|Down by Law|
The band's initial line-up was Dave Nazworthy (aka Dave Naz - vocals, drums, guitar), Ed Urlik (bass guitar), Jaime Pina (guitar), and Blair Jobe (vocals, guitar). Jobe left the band prior to the release of debut album So Sexist! in 1988. They followed this with Ten-Fold Hate in 1989, with hardcore pornography a common lyrical theme with guest vocals by Jack Baker on the track 'Black Throat' (for the XXX flick of the same name which Baker starred in) and porn star Taija Rae on the cover.
In 1990 Nazworthy and Urlik teamed up with Dave Smalley to form Down by Law. They returned to Chemical People and released the mini-set Angels 'n' Devils towards the end of the year. The band contributed soundtrack material to several porn films and these were collected on the 1991 album Soundtracks.
After a five-year hiatus, the band returned in 1997 with a new album, Arpeggio Motorcade, after which they stopped actively playing live in 1998. Chemical People still remain a band hidden away, playing occasionally in their studio with members Dave Naz, Ed Urlik and Jaime Pina. At some point the band may be back playing shows...
