Bring It On!
Bring It On! Is the second full-length release by rock 'n' rollers, HorrorPops! The album is a creepy, catchy, sexy, sordid, booze-drenched maelstrom of, needle prick guitar riffs, chest rattling bass, and ear-popping drums that is sure to grab you by the ears and twist 'em until they fall off!
Songs like "Hit 'N Run," "Bring It On!" and "Walk Like A Zombie" are prime examples of what this talented bunch are capable of. Their special brand of music can not be labeled as one type of music - so they chose to just call it Rock! This album is truly a curiously dark musical jewel that almost anyone

Breaking out of line from the zombies of Cramps wannabes and psychobilly clones, Bring It On! liberally borrows from straight-up punk rock to give The HorrorPops a bit of life. Of course, singer/bassist Patricia Day’s vocals – she’s one part Siouxise Sue and one part Gwen Stefani – make getting into the ’Pops’ bopping punkabilly a lot easier. Day and drummer 009dermeier lay down straight-from-the-’50s rockabilly rhythms with slapped bass and four-on-the-floor 4:4 drum work leading the act through swinging hillbilly rhythms. Instead of dipping into the worn-out world of creepy psychobilly rhythms, however, guitarists Kim Nekroman and Geoff Kresege rifle through punk’s bag of tricks to add a melodic, powerful punch to the band’s rhythm section. Instead of reinventing the Zombie Elvis vibe, Bring It On! acknowledges its place in the punk underground with a hearty dose of modern zip.
Similarly, Day doesn’t dwell on themes of the supernatural or creatures of the night, giving her songs a lot more substance than typical psychobilly. Don’t think it’s an accident, either: Album opener “Freaks in Uniform” condemns the conformity of the punk and psychobilly underground. Other albums touch on everything from tales of love gone wrong (“Hit’N’Run” and “Caught in a Blonde”) to simple drunken revelry (“Crawl Straight Home”) or pledges of devotion (“Undefeated”).
The HorrorPops might crawl around in the psychobilly underground, but they have bigger things on their mind than simple issues of credibility. They’re here to rock, one way or another, and have more to say than stupid tales of B-movie horrors. It’s enough to rescue psychobilly from the rut the genre settled into so long ago. Bring it on, indeed.
