Happy Birthday Us! By Moog and Squirrel at 22:45 on 31 July 2005
It's been a year since this site opened its doors to the public, which is hard for us to believe. A lot has happened to Chikinki over that time, but we firmly believe that the band are on their way to the top - even with the odd hiccup on the way there. The guys are heading into the studio in a couple of weeks and we can't wait to hear the results.

And what of this site? Well, there's still loads of stuff we've got planned to add. We'd hoped it would be there by now, but please bear with us - we'll get around to it sooner or later! As always we're after your comments, so give us a yell if you've got any - or just want to say hi!

Time to go and blow out our candle! xx
