Shindig Review

Jeanette Leech review at Shindig Magazine:

CAEDMON was one of the original ultra-obscure acid folk acts; one private press album, released in ’78, and nothing thereafter. The rediscovery and re-evaluation of their album has inspired Caedmon to regroup and the result is ‘A Chicken to Hug’ (self released). With stunning opener ‘Peace in the Fire’ it’s almost as if the album was released one, not 32, years later, with its acoustic tartness and piercing vocals. However, it’s not a sustained mood, and elsewhere there are rockier, more conventional songs, albeit with appealing peeks of folk weirdness.

Peeks or peaks?
