Happy Thanksgiving from "the Pops"

This just in...
We just got word as we were starting to send out this newsletter that Poppermost will be performing Friday the 25th at a special midnight show at the DiveBar, http://www.vegasdivebar.com/, http://www.myspace.com/vegasdivebar. 3035 E Tropicana Suite E (in Wal-Mart Center near Sheplers), Las Vegas NV 89121, 702-435-7526. For 21 and over only. No cover. Now back to our regularly scheduled message...

Thanks to you, we did it! We won the "Battle!"
Happy Thanksgiving, guys and dolls! Just a quick note to let you know that because of your love, dedication, and votes, Poppermost won first place in the Battle of the ZBands contest, hosted by ZBands.com. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedules to vote and help us get the name and the tunes out there.

Christmas right around the corner... again?
Yes, Christmas time is here again, folks! In the tradition of one of our favorite bands, Poppermost will post a special Christmas message and song on the web site in a couple of weeks. Just our way of saying thanks to our families, friends, and fans for their continued support of Poppermusic. Without you, there would be no us. Hey, maybe next year Garth Brooks will invite us to participate in his Wal-Mart Christmas ads on television. Roy Al and Phil are just dying to pelt him with a snowball or four, but Alex just wants to "write his name in the snow."

O.K., but let's get through Thanksgiving first!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Poppermost to you guys and dolls everywhere. We give thanks for the support, the love, and the ears! We also remind you to remember those who are less fortunate at this time of year. Thank you for taking the time to write, call, and visit us when you're in Sin City. You guys are the best!

Peace on you all,
The Staff at Poppermost HQ

"Rock the Casbah. . ."

Greetings from Poppermost HQ, folks! Just wanted say thanks for coming out to The Beach last Wednesday evening to join us and Tripsitter for a night of pop and rock. Both bands and fans had a rollicking good time singing, partying, and dancing the night away until the wee hours.

We would also like to let you guys and gals know that Poppermost is one of six national bands selected for a "Battle of the ZBands" competition. The "battle" began Nov. 12th, and runs through Nov. 18th. The prize is 2 weeks of front page exposure for us on their site -- in other words, free advertising!!!  Yeah!!

That said, we are spreading the word to fans, friends and family, asking that you please visit http://zbands.com/ and cast your vote for Poppermost. VERY IMPORTANT! You can vote only one time. Multiple votes cast from the same email address will automatically result in ALL of the votes from that address being discarded.

And, if we are elected, we promise the formation of a new party; a third party; the Wild Party!

Thanks,
The Poppermost HQ Staff

Poppermost Newsletter: Nov 2005

Poppermost at The Beach

Hi folks,

Hope everyone is doing well. Got a couple of quick notes.

First:
Please mark your calendars... Poppermost, Las Vegas' own free-wheelin' indie retro-alternative rock trio, will be performing, along with Tripsitter, at The Beach for their Plugged In Concert Series http://www.beachlv.com/apps/concert/index.cfm. Between the "anti-Hootie leads The Who" pop/rock crunch of Poppermost and the magical pop melodies with shimmering harmonies from Tripsitter, it's a powerful combination of musicians for a powerful show.

Why should I want to be there, you ask? Simple. Poppermost and Tripsitter are going to rock your night right off its foundations. It will be so good, you might want to call off work the next day, because you expended so much energy dancing the night away!! Plus, 20 lucky Poppermost fans will receive a free drink; to learn how, just email us.

We'll see you at:

The Beach
365 Convention Center Dr
(at Paradise across from the Las Vegas Convention Center)
Las Vegas NV 89109
702-731-1925
Wednesday, November 9, 2005
Doors open at 8pm
Show starts at 9pm
$5 at the door
$2 (domestics & well) and $3 (imports & premium) drinks all night long!
Ladies receive their first drink free with paid admission

Next:
We have all dwelled upon relationships that have fallen apart. Long after the burn, we long to pinpoint the exact moment our love lives crashed. "Blood and Luck" is an outside observation of the fallout we all get to witness while our friends retrace the steps of "where it all went wrong" with the ex.

For a limited time only, you can listen to "Blood and Luck," off the Absolutely Sonic album, by visiting our web site http://www.poppermost.com/ and following the link to "Blood and Luck."

Last but not least:
We invite you to check out the marvels and benefits of MySpace.com and be our friend by clicking here.

