The Uptones were selling out night clubs when they were still Berkeley High School students. Uptones’ founders, Eric Din and Paul Jackson sit down with Bay Area music journalist, Joel Selvin, and talk about why they choose to be a Berkeley Ska Band. The podcast includes lots of Uptones music. It’s worth a listen, and makes me proud to be a small part of this narrative. Listen to the podcast, you’ll really enjoy it!
I love Power Pop.
I love electric guitars.
And I love songs that mean something.
Here’s the wikipedia definition of Power Pop:
“Power pop is a popular musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop and rock music. It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices such as strong melodies, clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are usually kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed.”
I GOT REALLY LUCKY.
I got to make a Power Pop recording in 2015.
The artist is Matt Jaffe and the Distractions.
What’s more sensational for me is that these talented musicians also love Power Pop!
Matt Jaffe is a tremendous songwriter!
Check out some really good writing on “Put Your Finger In The Socket.”
The first song we completed together is now a video.
We didn’t use samples
Everyone on this recordings is alive.
As well as Matt Jaffe and the Distractions,
these folks helped make this recording possible
