), get the record mastered by Clem Bennet (sound engineer for Arch Enemy) and receive the services of artist extraordinaire Glenno (Chinese Burns Unit) for the album art.
The band were also able to get their good friend from legendary Osaka hardcore band Palm, Toshi Takahashi, to sing guest vocals on the album. Toshi goes all out on the 59 second hardcore track ‘Dibber Dobber Dog Cunt’.
‘Bitches BBQ’ features 13 blistering songs that take you on a breakneck journey of wild grind, punk and hardcore riffs and covers everything from raving with crabs to running away from the Chinese police, all in under 9 minutes. The crab rave features in the latest single ‘Barnacle’, with an Official Music Video filmed, directed and edited by fujicofilm. No stranger to the bizarre, fujicofilm has filmed Chikan Chef live, made a calendar for them, and documents the Osaka and Tokyo underground.
