New song "Sweet Love" posted

Here's another one for ya! This is a simple mellow groove feel good tune to bop yer head at. It just makes ya groove! It's got some guitar and synth leads, B3, and even a bit o' trumpet to make ya happy.

This released version will likely go through another mix or two but probably no new tracking! Check it out: Sweet Love.

New song "Bottom Feeder" posted

New mix of "Hero" posted

5/27/2010

Things continue to be slow for the Poppa, now the excuse is the NBA Playoffs (Go Suns!)... But, even while game 5 of Suns v. Lakers is in progress a new mix is being posted of the band's song "Hero".

The new version has the final bass track (recorded 5/22/2010) and sports a new mix as a result. This version MAY get another mix or two but it's getting close! Check it out: Hero.

New mix of "Coming To" posted

5/2/2010

Things have been slow on the Poppa Vein home front due to new mixing strategies... We think it's payin' off though - check out the new version of Coming To to see for yourself.

Raw Meat just wasn't digging the bass on the original version - it made the doors of his Corvette rattle too much (but at least it was still a Corvette!). The new version has a tamed bass synth and the rest of the parts got some new treatment as well. Hope ya like it!

New demo song "Hero" posted

2/27/2010

The first news item of 2010? What's taking so effen long? Regardless - Poppa's uploaded a new demo tune you can feast on called "Hero".

This song tells about Meat's search for a role model when he was a youngin. You can listen to it or download it for free at Poppa Vein Tunes.

12/22/2009

This new song is a hard hitting song about stranglehold relationships. You can listen to it or download it for free at Poppa Vein Tunes.

New song "Bad Luck" posted

12/5/2009

Okay - this song has been in the works for over a year. And a version without any singing was released a week earlier. But, this is getting close to being done and you can check it out and let the boys know what you think about it.

You can listen to it or download it for free at Poppa Vein Tunes.

New song "Now I See" posted

New song "Outside My Door" posted

Another new song from The Poppa Vein Band is underway, called "Outside My Door". It's not complete yet but you can check out the progress on the tune as well as listen to it or download it for free at Poppa Vein Tunes.

This song was inspired by the producer of an upcoming independent slasher/horror movie and it may be used on the soundtrack. It's got a heavier guitar and B3 than most of the other Poppa songs. Let the boys know what you think of it!

Poppa Vein CD "In Vein" Started!

7/4/2009

It's started. Tell your friends and relatives - the new Poppa Vein CD has broken ground! Dead Nuckles is back in action, dubbing this CD "In Vein". It's along the same rockin' "vein" as the other Poppa Vein songs and it's showing a bit more diversity of the other stuff in the boy's veins as well.

Poppa Vein Live Band Setback

6/10/2009

Another setback for the Poppa Vein live band. Due to a huge lack of progress, mainly following the drummer's broken ankle, the bass player and drummer are being replaced. The search is on for some new guys able and willing to play the Poppa Vein set! Stay in tune...

Bad Blood CD Released!

6/8/2009

The Bad Blood CD is available!

It's here! The moment you've been waiting for! The Bad Blood CD was released through CD Baby on 6/8/2009!

You can visit http://www.CDBaby.com/PoppaVein to order your CD or download MP3s! Have fun!

Bad Blood CD!

5/22/2009

The Official Bad Blood CD is almost here!

The wait is just about over! The CD release is expected in the first part of June, and it will be available on CD Baby, Amazon, Rhapsody, and other outlets.

Unfortunately, this means that the free full downloads that have been available on the Poppa Vein website will be removed and replaced with short snippets.

New MP3's!

4/6/2009

Poppa's posted a couple of "draft" versions of some new tunes "Bad Luck" and "Party with Poppa Vein" on the "Tunes" page ( http://www.poppavein.com/Tunes.aspx ). Be sure to check them out!

"Bad Luck" is a joyous little song about having your luck get better.

"Party with Poppa Vein" is a basic rockin' tune about getting to go rock out at a bar with Poppa Vein.

Back in Action!

3/29/2009

Woo Hoo! The drummer's back! The boys got together for the first time in 6 months to see if they could break his ankle again but it held out.

They went through pretty much all the tunes, a couple of them even more than once, and they didn't sound at all like they'd been unplayed for 6 months. In fact, they even came up with a couple new grooves.

A new neighbor stopped by who'd never heard the boys, and he heard just some jamming on a new chord progression for 5 minuts or so. When the boys stopped, he said "Wow - you guys have been together for a long time haven't you? You really play off of each other a lot. I hear some Stevie Ray Vaughan in there!"

New Web Comments

11/09/2008

The boys added some new functionality to their website - you can now post a comment or just leave a trail of blood behind ya to let everyone know you visited the website.

There've been quite a few visitors to the site but no one ever says much. A few people have emailed the boys (at info@poppavein.com) suggesting they add a message board area on the web. Well, they listened and they did it. Leave a message today!

