Spaghetti western post-punk from Vienna, Austria. debut out April 20th… Chick Quest


Listened to these songs this morning and wanted to share them with all of you. Very cool music, eclectic , nice beat, full of surf guitars and then switching to some sweet post-punk you can feel the rock energy, love the horns! I’ll do a Meet The Band with Chick Quest in the near future but you should listen to them now, good stuff……Maybe a new Category….Band Of The Day….

and for my Friends who run their own Record Labels, listen to Chick Quest…

Chick Quest’s debut album Vs. Galore will be released independently to the public via digital download on April 20th, 2015. They are currently searching for a supportive, energetic label while they book their summer tour.

Spaghetti Western Rock and Roll Dance Party from Vienna, Austria? Chick Quest’s new debut record, Vs. Galore, is the sound of four people playing sweaty, explosive, danceable rock and roll built on creativity and fun— trumpet and all. It’s feeling the floorboards bounce while dancing to Violent Femmes in a crowded house at 3am, not trying to show people how “hard you rock” for the umpteenth time.

The initial concept behind Chick Quest was to combine chord progressions from old 60’s Italian Western film scores, such as work by Ennio Morricone, with the dancey post-punk of the late 70’s and early 80’s like Talking Heads or The Clash. Ryan White, an American expat from Athens, Georgia, now living in Vienna, Austria, began the project with his Austrian friend, Iris Rauh, in early 2014. Their original goal was to create a live dance party for their friends in small clubs, playing music they like to dance to and can’t usually find in Vienna. They completed the line-up with Magdalena Kraev, also Austrian, by mid-2014. Their original “dance party” idea eventually blossomed into bigger shows and a debut record
