THE RESEARCH CHYMICALS - SMOOTH DEVELOPMENT

 

The Research Chymicals, a studio band from the Claremont area of Los Angeles, specialize 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 as well as the beat poets such as Kerouac, 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 group of musical magicians paired up with the bassists for Savage Republic and Goldenboy.

 

Jim Carlson - Guitars
Jon Crawford - Drums
KAL - Bass, Guitar, Organ
Kerry Dowling - Bass

 

Produced by KAL and Jon Crawford
Recorded at Interstellar Studios, Upland CA
Edited, Mixed and Mastered by KAL
