Andy Bopp: Dixie Fried

Andy Bopp: Dixie Fried

 

(by Natan Press) Baltimore’s Andy Bopp is one of the city’s true treasures; a pop-song magician on par with Matthew Sweet and Jon Brion, the artistic progeny of Alex Chilton and Paul Westerburg , a high priest of Ray Davies and Paul McCartney. He’s perhaps best known as the one man band Myracle Brah, a project that has so far generated 7 exquisite albums between 1998 and 2007.

Andy’s first band, the energetic Love Nut, caught the ear of Interscope records and released Bastards of Melody, which, along with the likes of Sloan and Fountains of Wayne, made post-punk power pop the next big thing (or so we hoped). The majors thought otherwise, no doubt, and Love Nut’s second album, Baltimucho! was almost lost in some basement in Santa Monica until it was finally released by the much smaller Big Deal Records in 1999.

More recently, in 2011, Andy and his new-yet-now-also-defunct band Alto Verde released Paper Clips, or what Weezer would sound like if Rivers Cuomo was obsessed with Alex Chilton instead of Brian Wilson. It’s a shame Alto Verde will not be releasing any new songs in the near future. The same can be said for Myracle Brah. What are Andy Bopp’s fans supposed to do? We got in touch with Andy to find out, click here for more on that...
