Chim Chim's Badass Revenge

Rowdy 75444-37010-2 CD, released 1996

Music on CD MOCCD 13117 CD, released 1996

I love the concept of this album: Chim Chim (the monkey from Speed Racer), through government experiments, becomes super intelligent and a global star. He is turned into an astronaut, and when he is shot into space, he turns around and blows up the world. Totally unnecessary. That's what makes it great. It's also a greater social commentary, but that's a whole other story.

INterestingly, half of the album was record live (at a show in New York that I attended!). That was a rough crowd. Anyway, the highlight of this album for me is actually a song that they wrote when the band had just gotten together years before: "Alcoholic." It had never been officially released until this came out. The version on Chim Chim was recorded live, and it is tight. This album was their first ever outside of the Columbia sphere of influence. CD only - there were many versions, and most of them had the same catalogue number. There was also a European re-release in 2014 on the "Music on CD" imprint.
