Living in the big smoke is one hell of a pain in the arse. People will spit on you for wearing a Total Control t-shirt instead of a 9-5 attire, and the coffee sucks.
That’s why Chook Race’s new pop song about not having time for someone seems a perfect fit for this haphazard lifestyle. Not only are the lyrics 10/10, but the music here is the sort of crimson sighing perfection that makes you want to move to town with a silly name like Dunedoo, or Melbourne. Having a band that’s so rock n roll they can switch instruments at the drop of a hat and still keep in time with the music is pretty cool too.
Chook Race are playing in Sydney on February 20th at the Seymour Centre, and February 21st at Black Wire Records with Nathan Roche, Weak Boys and Jack Lee.
