about

"CHIK WHITE is the recording alias of Darcy Spidle, star and co-writer of the Canadian cult film, Lowlife, and the guy behind Canadian indie institution Divorce Records. Playing almost like a possible alternative soundtrack to Lowlife, I Am Muck sucks you into a starfish licking world of bizarr0 psych improvisations and avant soundscapes created from “experimental jews harp and acoustic guitar” (that’s how Darcy sold me on the project but there’s other instruments and objects involved too). Exciting and fearless stream of consciousness music/noise/sound making—like the wind and tides blowing and flowing." Arachnidiscs

"The music of Chik White takes the crudest elements of American folk as a base for his muddy improvisations that find their muttered, salt-marsh-soul somewhere between Bill Orcutt and Jandek’s acoustics with accompaniment by a junkyard orchestra of Jew’s harp and kitchen-sink-percussion." Weird Canada
