So Sexist, the full-length debut from Chemical People, further enhanced the vibrant Southern CA punk scene and helped set the stage for the '90s punk revival. Both the songs and performances on this 1988 Cruz records release bounce with an underground rock directness. Listeners unfamiliar with Chemical People's particular brand of rock & roll will probably find it impossible to distinguish one track from the next on So Sexist. The moderate to upbeat tempos and group choruses begin to blend together well before this effort's 12th and final number. But this repeating pattern is a spirited one that fans of the band should appreciate from start to finish. The first and perhaps finest addition to their nine-disc oeuvre, Chemical People's So Sexist crackles with a cool punk energy.
