Mad Oppy

Mad Oppy was formed by Jeremy Beck in New York City and was active from ca. 1980-88. Although certain changes of personnel occurred during that time, the principal members were:

Jeremy Beck - vocals, bass, keyboards
Gregory Alper - tenor sax, keyboards
Yves Gerard - drums, percussion
Adam Morrison - piano, keyboards
Diane Quist - vocals
Drew Zingg - guitars

Mad Oppy recorded one album, "Locked," which was recorded and mixed at Secret Sound Studio, NYC, September-October, 1983. It features the principal members listed here and was originally released in 1984 on Global Communications Records (which no longer exists). The bonus track, "Why Can’t I Let You Go?" was recorded a few years later in a 16-track studio on Warren Street in Tribeca.

Mad Oppy sporadically performed in various Manhattan clubs during the 1980s, including appearances at The Bitter End, SNAFU, and Eric's. Disenchanted with the popular music industry, Jeremy later moved on to other projects and so ended the band's adventures.
