A Day At the Beach

by Johnny Popstar & The Luv Explosion

Power pop, retro wannabe dweeb rock. Influenced by British and Japanese rock of the 60’s, Johnny Popstar sings both in English and Japanese on this album. Their snotty power pop approach to rock gives this band a unique retro edge. Savoir-faire, tight trousers, and a niche for writing some of the most catchy, snappy, infectious, songs that stick to your brain like cotton candy will have you singing along in no time.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Johnny Popstar is the leader of the upbeat power pop band Johnny Popstar & The Luv Explosion. With the dynamic wit of the Beatles, the zaniness of Frank Zappa, the melodic sugary sweetness of the Archies, and the pure raw energy of the Ramones, Johnny Popstar & The Luv Explosion have been stirring up quite a buzz recently since the release of their first full length CD – A Day At The Beach.

Singer/songwriter Johnny Popstar is the sterotypical teen idol who looks as though he may have just walked out of an episode of The Partridge Family, while drummer Bobby Alucard is your everyday, happy-go-lucky vampire. Other band members include a masked wrestling superhero and well, some other guy.

The JPLE’s first release was entitled Lizzy The Supermarket Drag Queen and was produced by Hooter’s bassist Fran Smith Jr. This collection of 5 songs included contributions by Steve Butler of Smash Palace, Glen Burtnik of Styx, and Flo & Eddie aka (Mark Volman & Howard Kaylan) of the Turtles and Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention.

In 2011 Johnny Popstar and Bobby Alucard reformed as Johnny Popstar & The Luv Explosion and have just finished working with Steve Butler of Smash Palace on their first full length album entitled A Day At The Beach. Influenced by British and Japanese rock of the 60’s, Johnny Popstar sings both in English and Japanese on this album. Their snotty power pop approach to rock gives this band a unique retro edge. Savoir-faire, tight trousers, and a niche for writing some of the most catchy, snappy, infectious, songs that stick to your brain like cotton candy will have you singing along in no time.
