ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Electro-garage-dance-punk-new wave-trash-rock-noise-synth-pop four-piece, Things That Go Pop! have been bubbling under the surface of the Austin music scene since early 2003, in which time they have managed to simultaneously become the antithesis and epitome of their name. While their genre-defying mix of electric dance beats, swaggering post-punk noise, and gut-wrenching dirges, belies something utterly avant guarde, their unwavering commitment to organic, catchy songwriting has kept them in the sphere of pop music. They are in a constant state of "going pop," but from such a decidedly anti-pop direction that a very compelling and intriguing tension is created within their songs.

TTGP's sonic diversity is due to its three principle songwriters, Andy Klier (vocals, synth, guitar), Jerad Kolarik (vocals, synth, guitar), and Josh Batschelet (vocals, loops, bass), who's eclectic musical backgrounds along with the scattershot dance beats of Jeremy Ridge (drums, drum machine) have congealed into the band's current sound. Because of this, comparisons to other bands are difficult; although Sonic Youth vs. New Order seems somehow appropriate.

As TTGP's music hinges on a pop ideal, so too do their politics. To them "pop" is not just a musical stance but a political one as well. They have been known to set up in front of stages and dance in the middle of the audience in order to break down all barriers between the band and their spectators. Additionally, their website offers an extensive list of free downloads of live bootlegs, unreleased tracks, T-shirts, and posters. Ever the consummate showmen, TTGP have also recently taken to throwing theme parties in which the audience is invited to participate. Their Pink Party at the Church of the Friendly Ghost, for example, featured dazzling live projections, extensive decorations, and more pink than the Barbie aisle at Toys R Us.

In their brief history TTGP have been quite prolific, releasing their first recording (The Self-Titled EP) in February 2003 and the Pop Yourself EP in May 2004. Their new full-length album hit the streets August 27, 2005. As of late, TTGP have been touring more vigorously around Texas in support of their new LP as well as playing frequently in Austin.

TTGP are also currently seeking a record label to help them get their music out to the people.
