Was just wondering if anyone else here is a fan of the synth-pop group 'Freezepop'? Yeah, I know they're not an 80's band. But considering they have a renowned 80's retro sound, I figured they deserve a spot here.

(I highly recommend picking up their latest record).

Brief Bio:
Freezepop is an American electronic band from Boston, Massachusetts.[1] They formed in 1999 with Liz Enthusiasm, Sean T. Drinkwater, and The Duke of Pannekoeken, an alias for composer Kasson Crooker. As of December 2009, the current lineup includes Enthusiasm, Drinkwater, Robert John "Bananas" Foster and Christmas Disco-Marie Sagan.[2] The band is named after the frozen snack, and the members describe their music as "sweet and cold and fruity and plastic-y".[3]

Several of the band's songs have appeared in video games, including the Harmonix titles Frequency, Amplitude, Karaoke Revolution, Phase, the Guitar Hero series, and the Rock Band series.[4][5][6] Their music has also been included in Downhill Domination and Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 3. Freezepop songs continue to appear in certain Harmonix titles. Former member Kasson Crooker currently works as a senior producer at Harmonix.

The group is popular with college students in Boston and has become part of the US synthpop scene.

I got to see them for the first time about a year ago. And I must say, the show was alot of fun. I'm hoping I get the chance to see them again. I've become a devoted fan since then, buying their cd's and cranking their tunes in my car without regard to anyone or anything I'm around. So, I was just wondering if anyone else here is a fan?

Thanks for the links, Pyro. I am only aware of the songs, Super-Sprode (which I completely forgot about until I read this post).. and the song "Swimming Pool" which I really like:

Freezepop - Swimming Pool

I will definitely check out more of their stuff, including the new record. [Smile]
