The ambient pop unit Chainsuck formed in Boston in 1992, and comprised vocalist/guitarist Marydee Reynolds, keyboardist Robert Trifiro, drummer Michael J.F. Smith, sampler Doug Vargas and producer Lamar Lowder. Through fan and onetime Revolting Cocks frontman Chris Connelly, the group's demo tape was passed to Wax Trax! Records, which signed Chainsuck to release the group's 1996 debut Angelscore. Kindly, Stop for Me followed three years later.
