Chk chk chk side project from John XI Pugh and Gorman with a friend named Maddy.   The sound is nice departure from the guitar-driven tunes typical of !!!.   With Free Blood, their is a nice mix of electronic, punk  and pop to produce a great dance punk track.

Freezepop – Harebrained Scheme

Art school vocals and pop sensibilities dominate this track. Vocals at times remind me of someone doing the “robot” while talking, but strangely enough it’s very entertaining. And to think all from a very modest setup of a Yamaha QY70 battery powered sequencer and a Mama vocoder, talk about DIY.

Freezepop formed in 1999 in Boston, MA. and their latest album, “Future Future Future Perfect” was just release this September on Recodes — with an upgrade to their modest music studio no less.
