Water All Around

"Water all around...never learn how to swim now." This site is devoted to great alternative music. Like "Swingin' Party" by the Replacements from which the aforementioned lyrics hail. These posts are intended to introduce visitors to bands that I believe deserve greater attention. If you wish to have an MP3 removed, email me at zotzedwriter@yahoo.com.

Horror and serendipity are two terms that rarely find themselves together, though this is the case with the Horrorpops. I knew nothing about these Denmark-based rockers when I stumbled upon them on eMusic’s list of “Recent Arrivals.” Their name and the cover of their 2005 Bring It On! disc (pictured above) lured me to downloading – and this resulted in one of those not-so-frequent instances when you take a musical chance and it pays off.

Led by vocalist Patricia Day, the Horrorpops play a fired-up, rockabilly punk. Their live shows are supposed to be amazing, with Patricia slapping away at her standing bass and go-go dancers teasing and tantalizing the crowd (there’s a link below to their videos where you can see the band in action).

I’ve posted three from Bring It On!: “Freaks in Uniforms” (check out the go-go girl backups singing H-O-R-R-O-R-P-O-P) and “Caught in a Blond” are two rockers, while the daffy, dancey “Walk Like a Zombie” should be a staple at every Halloween party.

So if you haven’t heard the Horrorpops, give them a try. Maybe horror and serendipity will come together for you as well.