Thanks for your support!

Poppermost Release 9/8/05

Because Poppermost Loves you! That's Why!

~~*^*~~
Anything interesting in e-mail, honey?
We got a cool e-mail from Poppermost.
Everything else is spam, hon.

Cool. What's up with the guys, honey pumpkin?
They're giving us one last chance to hear their new single,
"Love Sweet Love" for free only until September 28.
They also say they love us and miss us.

That's great; but why do we want to hear it,
honey pumpkin muffin?

Because folks are saying great things about "Love Sweet Love" like...
"Hey, the single sounds great. Really nice melody, little bit of
Beatles in lyrics." The guys say that it's a quick 2-minute
"love letter" to us and the rest of the gang.

Where can we hear it, my honey pumpkin muffin,
my heart's delight?

All right, already! I'll go to the Poppermost web site at
http://www.poppermost.com/. I'll quit putting it off!
Just cool it with the names, okay?

Thanks, but I already heard it. Since you were "too busy,"
I asked your friend Steve to help me download it. Have you
noticed that his eyes are hazel? Damn, he's fine!

(He's thinking, What just happened here?)

(She's thinking: Natalie was right. It's fun making him
squirm. Damn! I burned the popcorn.)

(He's thinking, Why didn't I listen to "Love Sweet Love?")

Seriously, though, honey, Steve and I loved the song.
You're gonna wish you had listened sooner!

(He's thinking, Enough with Steve already; I'm starting to hate that guy!)

~~*^*~~

Brought to you by Poppermost, wishing you much peace and love.
Music with good taste that tastes good.

Poppermost Newsletter: July 2005

Hot Fun In The Summertime!
Greetings from Poppermost HQ, folks! Las Vegas is running 'triple digit" temperatures and yes, it is "hotter than the hinges of hell" in Popperland. We here at Poppermost celebrated our 4th year as a band on Independence Day. Thanks to family and fan support at home and around the globe, we're still in business and still having fun making our special brand of music. Thanks for believing and here's wishing you cool relief in hot July!

Official Band Statement: Where is Poppermost?
As many of you know, the Poppermost performing schedule has been dark as of late. Many friends and fans want to know if and when we'll play to an audience again. Circumstances have dictated that we lay low for a while, but we haven't stopped recording. "Love Sweet Love," the fabled Beatles-meets-Sly Stone hybrid mentioned in our March newsletter, is done and will be available for listening soon. It's guaranteed good taste and tastes good.

Betcha By Golly Wow!
You guys honor us by choosing to listen to our music alongside your other favorite artists. Since the release of our CD last October, Poppermost has had over 2000 downloads from RadioINDY http://www.radioindy.com/jamroom/bands/43/music.php. For more info on where you can hear us (or perhaps purchase our combination Poppermost lunch box-and-thong set for "the one you love" -- we kid you not), please visit us at http://www.poppermost.com/. You'll be glad you did! Keep the cards, letters, and e-mails coming with your questions and comments. We can't do "our thing" without you guys.

Alex Pops Off: "Let It Shine" is an Open Letter to My Father
You're never gonna see another face like mine in history!
You're never gonna see the son again until you know it shines!
(lyric from "Let It Shine" by Poppermost)

Hey, Dad. It's me Alex. It's finally out of my system. I was writing a "tv show" theme song (ala "Laverne and Shirley"), and all of a sudden it happened. Emotions that I kept bottled inside of my head since I was 10 were triggered. 20-odd years of my pent-up hostility, frustration, and anger for you finally erupted, creating a 3-minute, 42-second rock song. Also uncorked were memories of the day when I decided to put you aside and model myself after the guy I wanted to be -- Jack Tripper (John Ritter) from "Three's Company."

For a long time after putting you aside, I felt I had to "shine" at everything, from school to music, because I wanted to prove that I was worthy of your time. I felt that if you saw me as among the "best and brightest," you'd telephone to say "I'm proud to call you my son." You can find easy access to the song by clicking onto http://www.numberonemusic.com/poppermost. I hope that if you hear the song, you'll find it worth 3 minutes and 42 seconds of your time. It's as much about myself as it is about you. Your move.

