The Research Chymicals are a studio band from the Claremont area of Los Angeles, CA specializing in psychedelic rock.


The songs here were created on the spot in one take via improvisation in order to try and capture the unconscious as inspired by the automatic writing techniques of the surrealists poets and the beat poets such as Ginsburg and William S. Burroughs.


The lyrics to these songs are taken from Ann and Alexander Shulgin's works TIKAL and PIKAL.


The band is comprised of a core dioxy ring of psychezymic guitarists co-bonding with three

bassists of the the methyl ring on differing tracks.
