Canadian power pop supergroup Los Popularos were active from 1980-1983. Hailing from Vancouver B.C the band's members were all musicians of note from other recognized punk rock acts like Pointed Sticks and the Dils.
Over the course of three years between touring and local shows, they wrote and delivered a four song EP and a 7" single. Eventually disbanding, Art Bergmann started Poisoned catapulting him to a Juno award winning solo career and Buck Cherry reformed the Modernettes to deliver the EP "View From The Bottom" (PHR-2024).
We've assembled a sixteen song retrospective of the band and recovered eight never heard songs from various demos in the process. Lounge lizards will love "Fickle Flame" and "Formula" might be the single that the band let get away. This digital collection includes a 15 page E-booklet with never seen photos as well as stories from John "Buck Cherry" Armstrong and others.
Critically lauded but commercially unsuccessful Los Popularos were a truly great rock band with a stellar line up and smart songs who for a moment seemed poised to have it all. We're pleased to be able to revisit that era and show you what was and what might have been.
You can stream the entire album at the band's Artist Destination on our website's main page and "Can't Come Back" the Digital Double album is now available for purchase in our record store.
