No Information Available. - Flagpole Athens, GA


This band has five members. That's all Flagpole knows. - Flagpole Athens, GA


Oh, Chemists is a four-piece from Macon/ Athens and sporting a hectic and volatile style of loose punk/ math-rock and one of those interesting creatures: the singing drummer. As the boys open at Nu├ži's Space on Saturday night, their volatility comes through via a rare technique known around the traps as play nice and slow, then play really, really, really hard and fast, then play slow and pretty, then play some mid-paced retro-rock, then go crazy, and repeat, in alternating combinations as desired. It's a bit like watching a train wreck at three different speeds and never knowing when the speed will change, or if the train is empty, or whether a lot of people are about to die, or if they already have.

And if they do die, you also don't know if they will go to heaven or hell, and if the ones who go to hell actually want to go to hell, as much as the ones who go to heaven are happy to be going to heaven. All of this takes place in mere minutes. - Flagpole Athens, GA

Bio

We all grew up and played in many bands together in Macon, Georgia, but did not start this project until we moved to Athens, Georgia. For the most part, we just want to create music that generates drastic mood changes in the listener, something that will make him or her feel like we feel about things in general. We want to make new and exciting art. Influences: Pavement, Dr. Dre, Yes, Flaming Lips, John Coltrane, Granapple Tate and The Morchoks, Pixies
