The Goops



It seems that once a year I get a request to repost this album. I'm happy to comply because I think the album is awesome even if the complete plonker that requested it didn't leave an email so I could let them know that it was re-upped.

Here's what I wrote about it a couple of years ago.

Another New York punk band that absolutely rocks. This four piece band is female fronted and once again I don't know too much about them but a google search reveals they have at least two albums and a song on the Mallrats soundtrack. The music is punk and there are shades of the punker Blondie and I'm also reminded of both Throwing Muses(particularly on the last song I am Legend) and Transvision Vamp at times.
Third song The Day I Met Iggy is classic punk rawk with its catchy chorus and autobiographical lyrics about not impressing Mr Pop.

This now defunct band have a myspace site where you can hear a couple of songs from their self titled album. There they state that their influences as The Ramones, Stiff Little Fingers, Iggy Pop, The Clash, Blondie, The Avengers, MC5, Radio Birdman and listening to the self titled album that does nail their sound and they cover MC5's City Slang on this album. It is also stated that their first album is as much rock as punk and the second one is more pop.
Songs:
Dead/Alive
I Don't Care
The Day I Met Iggy
City Slang
