Chin Chin

Chin-Chin were an all female Swiss indie band formed in 1982 in Biel, Switzerland by Karin (guitar/vocals), Esther (bass/vocals) and Marie-Anne (drums/vocals). Musically the band had many influences: The Clash, The Ramones, X-Ray Spex, Blondie, Generation X, Siouxsie & The Banshees, David Bowie, Motown, 1960s girl groups and glam rock bands like T-Rex and Slade. The group became prominent during the C86 indie scene in the mid-80's, but split sometime in the late 80's.
