Casino Shanghai was a Mexican “techno-pop” band started in Mexico City by Ulalume, Carlos Robledo & Walter Schmidt when they worked on a set of tunes for a farewell party for Ulalume at a club called Club 9. Humberto Alvarez joined the band shortly after and they signed a record deal to release the debut "Film" in December of 1985. An album considered today a masterpiece and cult status.
Casino Shanghai were part of a great cultural change in Mexico and its music scene. The band made various controversial appearances on TV when a band without a drummer or guitarist was unheard of. All members had been in different notorious bands in the local scene. Ulalume was the lead singer for The Casuals (Punk-New Wave) and DenseUndergrowth (Avant-garde). Carlos and Walter were part of Size (Post-punk) and have been playing together for many years in Decibel (Experimental). Humberto played with MCC (Prog Rock) and is currently a well-known musician and multi-instrumentist.
“Film” has been restored and remastered for this new edition including the ten original tracks plus two bonus: “Le Tombeau d' Edgar Poe (Haunted Version)” and “Cuerpos Huecos” (Spanish version of “Hollow Bodies” included only on a promotional 7”).

In Mint condition.
