Boston Chinks – Swollen Vessels

This track was the B side on a split 7″ with late garage icon Jay Reatard in 2007 put out by Germany’s P. Trash Records. Molded from the same pop punk Memphis clay, Boston Chinks had only one more release, Coltrane, before the group split. The image in the above clip is actually the cover to Coltrane. Drummer Billy Hayes also played with Jay Reatard’s band from 2005 – 2009. He and fellow Reatard alum Stephen Pope joined Nathan Williams’ Wavves before the release of 2010’s King of the Beach. Ex-Boston Chink Alex Gates joined soon after and still tours and records with Williams’ project. Hayes left Wavves soon after King of the Beach’s release and, along with Gates, formed Cretin Stompers. The group released their first LP, Looking Forward to Being Attacked, on Hozac Records in 2014.
