Chin Chin - We Don't Wanna Be Prisoners 7" (Mississippi Records)

"From Biel Switzerland comes this little known group. One of the few all-girl bands (along with Kleenex/Lilliput) to come out of the early '80s Swiss punk scene. Chin Chin definitely considered themselves a punk band. Although their catchy pop vocals and harmonies strongly align them with the burgeoning C86 scene. They shared bills with The Shop Assistants, Television Personalities, The Pogues and New Model Army, before the band drifted into obscurity. This 7" was originally released in 1984 on the band's own, Farmer Records. It contains 3 self-penned songs and marks their first and punkest release. Keep your eyes peeled for their full length LP out soon as a split between the Mississippi and Slumberland labels."

you can order it here in the US:
