Cibo Matto is the debut EP by Cibo Matto released in 1995.

Three tracks from this release would find their way onto the group's debut full-length album, albeit with slightly different arrangements (substantially in the case of "Know Your Chicken") and cleaner, better-produced vocal takes. The EP also features a cover of alternative rock band Soundgarden's 1994 song "Black Hole Sun", which Allmusic describes as "a wonderfully loopy cover... rearranged like a lounge favorite and sung in French."[2]

The final track, the instrumental and ambient "Crumbs" would later resurface on the group's second EP, 1997's Super Relax.

  1. "Beef Jerky"
