Barely seven months after the release of the debut (self-titled) album, Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk return with Shakedown, their second swinging expedition deep into the hypnotic boogie of Northern Mississippi juke joints. Cementing their reputation as the hardest working blues combo in the country, 2013 has already seen Chicken Walk receive the famed golden boot at Golden Plains, tour the nation twice with Tony Joe White and Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes, as well as share stages with everyone from Jimmy Cliff to Santana to Gary Clark Jr. Effortlessly charged, Shakedown finds Chicken Walk delivering a richer, fuller sound and more exploratory songwriting. The hard-luck baladeering of ‘Someday My Sun Gonna Shine’ provides a tender counterpoint to the driving, elemental crowd favourites ‘(Somebody Call The) Po’Po’’ and ‘Bad Motherfucker’, whilst still displaying all the charm and wit synonymous with a Chicken Walk live show.

“four and a half stars”, Martin Boulton, The Age EG “If these guys were from South Chicago instead of St. Kilda, they would probably be signed to Alligator Records and hailed as the next Black Keys” – Jeff Glorfield, The Age "Chicken Walk is equally at home in a back Mississippi juke joint and a back-alley Melbourne bar and I know 'cause I've seen the Chicken fly in both of 'em. It's dirty music, buried up to the neck in Mississippi mud and empty VB tins. It'll make you holler and moan and get down with your bad self." - Matt Frederick, PBSfm
