La Costa Rasa is a Post-Goth Punk band formed in Leeds in 1991.
'Post-Goth' in that we did big emotional songs with drum-machines and Akai samplers and were mentored by acts that may be considered 'Gothic Rock'. We were also called UK Grunge with samplers.
We recorded 3 EPs and an LP 'Autopilot' came out in 1994 on 'The Sisters of Mercy's' label 'Merciful Release', and through 'Rough Trade'
La Costa Rasa toured with:
The Sisters of Mercy, The Mission, The Ramones and Monster Magnet. Also played with Lunachicks, Patricia Morrison and many, many others.
