Snap, Crackle, Horror Pops?

image It's laundry day, and I'm about to listen to a CD by a band called the Horror Pops while I fold. Who are the Horror Pops? Not sure yet. A friend loves them though and asked me to go to their show with him on Saturday, so I'm going. But first, I need to listen to them. Since I have a subscription to Yahoo Music, I was able to download one of their CDs (Yahoo only has one) at no additional cost. So I'm gonna listen to it half a dozen times or so before the show. I enjoy concerts so much more once I've grokked the band and get to hear a familiar tune or two.

Horror Pops. You gotta love the name.

More 2 come.,,

Yes, what a name. It certainly suggests a surreal kind of music. Sounds almost new wavey to me. Let us know what you think.

Hey Charles,

I think SynergyBoy does a good job of giving you a feel for the band...

Hey SynergyBoy

Looking forward to the show...I've only listened to the CD once so far (but noticed they have a new one dropping this week). Anyway, first listen, I likes. A couple of songs, such as Miss Take, grabbed me on first listen...plus, I love the lead singer's vocals...

Looking forward to the show...don't foret to bring your ti-ti stirrer! Don't leave home without it!

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
