10 Questions we ask every band...
Crow Black Chicken
1). What are the names of your members?
Christy O Hanlon- Guitar & Vocals, Stephen McGrath- Bass, Gev Barrett - Drums
2). When did you all get together?
3). How did you all meet?
Christy was drafted in as the singer for a blues cover band myself (Stephen) and my college lecturer where forming. A heated argument between the band after a gig ended in month long hiatus. After this month I (Stephen) sent a group txt to announce practice, Gev and Christy only showed up and thus Crow Black Chicken came in existence.
4). How would you describe your music?
We would like to describe it as “Progressive Blues/Rock” but others call it “Swamp Rock”
5). Who are your major influences?
6). Complete the sentence: One day as a band we hope to…
tour like mad men playing everywhere that has music fans who want to go to a show and come home sweating.
7). Why should people listen to your music?
People think there hasn’t been a blues rock album worth listening to since the seventies were here to disprove that.
8). What are your plans for the upcoming year?
Album will be out in April. Planning on touring Ireland/ England and maybe elsewhere in Europe while also playing as many festivals as possible
9). What albums/EP’s have you released so far and where can people get hold of them?
One ep “Organic” from 2009 and we have the first single from the album. Zombie productions made a music video for it which were very proud of check it out!!

10). Finally – say something profound that will make everyone think:
“The aim of life is self-development. To realize one's nature
perfectly - that is what each of us is here for.” Oscor Wilde
Were not getting any way arty here!!! This just basically sums up the
bands mantra. The three of us have said the day we stagnate we will
call it a day.
