Poppees, The - Pop Goes The Anthologie LP


---> Powerpop/ Mod
Formed in In the mid-'70s in New York by Bob Waxman (r.gtr), Arthur Alexander (l.gtr), Paddy Lorenzo (bass), and Donny Jackrel (drums), later replaced by Jet Harris, THE POPPEES were one of the creators and the embodiment of what soon came to be known as the "Power Pop" sound of the late 70s. Their style could best be described as inspired by everything in pop music just before the Merseybeat scene and THE BEATLE Sunloaded on the world. The POPPEES cut two classic singles for Bomp, "If She Cries/Love of The Loved" (the latter track produced by Craig Leon of THE RAMONES fame) in 1975, and in 1976 "Jealousy/She's Got It," produced by Cyril Jordan, of the legendary FLAMIN' GROOVIES, then POPPEES label mates. The band disbanded shortly after the release of "Jealousy", and Bob Waxman and Paddy Lorenzo went on to form the BOYFRIENDS, while Arthur Alexander and Jet Harris formed SORROWS and cut two albums for a CBS Records imprint in the early '80s.

This long overdue anthology finally gives this notable and highly underrated seventies Power Pop band their due, elegantly chronicling the POPPEES short but influential role in the history of the New York New Wave scene of the late 70's. While anchored around their two classic Bomp singles, "Pop Goes the Anthology" features never before released recordings, including demos, early live recordings, and culminating with a riproaring live performance at CBGB. It is complete with liner notes and unpublished photos. Color vinyl!
