The Chemistry Experiment
Just finished mixing our third EP, entitled 'Round The Corner Dutch Zebra', a masterpiece of pop thrills. We are also embarking on our massive double debut LP, which will doubtless be described the same way.
Martin was in Ward 34, who were played on John Peel in 1979.
Steven occasionally plays as/with My Hairdresser For President.
Emily is in The Standing On Tables, The Sexcapades of Dan Diego, Teen Robot & The Microchips, Parma Violence and many other bands that may or may not exist...
Paul was a founding member of Recorder Moods, and has occasional outings as DJ Roadbuilder.
Lee played 3rd flute for the Dukeries Community Band in Ollerton.
"A poptastic explosion of lo-fi scruffiness and hi-fi ideas... they are pagan love gods and, boys and girls, they rule the school of cool (4/5 stars)" (Melody Maker)
"A glorious cross-pollination of B&S folksiness and Tindersticks melancholy with a twisted experimental heart" (Select Magazine)
"The Chemistry Experiment continue their wing-and-a-prayer flirtations with pop music, ending all chances of this one ever battling it out with Boyzone by sticking a huge break in the middle where the only sound is a remote vacuum cleaner and some chap exclaiming "By Jove, they're doing it!" Before and after this, a jolly romp that Mungo Jerry could've done well with is spiked by a strange scraping noise" (Robots & Electronic Brains on 'Bubblegum')
Strengths and Weaknesses:
Strengths: We have the strength of four men. And a girl.
Weaknesses: Most of us find it hard to resist the offer of a pint. Aside from Lee, who is clearly all powerful.
