superPOP – Exploiting Teen Angst for Profit (Complete Recordings 1995-1997)
New on the Free Downloads page, everything recorded by indie-noisesters superPOP between the years 1995-1997. A total of 31 tracks of power/noise/punk-pop. superPOP were also at bit emo before whiny lyrics were called emo and, at times, displayed their too obvious love of The Pixies.
Digital “box set” includes:
- 110% Fun (1995) – 10 songs. Cheeky noise. 10% more fun than similarily titled Matthew Sweet album. Somewhere between Everclear, Sonic Youth and Eric’s Trip. PDF CD booklet included (with liner notes from Andrew MacGregor).
- Exploiting Teen Angst For Profit (1996) – 7 songs. The entire unfinished and unfocussed sessions with a new drummer for the follow-up album. Ironically, 2/3 of the group left to focus on more profitable bands.
- Lost Tapes (1996/97) – 14 songs. New line up, slight change in direction towards garage-punk and another abandoned attempt at a second album. Various sundry demos.
