Chrome

I first knew about Chrome when I was younger and obsessed with the Jesus Lizard, who did a Chrome medley of "TV as Eyes" and "Abstract Nympho" off of Half Machine Lip Moves for a 7". I didn't look too much into the band, though, and it wasn't until down the line that I was reintroduced to them. (Also, I should note that in doing a little bit of research I ran across this blog, Half Machine Lip Moves.) I wanted Spirit Photography to cover a song of theirs at some point, and my buddy/bass player Mark suggested maybe getting other bands on board. Turns out our friends in the Crocodiles and Beaters are both big fans, so it made that pretty easy. 12" in the near future...

(I can't find shit for old live videos of these guys, so here's an unreleased studio outtake, "Something Rhythmic"):
