Miss a track?




I was thinking about to include The Golden Path, Get Yourself High & Midnight Madness, but they are released at a single with video so i don't

no idea, no idea

This is completely insane. When I saw the subject title I immediatly thought ´Rock Drill´. Then I saw the list and voting became impossible

Let start a discussion :)
Did you forget EBW 6 or did you deliberately exclude it because it's a remix Hoops? If the latter is the case Delik, Studio K, the Diamond sky and Snooprah should be of the list as well for being remixes of other tracks.

You need the Planet Nine mix of Not Another Drugstore too. Far superior. I can't listen to the original anymore.

And, not to be that guy, but Enjoyed is missing...  8)

Holy crap, man!
Well, I've always kinda prefered the Chem's more recent work to their earlier stuff, and their B-Sides is no exception.
After much deliberation, I went with The Duke, Spring, Silver Drizzle, Seal, and Don't Think. I gotta give a shout out to Nude Night, Enjoyed, and The Diamond Sky. Also, My Mercury Mouth holds up as some of their best stuff from around that time.
I used to muse that the brothers were trying to build some sort of lab monster that had a Mercury Mouth and an Elastic Eye. Unfortunately, they never made any more songs with titles like that, but I imagine the project is merely in stasis in Ed's basement.
The devil is in the details

Rock Drill and Pourquoi, because those are the only two that I do not have in legit flac/wav.
Be That Thing, because I forgot about that song existing.
HAR1, because WHY IS THERE ONLY ONE
Swiper, because I can't handle the Swiper.
i love chem bros omg!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is harddddddddd!

After painstakingly picking the first four tracks, I'm now in a 6 way tie for my 5th pick! 

I have no doubt that base 6 should be up there with the best. I mean it's like 4 tracks in one!
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

These polls have become so difficult they're not even fun.

I've never heard of 'Be That Thing' before now. It's kinda got that Dope Coil meets My Mercury Mouth feel. Pretty cool. Is this impossible to track down?

Uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

It was apparently released before the name change:

Ha ha! Well done Pumisher for the most impossible poll ever! It certainly gave me a chuckle.  But it is useful as a reminder of some of the more "off-piste" Chems stuff.

I only became aware of Be That Thing at some point in the last twelve months and I mentioned it somewhere on the old forum. Bought it on CD format on this  compilation. But if you want it on 12", then go here.  Personally I think it's about the crappest thing they've done but I still bought it...

(BTW shouldn't Don't Think say JAPANESE deluxe edition of Further?)

oh I think I got that Melody Maker CD compilation from Amazon actually, for literally one penny + postage here.

Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death

Yes it is :( I took the liberty of editing the poll to add it and vote for it.

It was hard but I picked :
Morning Lemon
Loops of Fury
Enjoyed
Don't Think
Base 6

I would have voted for the Planet Nine Mix. That breakdown and build up at 4:05 is one of the best things they've ever done. It comes on when running quite a lot. I expend so much extra energy drumming along.

I'm  surprised that some of you picked morning lemon!  I actually thought I was alone on that one.

I remember buying the BRB single and playing the hell out of ML than the other.
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

I used to keep skipping to track 4 of BGWIO to hear it all the time before I got the BRB single.

Morning Lemon made my top 5.

It's indeed the worst track they have ever done. It sounds like one of the first three tracks they made, trying to leard to compose with their equipment. Bought it only for completion of the collection, never played it again after the first listen

Fuck!

How has this poll not broken the forum???

:D
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
