All Night Chemists

Those of you who grew up in the music of the 60's, 70's and 80's and were passionate about it, should pay attention. All Night Chemists is the artist for those who say there is no good music out there anymore. The Chemists do all those things we remember our favorite bands (would they be called classic rock now?) doing right:
1. Making an album you can listen to from start to finish.
2. Writing songs. Don't laugh, there's a lot of stuff (notice how I avoided the word music) out there now that's not songs by any stretch. It's notes, but not necessarily songs.
3. Arranging. There was thought put into the arrangements of these songs.
4. Putting on a great live show. After seeing a Chemists performance, you'll know that rock is not dead. Len Monachello, the head Chemist plays guitar, keyboards, bass and you might even find him behind the drum kit. He also carries lead vocals. Brandon Wilde on bass/vocals and Andy LaDue on drums round out the trio. If you're in NYC come see them this Friday the 29th at the Living Room or October 11th at Rockwood. Listen to the band. Spread the word.
