Music Reviews: The Fizzy Pops - "The Fizzy Pops"

Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I hear another amazing record that just blows my mind into a million scrambled little pieces. A record that haunts me in my dreams, in a good way! Songs that keep me humming when I'm trying to concentrate on important things, like the Bears game or trying to focus on what my wife's telling me. That's what happened when I heard the self titled LP from The Fizzy Pops. Songs so good you'll never look at pop punk the same way again.

The Fizzy Pops have a sound that's somewhere between Screeching Weasel style punk complete with infectious solos and nasally sounding vocals, to 60s girl group pop that'll make you wanna storm the dance floor with an updated version of the twist!

The album, out on Throw Up Records, kicks out the jams with "Friday The 13th". The lyrics range from bad luck superstition, to partying "while you're still alive". Perfect for anyone with the attention span of a flea, like myself. "I Wanna Dance" THIS is as addictive as crack. You'll be wondering where has this band been all your life! SO good!

The band, Cate (guitar/vocals), Luke (bass/vocals), Jake (drums) and Samantha (guitar, but doesn't play on this recording) are pros at writing and recording some monstrous, fun music that will take over your brain for days on end. On "Loose Screw" the band unleash the inner speed demon in them with lightning fast playing and hilarious lyrics about drinking so much you can't remember what day it is, not being able to think straight, and just not giving a shit "cuz that's the way it is!" BRILLIANT!

Some people do pop punk good. Some do it great. The Fizzy Pops take this style and craft it into something that can't be described. It's just that good. If you like catchy pop infused punk rock you need to check out The Fizzy Pops. Hit em up on FacebookMySpace or Bandcamp. You won't regret it.
