Frank Chickens initially found fame in the late 80’s as a kimono and cardboard clad duo scoring a chart hit with the classic single “We are Ninja – No Geisha!”, they toured with the likes of Billy Bragg and The Smiths and headlined their own shows around the world!
They were regulars & favourites of DJ John Peel, recording several radio sessions for him and appearing in his famous & fondly remembered Festive 50. A Channel 4 series followed with a Perrier nomination at Edinburgh festival not far behind. Later Ninja Tunes released a remix album of Chickens favourites, Universal featured them on a best selling compilation and thanks to a Stewart Lee's drunken late night internet rant Frank Chickens found themselves the unexpected but deserving winners of The Edinburgh Festival Comedy Gods Award!
The Chickens are still going strong, recently performing at Royal Opera House, Hackney Empire & Duckie at RVT.
