Album Notes
Pops Spoiler and his Deadbeats play blue collar rock and roll in the tradition of trash rock legends like the sonics and the raunch hands. Their cd, Trashblast, was recorded in seattle at egg studios by the legendary conrad uno who captured pops and the boys in fine, unrestrained form. Thoroughly enjoyed by all social classes, especially the ladies, their live show is better than ever and this compact disc captures their commitment to freewheeling rock and roll entertainment packed with a bonanza of catchy tunes, crazed musicianship and non-stop hip swaying.

Here's what some other folks had to say:

"I had the distinct pleasure of working with those crazy bastards...Their amusing, white trash rock and roll reminded me of a combination of Girl Trouble and Southern Culture on the Skids. I genuinely had a good time recording these beer-swilling maniacs and recommend them whole-heartedly for all your music needs."- CONRAD UNO, EGG STUDIOS

"These hard-workin', sleazy, beefy Tacoma boys get the girls shakin' their collective ass and the punks fist fighting in back. The last time I saw Pops & Co...I became so moist from dance we had to drive home with the windows down." RACHEL KESSLER, THE SEATTLE STRANGER

"Just imagine Girl Trouble as a bunch of laid-off mechanics, living in a trailer park with a $2500 guitar amp." ANNA JONES, THE TACOMA REPORTER


"The band is Pops Spoiler and his Deadbeats and they have a lot of garage and surf sounds happenin'. They also throw in some fairly humorous vocals with funny lyrics. I like a band that can make me laugh." DAN HALLIGAN, THE SEATTLE TABLET

"Instant-classic." STEVE STAV, BACKFIRE

"Travel back with them to a simpler era, when exploitation was a compliment. When zombies, juvenile delinquents and burlesque dancers ruled the earth. Return to a glorious epoch when whatever cocktails couldn't cure, penicillin surely could...Gleefully unapologetic trash rock." TAMARA PARIS, THE SEATTLE STRANGER

Hitch Magazine review by Rod Lott

Good ole slop
The Deadbeats deliver the same style of sloppy, swampy, trailer-trash rock you've come to expect from the Rev. Horton Heat or Southern Culture on the Skids. Though performed with a good natured smirk, the Deadbeats occasionally dip into the lake of lasciviousness ("Art Fuck Girls" or the self-explanitory "Do It") with aplomb. Throw in some choice werewolf-movie snippets and a whole sloppy mess o' guitars and I'll hitch a ride for a while.

Your mellow NW facade rinsed away in beer, music and lust
It's a CD that grabs you by the shirt collar and demands
immediate shots of Wild Turkey with at least a pitcher of
Brew 66... It has you piling girls you've never met into a
rented Cadillac and discovering how many different ways you
can contort, gyrate and still drive 95... One danger: It
will have you CONSTANTLY surfing the Pops Spoiler website
looking for the next live show!

The holy trinity of sex, beer and the trailer park
Recorded by Conrad Uno of Popllama Records, Trashblast is a 14-song tribute to such red-blooded American pursuits as drinking beer, fishing, and women.

Pops Spoiler and His Deadbeats tell blue-collar tales of a juvenile delinquent Lolita ("So Young So Bad"), lycanthrope angst ("(It¹s Hard to be a) Werewolf"), and "an armless wonder" in a traveling freak show ("Herr Unthan") with equal aplomb.

The band also addresses more day-to-day issues, such as in the self-explanatory "Band Van Breakdown," and drinking beer with one's grandmother in a trailer ("Grandma"). The instrumentation nicely meshes with the album's subject matter -­ a surf/garage rock blend at times reminiscent of Southern Culture On the Skids, The Cramps, and Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper.

The back cover of the CD claims that Trashblast is "Trailer Tested for Full Range!", and I believe it. The holy trinity of sex, beer, and the trailer park gives the album an air of Americana that resonates nicely in this time of patriotism.
