Various Artists Chicken Lips: Clicks, Acid ‘N‘ Disco
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: Trust the DJ
There is something to be said for the unexpected, the shock of the new and the rare. Of course, there is also something to be said for getting exactly what you came for. And when it comes to Chicken Lips, that‘s all you get. While it could surely be argued that the UK trio threatens to bury themselves in a pile of homogeneous late ‘70s/early ‘80s powder funk, when they‘re on their game, they‘re hard to knock. Here selecting choice mixes-Putsch 79‘s remix of Nick Chacona, Zongamin‘s mix of Cut Copy, and their own brilliant acid working of Headman‘s "It‘s Rough," to name a few-head Lip Steve Kotey has delivered their best mix yet.
