Biography

There is more than one artist with this name.

1. A DC based folk duo active from the early 1980s until the early 1990s.

2. A San Diego rock band formed in 2007

3. A dutch band known for there single called ‘Stronger’

1. Like Goliards of old, The PHEROMONES criss-crossed North America in the 1980’s and ’90s lampooning the local clergy and constabulary and anyone else who fell into their satirical cross-hairs.

From the epicenter of chicanery and peccadillious depravity, Washington, D.C., the ‘Mones took on the right wing, the arms industry, lawyers, yuppies, and the makers of non-dairy coffee creamers, with hilarious songs, gaffs, jokes, and pink balloons. Theirs was the serious business of American-style free speech and satire. They called it Pop-Relevant Cabaret because they used pop musical themes to write and perform relevant songs in a cabaret setting.

The PHEROMONES are infamous for songs such as “Yuppie Drone,” “L-L-Liberal,” “This Speech is Free,” “Shy Kidneys,” “(It Ain’t Easy Bein’) Green, and “The Supreme Court,” and have spread their Loyal Opposition all across the globe.

Jimmy and Alvis Pheromone, (twin brothers whose parents were killed in a media blitz) performed upwards of 200 nights a year, recorded 4 major albums, 8 music videos, and their independent sound reached around the world. If you missed them, shame on you (not having been born yet is no excuse).

    Anyone have an MP3 of "Where's the Service" they're willing to share with me? I hate to beg, but it's either this or drop $100 for the CD.

    It appears there are at least 2 "The Pheromones". One is a no longer existing folk duo and the other is an active blues, boogie rock band based in San Diego. The album "EP", released in 2007 is from the San Diego Pheromones. They are in the process of recording their debut 11 song album to be released by the end of the year. For updates and more information about the active Pheromones you can visit their official website http://www.pheromonesmusic.com