You can post a message at: http://www.PoppaVein.com/Comments.aspx

Band Member Injured!

9/15/2008

Another setback dammit! The band's new drummer broke his ankle so the boys are going to have to wait a bit longer before finishing up their new tunes for the live act.

It may be into 2009 before they're able to start practicing again.

Breathless_GRL Premier

8/30/2008

Mr. Huckabone's been hard at work on his movie "Breathless_GRL" and has scheduled the premier showing on September 16, 2008. There will be a cameo of two Poppa Vein songs in the movie, playing on the radio during a driving scene. How cool is that?

Personnel changes

8/30/2008

It's been a while since there's been an update here - so here ya go...

The original Poppa Vein singer, keys, bass player, etc., has moved on to other thingies. The rest of the guys are in the process of finding a new belter, who hopefully brings some other instrument capabilities as well. The boys are lookin' for someone to help create a new sound while preserving the groove of their existing songs.

Bad Blood CD Release Update #2

6/10/2008

The Hard Drive recovery effort results are in - and it sucks. Very little was recovered from the hard drive. It's time to start fresh on the remaining songs: You Can't Touch, Holiday, Life In A Box, and Dream Of More (You Can't Touch recording was finished, but not the mixing).

I guess it shows how important backups are, eh? This loss occured when using Norton Partion Magic on the drive. It had been used before, but this time it encountered an error while running and the 160 G worth of contents were lost. The boys tried three different recovery software packages before sending it out to the pros - all with the same results: nothing worth anything was recovered.

Poppa Vein Live Band!

6/8/2008

It looks like some good news on the Live Band front - the band has finally come together with a line up for a live show! The new guys fill in on drums and bass, and the old bass player, Dead Nuckles, will take over full time singin'. Oh, he may still play a bit-o-bass, but the new guy will be the main man dishing out the low end.

There will be more on this soon, as soon as we figger out what their names are. The upside is that the boys will soon be able to get out and play live! Keep watchin'...

Bad Blood CD Release Update

5/16/2008

The boys have had a setback that's causing the delay of the release of Bad Blood. The songs were being recorded onto a computer hard disk drive and the disk and the backup system failed, and they've lost all of their tracks at this point.

The hard disks have been sent out to see if they can be recovered but it's taking time. If they can be recovered, the boys will be back in business. If not, they'll be starting from scratch on at least Holiday, Life In A Box, and Dream Of More. They may re-track You Can't Touch since the version available on this website was a very rough mix after the final tracking session for the song.

Because of the delay, Poppa Vein has decided to post the last demo versions of Holiday, Life In A Box, and Dream Of More on their website.

"Breathless_GRL" Movie Update

5/16/2008

Randy Huckabone of RnR Films said their movie Breathless_GRL should be finished editing by June 6, 2008.

Bad Blood CD Release Delayed

3/26/2008

You're gonna have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on a copy of Poppa Vein's CD "Bad Blood". For various personal reasons, the recording, mixing, and mastering process is taking longer than expected. The band hopes to have the CD ready by May, 2008.

The Bad Blood CD will contain 10 songs. Currently "Bad Blood", "Take Me", "Wah Wah Faces", "Steamroller", "If You See Kaye", and "Rest In Pieces" are finished. The boys finished recording for "You Can't Touch" on 3/23/2008 and it is waiting the final mixing and mastering. "Life In A Box" is currently being recorded. "Holiday" and "Dream Of More" still need recording.

Bye Bye to RADIOARIZONA.NET

3/20/2008

The streaming web radio site Radio Arizona that the Poppa was on has changed their format from an Arizona Bands Only format to playing the same stuff you can get anywhere else.

It's not clear if the Poppa Vein songs are still being played, but it appears as though they won't be, and the boys are no longer planning to submit their lovely songs to the station.

Wah Wah Faces on RADIOARIZONA.NET

2/20/2008

The streaming web radio site www.radioarizona.net will be adding "Wah Wah Faces" to the rotation! This makes 3 of the Poppa's tunes on the station. Be sure to listen for it!

Steamroller Gettin' Close

1/28/2008

The guys got some work done on Steamroller over the last weekend, adding some keys and layin' down another mix.

It's still got a bit of work, like re-recording the vocals, but they decided to put it up on the web anyway.

You can check it out on the Tunes page. Make sure to read the lyrics and keep and don't assume that they're being nice.

Poppa Vein #1

1/24/2008

The Poppa Vein website comes up as the top listing on Google when you search for "Poppa Vein".

Yeah, it's geeky shit but after only having the site up less than a couple of weeks, it's kinda cool! These guys have had marriages that didn't last that long!

Wah Wah Faces Released

1/23/2008

The boys have just about finished up their song "Wah Wah Faces" for the Bad Blood CD. They've got it posted on the site now - but only for a limited time. Once the CD is released this version won't be available!