Time To Go
Well, that in a nutshell is our newsletter, therapy and all. Before we head back to Roy's studio, we have a request. We'd like to send birthday wishes to our families, friends, fans, and supporters from all over the world (Hello Germany and Switzerland, and thanks for listening)! Please send us your birthdays (no year required) to pop@poppermost.com so we may add them to our calendars. Speaking of which, happy birthday Emile Dixon (July 6th)! You'll always be Alex's "big brother." O.K., back to work we go. Peace and love on you!

Poppermost Newsletter: March 2005

Be It Ever So Humble . . .
Greetings from Poppermost HQ, fans! As we unpack from the road, shake off the filth, and elect someone to erase all the incriminating videotape shot inside the tour bus, we'd like to thank everyone who came to the gigs and hung out after the shows. Note for next time: when inviting friends who like consuming mass quantities of alcohol, please remind them to vomit before coming backstage (Jake the Roadie hates the clean up!).

Pumping On Your Stereo
We'd like to say thanks to everyone for purchasing, downloading, and listening to our music. Since the release of our CD last October, Poppermost has had almost 1000 downloads from RadioIndy http://www.radioindy.com/jamroom/bands/43/music.php. Votes on RateOurBand http://www.rateourband.com/rb/index.cfm?band_id=2336 have kept our latest single "Myself" at a steady 5 out of 5 stars. If you haven't already, please let us know what you think of our song by voting. It only takes a matter of seconds.

We have finally exhausted our supplies of the first pressings of Absolutely Sonic, but you can still obtain a copy of it (or any other Poppermost CDs) from CD Baby http://www.cdbaby.com/poppermost4 until we restock. Also stay tuned for further news regarding the upcoming Poppermost interview for UK's RadioGetsWild http://www.radiogetswild.com/.

Remember that you can download some free Poppermost music at Download.com. So why not go to http://music.download.com/poppermost and test drive some of our tunes (did we mention "for free")? If none of the above site suggestions tickle your peach, try the others found at http://www.poppermost.com/poppermusic.html.

Official Band Statement Concerning Tour Cut Short
O.K., fans. We'd like to set the record straight about the "misunderstanding" in a certain venue in Nova Scotia (that shall remain nameless), but are legally bound to say nothing of the incident. All we can say is that it was not a "brawl." Roy challenged club owner who tried to serve him venison. Roy, a devout and practicing vegetarian, went wild, loudly proclaiming "Meat is murder. Meat is murder." The audience for that evening's show knows what happened next (why rehash "Battle Roy-Al"). Although instructed by management not to comment on the incident, Roy quietly stated, "All I can say is that bass guitars are lethal weapons, and should only be used by trained professionals."

Where Sly and the Family Stone Meets the Beatles
After conquering Nova Scotia (and raising bail for a hasty exit), we are back in LV, locked inside Trimordial Studio recording a new single entitled "Love, Sweet Love." The song is described by Alex as "a stone groove, baby. It's where Sly and the Family Stone meets the Beatles inside my head, ya dig? Groovy."

The CD single will also contain 3 bonus tracks not found on their latest CD, Absolutely Sonic. "The great thing about Suicide Pop! Records is that label operation is modeled after British labels," says Alex about his band's label of 3 years. "Albums are albums and singles can stand on their own, as well as contain bonus songs for the fans. The Jacuzzi and inflatable dolls in the company limo are just the icing on the cake for me." Look for an early April release date.

Alex Pops Off: "California Son is a classic"
Recently, I had the good fortune of seeing local band, Tripsitter, in action at Palace Station and spending some time with their singer / songwriter / keyboardist Jeff Celentano. He floated me a copy of their latest CD, California Son. I didn't have the CD for 24 when I read a scathing one sentence review of it in a local weekly (The Mercury News); the review read (and I quote), "There is no justification for this." On the contrary, I'd like to go on record saying that California Son is the most important song cycle to come from an American band so far this decade. (So how did the Merc fumble this one? Hell, how did Rolling Stone Magazine fumble every single Zeppelin album?) Catch them, and those great harmonies, at the House of Blues (Mandalay Bay) on March 3 or visit their site at http://www.tripsitter.net to learn more about this amazing band and some great music!

Adios, Amigos! We're Outta Here!
Well, that in a nutshell is our newsletter. Until next time, remember to visit Poppermost at
http://www.poppermost.com/ and check out new songs, features, and additions. Take care of each other, and always remember to (as Otis Redding once sang) try a little tenderness. Peace on all of you, and thanks for the continued support.
