Speed, Glue & Shinki (スピード・グルー&シンキ Supiido, guru ando shinki) was a Japanese psychedelic rock power trio formed in 1970 by guitarist Shinki Chen, and record producer Ikuzo Orita. Orita had previously produced an LP featuring Shinki Chen; who was considered the Japanese equivalent of Jimi Hendrix. The self-titled album Shinki Chen featured other notable musicians, including George Yanagi and Masayoshi Kabe.

Orita had previously produced Shinki Chen’s self-titled debut album Shinki Chen, which in recent years is considered a classic among collectors. Joining Shinki in the band was Filipino singer/drummer Joey Smith, who Shinki had discovered while performing at a shopping centre, and bassist Masayoshi Kabe. The band took their name from Smith’s use and love of amphetamines, and Kabe’s interest of sniffing Pro-Bond glue in the sixties. After the disbandment of the band a double-LP under the name Speed, Glue & Shinki was independently released by Joey Smith. This album featured mostly Joey Smith’s work, where he sampled guitar recordings from Shinki’s previously work.

Speed, Glue & Shinki (スピード・グルー&シンキ Supiido, guru ando shinki) was a Japanese psychedelic rock power trio formed in 1970 by guitarist Shinki Chen, and Ikuzo Orita. The band was only around for two years, releasing two albums in their short tenure. Notably their 1971 album Eve had become a sought-after collectors item in it's own right. Some musical observers consider this trio to be pioneers in the Japanese psychedelic rock scene.

Like their music, the personal and creative relationships of Japanese rock & roll deviants Speed, Glue & Shinki were in a state of total disarray during the recording of their eponymous double-vinyl sophomore album in 1972. The ostensible bandleader, guitarist Shinki Chen, was already partially distracted from the proceedings, and original bassist Masayoshi "Glue" Kabe had completely checked out to resume his hobo-like travels, which left preternaturally wired vocalist and drummer Joey "Speed" Smith to jump into the driver's seat and accelerate the band's.
