Post-grunge auteur act Chinaski carries alt rock right up to the edge with its distinctive interpretation of modern rock. Its a power punch to the innards driven by brains and brawn; it grabs your mind and electrifies the body. Chinaski is the rock of today and tomorrow. According to Chinaski, Our music combines the driving rhythms and guitar barrage of early 90s rock with a songwriting style that falls just left of the mainstream.
Music is the spirit escaping and finding communion with others. Music offers a one-of-a-kind portal of communication. Music is much more than entertainment, says one member of Chinaski. Its an outlet. The music that moves us has an honesty that helps anchor us and reflects our true selves back to us. Its a circle of energy made possible through Chinaskis galvanizing songwriting.
The process begins when the audience is hit by Chinaskis lean and mean, smart and stripped-down audio action. The bands music feeds the intellect as well as a persons visceral need for moving music. Intelligent lyricism, no-frills musicality and a straight shot directly into the listener, is how Chinaski describes it. Chinaski has a simple approach to rock that rock itself shouldnt be so simple.
The Artist at Work
Chinaski derives its name from the works of Charles Bukowski. Chinaski valued alcohol and the madmen and women of the world, explains a member of Chinaski. He lived to create and illuminate the underbelly of Los Angeles. Chinaski says that the cleansing honesty of Bukowskis character is reflected in the music of this band. The groups song I Will was featured on two episodes of TVs The Gilmore Girls. Chinaski is at work on its third album and is working with A&R Select, the hottest indie A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
Despite its grunge roots, Chinaski is not a peek into the past, but rather a roadmap beyond musics future horizon. A&R Select
