Chemistry is the second studio album by Australian rock band Mondo Rock, originally released in 1981 by Avenue Records.

Ross Wilson was recently described, by noted Australian rock historian Ian McFarlane, as "one of this country’s national treasures". With a 45+ year career, that continues to this day, Wilson has given this country nearly five decades of great music.

From his pioneering Sixties bands (The Pink Finks, Party Machine and Sons of the Vegetal Mother), to his national breakthrough with Daddy Cool, Ross Wilson's place in Australian music history was assured. However, it did not end there.

After disbanding Daddy Cool - and in an incredible three-year run - he formed the short-lived 'super group' Mighty Kong, re-formed Daddy Cool, produced (amongst others) the mega-selling Skyhook's debut album Living In The Seventies, started a record label (Oz Records) with Glenn Wheatley and formed Mondo Rock.

From 1976-1978 the band, initially called Ross Wilson's Mondo Rock, honed their live skills on a seemingly endless series of one-nite stands across the country. The line-up took some time to gel, eventually settling with Peter Laffy (guitar), Randy Bulpin (guitar), Tony Slavich (keyboards), Simon Gyllies (bass) and Iain McLennan (drums). It was this line-up who recorded the half-studio / half-live debut Primal Park.

Chemistry enjoyed an thirty-three week run in the Australian charts, peaking at No. 3 and producing two top ten and two top 40 singles, all of which remain radio staples. On it’s US release Billboard described it as "state of the art rock”.

This deluxe double CD courtesy of Aztec Records, as well as boasting the four singles has been expanded to include rare B-Sides, four previously unreleased demos and a bonus live CD. With its remastering it sounds better than ever.

This is a must for the Aussie music aficionado.

Check out the tracks: “State Of The Heart”; “Cool World”; “Chemistry” and “Summer Of ‘81

This expanded CD with remastered audio, bonus material and a 24-page booklet is manufactured in Australia.
