The Chickenhawk – some kind of predatory fowl, or a tasty bird of prey? The matter is unclear, however I really don’t think it’s important. The band themselves are a four-piece post-hardcore band from Leeds, and probably more likely named after the critical political epithet (“You’re a chickenhawk!” “Yeah, well yo momma’s a chickenhawk!”)…whatever that it.
They mash up a number of styles, and are pretty damn groovy. The following track is taken from their recent album Modern Bodies.
