Andy Bopp | Time to Rock! Andy Bopp, late of groups such as Love Nut and Myracle Brah, and currently waxing tunes with Ken Schopf as The Modern Ruins (see next entry), lets loose in his living room armed with only his electric guitar and echoed vocals for a quartet of Sun-era sounding rock ‘n’ roll ‘n’ rockabilly numbers. The tracks: the title track, “Anna Lee,” “Black Heath,” and Santo and Johnny’s “Sleepwalk.” Dig these thrilling and powerful performances, all playing now in rotation.
The Modern Ruins | Bleeding Partyand Three Tracks from the Four Track Can’t get enough Bopp? Andy’s got you covered with two new 2015 releases from his duo with Ken Schopf, the Modern Ruins. These songs follow nicely from the vibe of Andy’s solo EP, Time to Rock!, only on these records Andy and his guitars are supported by Ken’s Cocktail Drum kit, percussion and backing vocals. It’s rock ‘n’ roll all the way, from the souped-up Sun-era sound of “All Fall Down (Black Heath),” which also appears on Time to Rock!, to the slow blues of the title track and a spirited, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band-esque version of David Essex’s 1973 top five hit, “Rock On.” These songs, plus three more–“Longtime,” “Rope Walker,” and “There”–are now playing in rotation. From Three Tracks from the Four Track, we’re spinning “Anytime Anyway” and “When It Rains.” Great stuff.

It IsNot Very often an established artists steps outside the comfort zone Of The Genre That made his name , & gives their fans something exciting & new , and this daring new EP from Andy Bopp (Myracle Brah/Love Nut/ Alto verde/ Bleaker Street Cowbows/Modern Ruins) Really delivers the goods. Recorded with just him & a trusty Electric Guitar that sounds Like an Old Fender Jaguar, he rocks it up like he was chilling in old sun studios. with generous amounts of slap back reverb and gets a vintage sound with out ever sounding dated. Hot on the heals of the most recient Myracle brah Ep (The Peach EP released only 2 days prior) Andy is keeping his fans musically stated & overwhelmed with the song craft that anyone who ever heard his catalog has come to expect from him. And for under 4 bucks it is a great value so pick up a copy I just did & you will be amazed!!! It's not a myracle it Just Andy dong his thang!!!!!!
