Koopas - When Opposites Attack.
If you missed the boat the first time around, here's your last chance to pick up this debut single by THE KOOPAS and the first single by Top Five Records! Limited to 200 on RED VINYL. Fans of 90's pop punk or the sounds of Mutant Pop Records should pick up a copy!. Contains large doses of sugary buzz pop!. This is classic Mutant Pop-style lovestruck adolescent bop all the way - but fine production, a solid guitar buzz, and a firm grasp of a timeless pop aesthetic put these guys WAY ahead of all the ultra-generic wanna-be WeaselQueers! How could I NOT dig a band with the punchy musical chops of ROCKET TO RUSSIA-era Ramones and the tender soul of the Modern Lovers?! All hail the shamelessly sensitive bleeding-heart-bubblepunk splash!". Out of Texas, these guys have the Queers/Screeching Weasel thing down pretty well, but with less of the punk pretension and more pop hooks than you can shake a stick at. Bands like this seem to have died out in recent years, but with the return of the Mutant Pop label from oblivion and bands like this that put the bubblegum melodies and shy guy lyrics back into pop punk, you've got the beginnings of a renaissance for great heavily melodic pop punk. Totally fun. C&P.
