Burnside Album Details
Chicken Legs Weaver, Nowhere
With the admonishing wrath of a fallen preacher, Andy Weaver rasps out the dark and guilty secrets of the abandoned. As the apocalyptic thunder of Jane Howden (bass) and Mik Glaisher (ex-Comsat Angels, drums) crashes around him, Weaver wrenches the tortured screams of lost souls from his guitar. This is music wrought from blood and bone, concrete and steel, an inner-city voodoo for the disposed and forgotten. Drawing a crazed bead from Charlie Patton, through Howlin’ Wolf, Beefheart and the likes of Jon Spencer, the White Stripes and the Black Keys, Chicken Legs Weaver create their own mashed-up brand of God-fearing, gospel-soaked punk. This is not mainstream, this is…timeless. Johnny Dowd invited the band to record their debut album at his studio in Ithaca, New York. Nowhere was recorded in a studio resembling a log cabin, in the worst blizzards the state had seen for 16 years and as America went to war.
