POPO are two brothers from Philadelphia - Zeb and Shoaib - who started showing up at the Mad Decent mausoleum for all night practice sessions, battling Diplo to see who could work the longest (I think POPO won).As a two man group they've been zeroing in on a sound that combines their live instrumentation with the electronic programming that they've been been cranking out on an old tower PC. They play a really dirty, reverb drenched, garagey brand of punk rock with songs that rarely break the 3 minute barrier. And while they have been compared to greats like the Germs and early Nirvana, we can assure you the POPO sound is all their own. The FADER says: Lately we’ve been listening to a whole bunch of bands that sound like they record all their music on a Talkboy in an alley behind a strip club, but so far only POPO have captured the elusive what-would-happen-if-we-made-music-from-the-bottom-of-a- trash-can sound.
