[Five poems, circa 1979]

Comidas, Chinas. [Five poems, circa 1979]. A pamphlet (7"x4.75") consisting of a single tri-fold sheet of five poems by Chinas Comidas, the pen name of Cynthia Genser (later Cynthia Kraman), who was the lyricist and lead singer for the late-70s Seattle punk band of the same name. All five of these poems served double duty as lyrics for Chinas Comidas songs, none of which made it onto the band's two official EPs, but were eventually included on the 2006 compilation "Chinas Comidas: Live and Studio Recordings 1977-1980." This undated chapbook was presumably produced at some point during the band's tenure, though we can find no record of its existence online. Genser used the "Chinas Comidas" pen name for at least a couple of years, self-publishing a chapbook, "Cowboys," under that name in 1978, before reverting to Cynthia Genser as the band gained recognition. This publication uses the band logo which, according to a useful if somewhat disjointed history of the band on the Jive Time Records website, Genser herself designed. An interesting piece of Pacific Northwest musical history.
