Wow...first post already!Ahhh...the Pop-O-Pies White EP. One of my recent vinyl bin scores. I paid like $2.99 at Fingerprints (the LAST of the independent record stores...hell, the last of the record stores in general), knowing full well that this has an ebay value of no less than $25.
According to P.O.P legend, their first two years performing as a band consisted of one song...their punk cover of "Truckin'".
The band line up changed a lot, and head Pie, Joe Pop-O-Pie felt that since the PAs sucked in the clubs, no one would notice. Plus, the band had frequent line-up changes, so this made teaching the repertoire easier.
As with any well executed novelty, though there were many detractors, the band also garnered a following. So much so, that when they got more professional and tried adding songs to their set, the faithful (who came to hear "Truckin'", ad nauseum) got restless.
This is their first, infamous EP. They also have two full albums out, and, for the digital age, an Anthology available at CD Baby.
There is a Pop-O-Pie/Faith No More connection. Some of the band members from P.O.P joined FNM. As well, Joe was FNMs first singer...before the mohawked guy and Mike Patton. Another early FNM singer was, surprisingly, Courtney Love.
Well, enjoy Pop-O-Pies' ultra rare White EP. Keep checking in to RUHtf for another Gem Of The Week.
