New album from Paul Collins, who, I would agree, is THE KING OF POWERPOP!Alive agrees!King Of Power Pop
is the new studio album by Paul Collins, one of the originators of the high-energy pop sound known as power pop.
Paul got his start in the late seventies as the drummer for the legendary NERVES
, (with Peter Case and Jack Lee,) later forming The BREAKAWAYS
with Peter Case, and finally starting The BEAT, or PAUL COLLINS BEAT in 1979. King Of Power Pop!
his third record of this century is a complete return to his roots, to
power pop, the sound he helped create and popularize, a sound that has
seen a resurgence in recent years, a sound that is here to stay!
"For me this is the record that connects the dots, from
The Nerves to The Breakaways to The Beat to today… this is the record
that puts it all together!"
— Paul Collins
