Fungal Punk: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

A right bunch of cheeky fuckers here with an album to completely break down any critical codswallop and to bring forth a fervent fever of gushing praise from even the most hard boiled reviewer. Make no mistake about it, these squawking sonic shits are good, darn good indeed and really excite with their innuendoed sax fuelled rock that has an obsession with the thrills of fast food chomping. Hailing from London these dudes really do need to spread their wings and drop some sonic shit on the heads of the unaware, here is my small attempt at provocating some flapping motions.

Uber Rock: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

Sometimes you get a record to review and it just has you scratching your head wondering what the fuck have I just listened to. Well, lo and behold MFC Chicken has just done that as a chicken based album has just driven me cluckin' mad.
 
So with a retro swinging beat (well it is on Dirty Water Records after all) the music is delivered with aplomb and some of the sax playing is superb, but what's with the chicken based tunes, really?

Pure Rawk: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

If you're one of those old-skool garage fans who are waiting for King Salami and the Cumberland Three to put out their next album then I think I may have just found a quick temporty fix for you while we wait.  Also on the Dirty Water label, there's more than a passing resemblence between MFC Chicken and the aforementioned King Salami and co.  Except instead of being fixated on sausages, these guys, as their name suggests (they're named after a takeaway over in Holloway), have a bit of an obessession with chicken.  Seriously, if someone hasn't tried to link the two bands up on a 'sausages 'n' chicken' tour already then the matter relly needs to be rectified asap.

Bananas Fanzine: MFC Chicken - "Solid Gravy"

First off, you need to understand that there's usually a guy in a chicken suit at these guys' shows. At least that's what I gathered from a few videos. [PJ: It doesn't happen at every show. Maybe this reviewer saw ME dressed as a chicken on the video of the Funtastic Dracula Carnival from last year?] I think that imagining a guy in a chicken suit is going to help you to appreciate this album. Why?

Dig It!: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

The second delivery from these Londoners drive. by a singer and explosive saxophonist. They finally adopted a slogan-like self-awarded title: "Making the music the Sonics were listening to." It is a playground marked by Johnny & the Hurricanes and Little Richard wholesale, with a detour via a frantically plucked "Chicken Shack" by Amos Molburn.

Listen With Monger: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

Trying to explain the phenomenon that is MFC Chicken to the uninitiated is tantamount to arguing for the need to wear to tie with a man who doesn't own a shirt. I would assert, however, that there is a great need for MFC Chicken in this world than there is for the neck tie - although I'm sure the band would disagree as they are far snappier dressers than this humble blogger. This second Long Player from the London based, multi-national group is not a far stretch from their first but then again, if ain't broke why the hell fix it?

Ye Imp: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

Rock and Roll Bloodnok style! North London’s finest poultry obessed combo have released their second platter of inspired lunacy, and my what a greasy splattered platter it is. Recorded in beautifully mono and featuring sax so oily it should be scooped up, whacked on yer barnet and fashioned into a DA this is the first record that I’ve heard this year that does strange things to my internal organs.

1537: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

Okay boys and girls, I’m done with playing nice here.  I have previously extolled the virtues of MFC Chicken Music For Chicken to you, the 1537 Album of the Year for 2012* and it has come to my attention that some of you have not rushed out and bought it yet, even though it has a track on it called ‘Love (Is Gonna Fuck You Up)’.

Making Time: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

MFC Chicken, on the other hand, have titled SOLID GRAVY! to its record proposal, a already essential disc for fans and collectors of the Northwest sound and the original garage since MFC Chicken are sent to all wick in fourteen pieces of garage decorated with saxophone (as the first bands of garage) and with much influence of the scene of the North American coast the northwest.

xxvii4ever: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

Solid Gravy!, MFC Chicken’s second album, continues the odd but compelling amalgam of great old-style rock and roll with chicken-themed songs that they started with 2012’s Music For Chicken. Solid Gravy! is definitely old school rock and roll with only “Dirty Little Bitch” and “Well Now” escaping the orbit of the three minute mark so that songs like “Voodoo Chicken”  jump into the room, whirl around wildly with sax in front, and jump back out again at the 1:45 mark, leaving listeners gap-mouthed and staring.

The RingMaster Review: MFC Chicken "Solid Gravy!"

If their debut album Music for Chicken had feet and emotions exhausted from its unrelenting revelry and thrilling sounds then have paramedics on speed dial as its successor Solid Gravy is a much more voraciously devilish and creatively incendiary stomp. Created by UK band MFC Chicken, their new album just rampages through ears and passions like an insatiable cyclone of mischief and feverishly flavoured rock ‘n’ roll.
