ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chinas Comidas was a Seattle area band during the late 70's. The band released two singles on their own Exquisite Corpse label. They were amongst the first Seattle bands to break into the urban club scene in the late 70's that had previously been exclusively bar bands and cover bands. This was the beginning of the Seattle Punk scene. Chinas opened twice for the Ramones, toured the east coast with the Dead Kennedys and performed in San Francisco at the Mabuhay Gardens and in L.A. at the Hong Kong Cafe, Whiskey A GoGo and many other clubs. Chinas first L.A. gig was with the Germs at the Hong Kong and they did gigs with Black Flag, Red Cross, Fear, Dils, Doa, The Bags and Johanna Went. The band was written about in Slash Magazine, Search and Destroy and New York Rocker. In Seattle the band was controversial with a lot of avid fans and avid enemies. These recordings range from live cassette mixes and 4 track rehearsal recordings to 16 track studio recordings. To find out more about the band please visit our website: www.chinascomidas.com

"How Far Could I Go If I Really Let Go?"
This is out of this world. Who are these people? I found this CD by chance. I love the writing--really savvy, sassy and the right mix of loose-limbed punk ethos and brainy, subtle structure to hold it together. Strong songs fronted by a sultry vocalist. The first song will have you swearing you thrashed and trashed your room to it just last weekend. Hot stuff.

Julio Vargas of Criss Evrett


Wow. I was really blown away by this cd. especially the controversial takes on issues of that time. vaguely reminds me of the velvet underground. very very good!

super reviewer

one word: totallyawsome
Now i know it said these guys toured with black flag, FEAR, Germs and all them hardcore bands. This is NOT a hardcore band, more along the lines of The Clash, and i mean that in the best way possible. Chinas Comidas must have been ahead of their time, because their lyrics are deep meaningful and like nothing else to this date.
