Poppets - Do You Know? 7"
I am having quite the good run finding records lately and hunting down this 7" is the culmination of another decade plus search. Even though few will probably realize how crazy it is to have found this record (aside from @AlanRappa), picking this 7" up is a huge deal to me! I first heard of Poppets from a 7" they released called Down & Out. It was on a Spanish label and boy oh boy did I love that record. I knew they had another 7" and have been looking for it for years. Well, thanks to the want list function on discogs.com, I was notified that someone had this and put it up for sale. Sure $30 for the record and $18 to ship it from Japan seems like too much money, and for most people, it probably would be. But when I have the chance to grab a record that has been eluding me since 1997, I will happily pay that.
The songs on the record are just what i expected since I have their other 7" and the CD they released in '98. We've got 4 Zoinks!/early Green Day-ish songs from this sadly overlooked Norwegian band. I cannot find any songs from this band (from any of their records) hosted online anywhere, so I am sorry I can't share any of their music. Rest assured that this is good stuff and it really takes me back 15 years or so...
