CHA CHA CHA "Hat Trick"
The third and final missive - CHA CHA CHA's last release on Popgun before pitching up a tent at the Motorway Records camp in Japan. Less stress, no mess, this is Cha Cha Cha's smoothest, silkiest release, prompting the indie consignetti to compare them to a young Luscious Jackson. The band still brings the lo-fi funk, but features a more mature and polished Cha Cha Cha sound, with even-more-so sophisticated instrumental arrangements and introspective lyrics...

The photo on the cover - featuring Mike lighting up a cigar and wearing a big foam cowboy hat - was taken during the last few hours of 1996, on New Year's Eve, somewhere on the Las Vegas Strip.
