Finally got to see Lollipop Factory live in Philly this past weekend, and wrote about it on my blog. Was having a discussion over some cocktails with the band's guitarist, David Tweed, who noticed my shirt and commented that Robin Zander is one of his favorite vocalists. He and the band are also mentioned in the Jellyfish box set, "Fan Club", and is featured on the demos. Love this band- if you get a chance, check them out!
Made a video for my current favorite song from the first release. Here's "ReaLife". Incredible song- Power Pop with heavy influences of Klaatu, Jellyfish, Queen and all of the like. Great lyrics (one of the best choruses I've ever heard), insane harmonizing and lead vocals, tempo changes and smoking lead guitar.

This song has it all- if it doesn't stick in your head after hearing it twice, you're not alive. My official "wake up" song Tongue

Enjoy....
Wow- almost 50 views and no reply (other than my own)? This thing on? Should I have started a Dancing With The Stars or Charlie Sheen thread instead? I figured this would be right up a few of yours alley. dontknow.gif

I like it. It definitely has a Jellyfish/Queen vibe with a little Mika thrown in.

Right on, kevintonight- glad you liked. The whole CD is fantastic, I recommend to any lover of Power Pop (which is probably, everyone here). Great music! rockon.png.gif
