Chicken Lips - Show Your Shape

Well, what can I say? I'm tired, and you probably already know what Chicken Lips sound like. You also probably have a good idea of whether you need this 'best of' compilation or not: if you're an ardent fan you do cos there's a few different unreleased mixes, if you're a bit of a fan but not obsessive you probably don't cos you've got most of what's here already, if you like them but have never bought much of their stuff then you probably do cos all the best bits are here, and if you think they smell of wee then you probably don't cos, like, you think they smell of wee.

Me, I quite like Chicken Lips, but not obsessively, so I'm personally very happy to have all the best bits in one place. And as with last year's Freaks 'best of', it's striking how current much of what's here sounds – compared to how futuristic and out-there it sounded when it was first released. Good bit of paradigm-shifting there, lads. And He Not In is still a great record. As is Wind Ya Neck In. As are, well, lots of the tracks here.

Out: This week, y'see, so just thought you might like to know.

About: This is on Tirk, as so many things covered on this blog are. Here's their website, though it doesn't look like it's been updated for a while, so here's the Chicken Lips MySpace as well and, just for good measure or anyone who's just come in, here's what Wikipedia has to say about 'em.
