Reviews

    The Frank Chickens were a sort of cabaret comedy funk outfit, fronted by two Japanese lasses going by the names of Kazuko Hohki and Kazumi Taguchi, backed by a couple of chaps playing the instruments called Steve Beresford and David Toop. They produced three albums in the mid to late 80s, the first of which, We Are Frank Chickens is very listenable. Get Chickenized, the second album, despite one or two highlights, plods along to nowhere in particular in a slight jazzy vein, and sadly I do not own a copy of the third. In the pre-internet age, knowledge of Japan was confined to old World at War re-runs, Kurosawa films and G-Force cartoons. It all seemed very oriental and exotic, as this slab of vinyl proves.
    WAFC is a very catchy, eclectic offering, with a mixture of English and Japanese vocals, with ever changing tempers and tempos. There a even sleeve notes (remember them) explaining all the Japanese references. It is a very polished affair, with lots of sing-along choruses.
    I did see them at Glastonbury in the Theatre tent back in 1986 and was frankly besotted. Expect to pay less than a tenner for this.
