Album Notes
THE GITS second studio album. It was completed just before the murder of singer, Mia Zapata. Enter: The Conquering Chicken is one of the most influential underground rock albums of the time. It has inspired artists like Joan Jett and Indigo Girls and Pearl Jam, Sleater Kinney, Le Tigre, Rancid and The Pinkos.

This album is a fresh release of The Git's second full length release. Singer Mia Zapata was murdered during the original mixing. This edition is remixed by famed (Nirvana) producer Jack Endino and re-mastered by John Golden. This is a passionate, melodic album featuring a great punk band cut down in their prime.

The Gits formed in 1986 in Yellow Springs Ohio and blossomed in Seattle until 1993. Mia Zapata was murdered in July of 1993. The killer was caught after a ten year man-hunt and is on trial in Seattle at the time of writing this bio.

Named my Daughter Mia
SAw em two times in early 90's. One of the best!
viva it all.




This is my first Gits CD, and I thought it was awesome. This band truly has a lot of talent. I wish the remaining members the best of luck in their future endeavors. A true talent was lost with the demise of their singer.


I found some tracks of this CD online and listened to them non-stop before getting the money to buy this record. It is simply amazing, the first CD I purchased in a LONG time where I can pop it into my CD player and let it play without skipping over any tracks. I can't wait to save up my money to buy their other records!


Mia's music brings me back to better days. Very inspiring, moving and very Coba

I can't believe they aren't better known
This was the cd that got me into the band, and the new version has re-envigorated my love for them, along with Frenching the Bully. This cd is like a mix of punk music, janis joplin's singing, and poety from the likes of frank o'hara and dylan thomas. The drinking song still blows me away. Buy this now. You won't be sorry.


Hard to believe that it takes a documentry about Mias death to push this band to the forefront of modern cult bands no doubt after the two albums i have heard Mia Zappata will live on with the likes of Jimi Hendrix Ian Curtis and even Bob Marley for her lyrics and her unique voice she makes your hair stand on end.BRILLIANT.

Thom Freeman

Great tunes by a great band! My favorite of their releases.
Love this disk even more than the rest of The Gits stuff. Really rocks but has some more memorable melodies too. Most all of my favorite Gits tunes are on this one.


One of the best CDs ever.
I've been sitting here for ten minutes trying to describe Mia's voice - it's special. The music is good and the live tracks make you wish you were there.


this album was amazing. i love it am proud to own it. the gits were one of the best bands ive ever heard. and has impacted my life....
