The ‘Chicken’ EP is Mushi Mushi’s debut EP, and its four tracks of beat-heavy, woozy, smoozy, moody, bluesy slabs of small wonder; each of which are sliced, diced and spliced like two hours of a John Peel shows condensed into two minutes, smashing the unsuspecting listener right in the fucking face like a sledgehammer. The Mushi's machine-gun electronic sound avoids any categorisation, but has nonetheless gained support from Steve Lamacq, The Wire magazine, BBC Radio 3’s Mixing It.
Mushi Mushi: the missing link between Client and Devo, between Fugazi and the Chemical Brothers, between Man Or Astroman? and Add N to (X)? It really shouldn't work but it does. And brilliantly so.
