Aspirin Feast/Chicken split 7" / Chicken 7"
Aspirin Feast is one of the better bands that came out in the late 80's. the late 80's & early 90's were a desperate time when it comes to hardcore.
The 'cop-friendly' band released the 'Police Beat' 7" on French label Urban Alert. Their demo which is their first recording appeared on the 'How Do You Call The Cops On The Cops' 7" released a few years later. The band split up in 1992. Guitarplayer Tim and bassplayer Jim started Chicken. Jim does vocals in this band. Mike and Joe started Laceration.
Chicken did one 7" on their own Pot Pie Records in 1992. Don't be put off by their silly name and artwork, it's decent stuff.
Outcast Records released a posthumous split 7" of both bands in 1997. Each band has one song on each side.
If you like Aspirin Feast, you'll like Chicken as well. Although longer songs and slower tempo than Aspirin Feast, they still have the same aggressive touch.
Both Aspirin Feast 7"s can be found on Lo-Res Viscera here.
I'm going to post the 'Superhits Volume 1' comp. 7" very soon which has 2 more Aspirin Feast tracks.
