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.
