Magnapop, to me anyway, are one of those bands that, metaphorically at least, struggled to shake free of the oppressive atmosphere of early 90s grunge and indie stereotypes. They remind me of Sleeper (UK) somewhat, only a little less melodic and a lot less pop. Hailing from Georgia, they had somewhat of an uphill battle…
But hey, it’s purple vinyl!
This EP was released on April 1st 1996 shortly before the release of their 3rd studio album ‘Rubbing Doesn’t Help.’
