Life and career
Nick "Chinga" Chavin was born in 1944. Chinga achieved a considerable amount of notoriety when he recorded and released the uproariously raunchy comedy album "Country Porn" in 1976. "Country Porn" was sold through the mail by "Penthouse" magazine and sold over 100,000 units altogether. "Country Porn" was reissued on CD in 1992 with liner notes, a booklet complete with song lyrics and photographs, and four bonus songs.
Chavin's other main claim to infamy is that he co-wrote the hilariously crude and rude "Asshole from El Paso," a blithely vulgar parody of the country classic "Okie From Muskogee" by Merle Haggard. The song was covered by fellow irreverent country and western music satirist Kinky Friedman. Chavin and Kinky Friedman are friends and collaborators. Another Chavin song, "Cum Stains on the Pillow", was covered by David Allan Coe, on his album Nothing Sacred.
Chinga's other albums are "Jet Lag" and "Live and Politically Erect." He contributed two songs to the soundtrack of the enjoyably sordid "adults only" mystery thriller "Punk Rock." Chinga Chavin now runs an advertising agency in New York City.
