Welcome to the Popperlist
Hello boys and girls in cybervisionland and welcome to the second edition of the Poppermost newsletter.  Removal instructions, if you want them, are at the bottom of this email.

In addition to a party event and great news, we have a cool new editorial section from Alex.  He insisted on some space and since he's bigger than the rest of us, we weren't going to argue!  Besides, he promised to keep it short and sweet.  If he doesn't appear in next month's edition, you'll know he blew it!  For all you new subscribers who don't yet know the who and how of Poppermost, visit <http://www.thefaro.com/poppermost.html> to get a little bit of history on the band and to find out other ways to hear our music.

Christmas Video Shoot Party
First in our news, we're having a party!  As many of you know, we're trying to get paying gigs since paying the bills on admiration alone is a bit difficult.  Reaching that goal includes making a video showing what we do.  We are working on a concept video for one of our songs now, but we really need a live performance video.  So, a Christmas and Video Shoot Party is in order and you're invited to be a part of it.  We need your help, please, on Tuesday, December 18, 2001, starting about 8:30 pm or 8:45 pm at Money Plays.  The address is 4755 W Flamingo (just east of Decatur) in Las Vegas NV.  We're poor, so you have to buy your own beer or soda at the bar, but we'll provide the entertainment and some munchies to complete the festivities.  It's free, so all you have to do is show up and be ready to party.

Moving on, the two performances mentioned in the last issue (a House Concert and the House of Blues) were wonderful, even if we do say so ourselves!  Thanks to all who were able to attend.  To those who couldn't be there, thank you for your continued support in other ways, but boy oh boy, did you miss a lot of fun and great music.  Not only did Poppermost rock both "Houses" to the rafters, so did many other wonderful artists.  We're not going to get too long-winded about all the details, because let's face it, if you weren't there, no amount of detail can fill you in on the excitement you missed.  You'll just have to visit us the next time and find out what it's all about!  That's Dec. 18th, of course.

Okay, that's enough "news" for now.  We promised our leader some space, so

Alex Pops Off
When I learned of George Harrison's passing on November 30 of this year, the big-screen television at my place of work showed a montage of photos.  The accompanying song the network chose to play was "Here Comes the Sun."  I stood there, watching and listening to it, with tears in my eyes.  For me, that song has a strong connection to this particular time of the year.

Christmas time, 1976: I had just turned 7, and my mother had just given me what would be the first installment of my favorite Christmas gifts, Beatles records.  The first of this prized collection included a "best of" album set called "The Beatles 1967-1970."  Christmas morning, for me, will forever be the sounds of the opening guitar lines of "Here Comes the Sun," which was written and played by George Harrison.  The song conjures within me the love of family, and the closeness we rarely had during the other 364 days of the year.  It also reminds me of my musical roots, and why I chose to be a musician in the first place.  George Harrison is a very big part of that.

Christmas time is here again.  Scores of Christmas classics like "White Christmas," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," John Lennon's "Happy Xmas," and many versions of "Merry Christmas Baby" are playing in shopping centers and everywhere else.  For the next few weeks, you'll no doubt be hearing Beatles music as well.  Listen to the joy and hope in "Here Comes the Sun," and go on your way a bit better off.

Let us know what you thought of Alex's column; maybe next month we'll feature Roy Al Rendahl talking about "I'm a Mac man!"  Seriously though, we'll let him talk about whatever he wishes.

Formed in July 2001, Poppermost currently consists of singer / songwriter and guitarist, Alex Oliver, along with bassist, Roy Al Rendahl, who also provides the visual artistry for the band.  The name originates from the early Beatles' inspirational call and response, "...to the toppermost of the poppermost."  Alex is a veteran of several popular Los Angeles based pop rock bands of the 1990's, including Junetown and Clover Club.  Roy's music experience spans the 70's and 80's in Minnesota with a wide range of genres including psychadelic-jazz-rock, pop rock, R&B, and country-rock in bands such as Blooze Union, Peppermint Love, The Barb Timm Band, Changes, and Sweetwater; and in the 90's doing audio and video recording in California.

Our influences include: Beatles, Stones, R.E.M., Buffalo Springfield, Grateful Dead, Elton John, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Santana, U2, Aimee Mann, Paul Simon, and Fleetwood Mac.
