The Experiments are the ultimate DIY, underground indie band – they’ve been around since 1994, a coming together of some members of NYC’s Dead Ducks and LA’s Beverly Pills, originally. Then, in 2003 Brian Chase, formerly of Boston’s Suburban Rejects joined up, adding a new influence to their songwriting.
In March of 2005, The Experiments put together this self-titled CD, partly recorded live at Blind Melon’s, in San Diego and also at “Dan’s Apartment” and at Spotless Digital in Ocean Beach. Their music is a sludgy, raw punk-rock that is more influenced by old-school punk-rock from Detroit, like MC5 or the Stooges than by hardcore bands like MDC or GBH. The juxtaposition from club to bedroom to studio only adds to the low-fi, indie ethos, bringing out the gist of each song in a pure form – only an acoustic guitar and a vocal mike would be purer.
