Ché was formed as a side project by Brant Bjork, Dave Dinsmore and Alfredo Hernandez. It's not known exactly when they started or ended but roughly around 1999 the band recorded their only album Sounds of Liberation and released it on Man's Ruin Records in 2000, not long after Brant's own solo album Jalamanta was released.
Eventually in 2008 "Sounds of Liberation" would be re-released on Brant's own Low Desert Punk label on CD and for the first time on vinyl. To this day Brant tends to perform Ché songs live with his own band. Bjork released a short retrospective on the album on his own YouTube page in lieu of the album's vinyl re-release.
Ché as a band did actually perform on one known occasion: A CMJ Showcase at The Justice League in San Francisco on 16 September 2000. This showcase would also feature Drunk Horse, Suplecs, Alabama Thunderpussy and Eyehategod.
