2005 release. Trio from Sheffield, England of slide guitar/vocals, upright bass & drums. Cover art by Billy Childish. Liner notes by Mick Farren of The Deviants. "Bee-stung guitar, vocals dug up in some gravel pit, Chicken Legs Weaver create some of the most feverishly destroyed R'n'B in recent memory..." --Byron Coley, Arthur magazine. "The Debut Album Nowhere [produced by Johnny Dowd] has a timeless, stateless feel -- equally redolent of dingy northern cities and the plains of middle America... essentially, this is international blues of the very highest calibre." --Joe Cushley, Blues Matters magazine/Balling the Jack on Resonance FM 104.4. "Clearly the best band the UK has produced in a while..." --Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth. "Hard times, lost loves, missed connections and dangerous visions, common to all, concealed from none, but each murderously twisted to the tenor of the times. Too true to be any easy, diamond-ring tall-shucking tale -- and too good to be ignored by those who know the shouts and moans -- the howling of the mighty Wolf and the graveling of the exalted Captain -- and all the rest who have moved, red-eyed, in from the special places where the brain and the heart and the hand strike the ever-particular smokestack-sparks -- and the words that make strong men weep, women wail, and policeman turn in their badges. Cheap gin will make you blind, but the clear truth will never fail you. The blues will set you free....Chicken Legs Weaver play the blues -- and plays it right, right? Not a bad one in the barrel. So help me, Hannah." --Mick Farren
