Popular opinion is that powerpop is meant to be as easily consumed (most of it, anyway) as disposed of soon after. Bugger that.
The film clip for the lead single from the debut album for Sydney powerpop-rock supergroup Loose Pills has gone live. "Get Drunk, Play Records" is on "Rx", the album that's soon to be released on China Pig Records.
For a limited time you can download the single for free here.
The I-94 Bar hosted Loose Pills' first live show way back in 2012 and went on the record as calling them "Sydney's best 'new' old band". You can read a review of their "Not The Droiver" EP here. Loose Pills are Ryan Ellsmore on vocals and guitar (Hammerfish, The Stiffies, The Scruffs), Matt Galvin on guitar and vocals (The Scruffs, Happy... Hate Me Nots, Eva Trout, Barbarellas, Orange Humble Band, Perry Keyes), Bill Gibson on bass and vocals (Orange Humble Band, The Eastern Dark, Lemonheads, Pyramidiacs, New Christs) and Stu Wilson on drums and vocals (New Christs, Atomicide, The Crisps, Hammerfish.)
Keep an eye on their Facebook or that Bandcamp site to grab the album.
