Pop-O-Anthology: 1984-1993 CD
Reissue of the Second
(with Faith No More backing Joey up) and Third albums from Joe Pop-O-Pie
as well as a '93 single and a pair of unreleased tracks from said time.
Alas, the original version of "Truckin'" and the rest
of the tracks from "The White EP" are missing (licensing difficulties
with original label 415 perhaps) but you do get the "slow version".
Joe took the
piss out of everything from hardcore clichés to musicbiz types
to New York Shitty, injecting some Flipperish elements (said band also
not known to embrace clichéd punk formula) into the music at times.
The later tunes actually sound like a pop-punk 45 slowed down to
33. Not everything stands the test of time, and "Truckin'"
MK I is missed indeed, but overall worthwhile.
