About Captain Chemical

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. Saw Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band at a club that let underage kids in. Root stuck his head inside the bass drum during a song. Later he pulled a tile out of the roof and smashed it on my friend's head. The fine line between genius and idiocy. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? The Doors, The Doors Then, 2) "Stupid" by Captain Chemical, and 3) anything by Primus, Root Boy Slim, Mojo Nixon, or the Dead Milkmen Why, you ask? BECAUSE MUSIC IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Captain's Alien Abduction” If aliens did abduct a human, they're less likely to pick up a Nobel prize winner than some drunken idiot. Might have already happened - aliens got hold of a fool... and left for a different planet, with intelligent life. This song tells that story. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? Drummer Dougie Dealer was out of costume, waiting in line to buy cigarettes and beer at a convenience store when a complete stranger tapped him on the shoulder and said, "You're the drummer for Captain Chemical, right? I love your music and videos." Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? A guy in Russia liked our first album, so we sent him the video for "Toad Licking." He posted it on his website, and it got thousands of hits. At the end of one week, Russia invaded Ukraine. Now we've got fans in Russia but can't play a gig there.
