chemical people - the singles

releasing their first single in 1986, beverly hills' chemical people were one of those bands that should have been more popular than just with their cult following, while all along, cruz records labelmates ALL were already in stride morphing from the descendents, and benefiting greatly from a built-in fan base. the chems were often compared with all/descendents but maintained their own version of noodly pop/punk that evolved steadily over the course of ten years and six albums, many of which were produced/engineered by stevenson/egerton. throughout their decade or so existence, the chems have collaborated with an impressive list of VIPs on their recordings, some of which include brett gurewitz and jay bentley from bad religion, kim shattuck of the muffs, steve mcdonald of redd kross, tesco vee of the meatmen, dave smalley of DYS/ALL, and mr. chi pig from SNFU, among others. the end result was always nothing short of a fun, catchy good time on wax.

the singles collection i'm posting is a pretty good representation of the multi-faceted chemical people, and is as rare and long out of print as the singles it collects. there's some instrumental tooling, a bunch of crafty cover songs showing many of their influences (misfits, kiss, and GG allin all represented), and of course plenty of dirty-worded, bubbly/punky originals to keep even the most discerning fan's attention.

Hate these misleading albums! Doesn't even have their first single on it (Black Throat) but they think that throwing a bunch of live stuff on there compensates!

-That's not true, arsehole. It contained: the good, the bad and the ugly, and also Henry Whitpenn.
