ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pop-O-Pies "Pop-O-Anthology 1984 - 1993"


Featuring members of the bands, Faith No More and Mr. Bungle.

First time ever on CD. Digitally re-mastered from the original vinyl recordings (improved fidelity) by Tom Mallon and Klaus Fluoride of the Dead Kennedys.

Includes all the tracks from "Joe's 2nd & 3rd Records", and "The In Frisco Single". Plus, 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks from the 1993 Mr. Bungle sessions (18 tracks total, over an hour worth of music).

This CD features the songs and vocals of Faith No More's very first singer, Joe Pop-O-Pie.

There's a version of "Truckin" (of course), as well as a beautiful bass-ackwards version of "Sugar Magnolia" which (unusually enough) are loved by people who love or hate the Grateful Dead. Now THAT'S interesting.

On a historical note, despite the Pop-O-Pies irreverent but tasteful slams of the Grateful Dead's music, Jerry Garcia was actually a huge, and very supportive, fan of the band.

For those who have never heard the music of the Pop-O-Pies, it has been described in some of the following ways:

Jimi Hendrix sits in with an early 80's punk band while having a bad acid trip (that's PRE-hardcore, thank you).

Joe Pop-O-Pie describes his music as "hey, they're just some songs that I wrote. We played them, and that's how they came out. I don't know what the hell to call it."

But what really makes the music worthy of note, is it's interesting attitude. An atypical view of the current state of Rock 'n' Roll during time it was recorded. It's what many people were thinking, but were afraid to say, about the music scene during those years (1984 - 1993). Painfully honest and with a healthy dose of rye humor.

This CD is a must for all Pieheads AND Deadheads.

The Words of Jamal (review version)
In a skinny tie, Members Only world, thank god we had Joe. I looked up the Pop-O-Pies every few months in that "if there really is a God" kinda way, and low and behold - my beloved and dusty vinyl will stay beloved and dusty. And finally I get that Pop-O-Feeling I haven't had in years. The Pop-O-Anthology. Listen, love it, live it. Good to have you back, Joe!

Lissa Moore

Joe always pleases!
I love it Always have and always will :) I went to alot of Mr Bungle shows in the early 90s and was suprised but pleased to see them and DK take part in a very important Anthology all Pop O Pies I have are on old tapes and this is the first I have been able to find. Than You Thank You Thank YOu!!! :)

As original copies of these P-O-P releases are scarce and pricey, I was delighted to stumble across this new release. And boy howdy, do they sound good this time around! Klaus Flouride did one hell of a job remastering everything to sound full and bright.

This disc is a must-have for old-school punk rock collectors. It's a relic from San Francisco's colorful musical history, bringing general wackiness into a genre that parents percieved as violent and negative. With Grateful Dead covers, thrash, and some primitive rap, it's got everything for everyone. Anti-Reagan and stuff man, YEAH!

DRABBOO


tHESE WEre songs and albums of a far away magical time long long ago. And when some one stole them I saw my childhood end. Fcukin bastards. but then I saw this CD. I went back to that special place. I am content. Wait no I am not Where is the first album. Still. Mom i dont want pb&j.

Tom Smith

I have to agree with Kael, but I'll give it a 4
It would only be complete if it had "The Catholics are Attacking"! Other than that IT IS GREAT!

Kurdt

blew my mind
This CD rules. The first time I got it I played it till my ears hurt. Not only is it a great punk album but the lyrics are really funny and applicable to the music scene back in the 80's and to today. My only grudge: where's the first album!!?

S Hirst

Loved it then, love it now.
I had Joe's 2nd and 3rd records in the 80's, and have been searching like hell to find them on CD. This CD sounds GREAT!!! It would be nice if all CD's were re-mastered this well. THANK YOU!!!!

Doug Tidwell

Anti-Reagan and stuff man, yeah.
Some of the music that got me through the Reagan years. In the current political environment, \"World-O-Morons\" might dominate my playlist for the next four years. Thank God this is on CD, I can send the vinyl to the Smithsonian now. Every smartass home should have one.

Rob Brown

Was kick ass in the 80s, still kick ass today!!
I listened to these jams back in the 80s, thought it was gone when Shani moved away and so did the album, never seen since until about 2 weeks ago. Thank you CD baby!!!!

rich radka

Tru-tru-tru-truckin'!
I don't know if you can understand Joe without being there back in the day, but you can certainly try. None of the songs sound "punk" in a the boring, codified things ended up going, but he's punk to the core in his inconoclastic DIY idiot savant-ness. Love it, love it, love it. So glad to have it back in my collection.
