Out of stock

2nd pressing available, now on black vinyl. "A seminal album by Italian new wave duo Chrisma, the absolutely essential Chinese Restaurant has not been available on vinyl format in over 30 years. Chrisma is made up of husband and wife team Maurizio Arcieri and Christina Moser (the name comes from the first letters of each of their names). The record was first recorded in 1977 and originally released that same year by Polydor. It was produced, and arranged, and contains musical contributions by Niko Papathanassiou (brother of the famous Vangelis Papathanassiou responsible for the timeless Blade Runner score). Chinese Restaurant is a very unique record blending the best elements of synth-punk, Neu!-esque prog jams, and new wave into a hybrid of sheer perfection. From the post-punk energy of the single, 'Black Silk Stocking' to the jagged hooks of 'What For' and the analog warbling synths of 'Mandoia', this futuristic slab of wax is a classic. This reissue was licensed directly from the artists, and it includes a reworking of the original front and back cover artwork. Presented on high-quality 180gm vinyl."
