“They steam through their rock- solid wall of future hits with a rare, magnetic natural stage charisma” NME

“With the combination of their incendiary sonic-assault shows, their professorial keyboard genius and a singer who dares to be Mick Jagger, these Bristol boys could truly return the word ‘Progressive’ for describing UK bands” The Face

“ Smells like the future of rock ‘n’ roll” The Fly

Bristols squelch beat noise-niks Chikinki release ‘Like It Or Leave It’ through the Island Records Group on 8th March 2004. Following on from the NME runner-up single of the week single ‘Assassinator 13.’

Chance and destiny threw all five members of Chikinki together (Rupert Browne (vocals), Steve Bond (drums), Ed East (guitar), Boris (keyboards) and Trevor Wensley (keyboards) in Bristol in the late 1990s. Arriving from the scattered corners of Britain, they ended up sharing a house in the city's Bedminster district. Chikinki Heights remains the band's nerve centre, home base and DIY recording studio.

Chikinki's debut album for Island Records is due for release in May 2004. A triple-decker Scooby Snack of infectious cheek, raw emotion and electrifying innovation, it was recorded with renowned producer Steve Osborne (U2/New Order), then mixed in London by the equally respected Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode/Smashing Pumpkins).
