Album Notes
For the last four years, Popgun has been one of the top drawing bands in the Sacramento pop scene, earning critical kudos and selling lots of CDs locally. The last two of their CDs have won Sacramento Area Music Awards for CD of the Year. Now, the band has released it's third effort to date, "N.U. Machine" at www.notlame.com! The Popgun sound has been honed with razor sharp pop hooks, Moog synthesizer parts, plenty of vocal harmonies, all on top of the same viciously pretty tunes. The band, brothers Mark and Kevin Harrod, Andy Conway, Larry Carr and Steve Amaral even got some infamous friends to help out along the way. Gold-record producer David Houston (Toni, Tone, Tony) recorded it, and Greg Brown (Cake, Deathray), who wrote the smash hit "The Distance", contributed a number of key guitar parts.
The band is already expanding their fan base beyond the Sacramento area, and this record will only help increase that effort. Popgun is headed for bigger and better things, so climb on board this rocket and enjoy the ride...

Live Review:
"...(kinda reminiscent of the Cars), the harmonies were seamless, they have a great onstage presence, and gosh, they are just fun. Full of hooks and good vibes." "Hire a babysitter and get thee to the club."
-©2003 Marci Surpin www.altrock.com

The new CD by Popgun, "N.U. Machine," is the musical equivalent of Krazy Glue. In other words, it just might get stuck in your CD player once you pop it in and press "play." We're talking instantly addictive melodies, hummable harmonies and a groovy guitar buzz that's like the Kinks in a bearhug with the Cars. Little space is wasted on "N.U. Machine," with most songs snug in 2 1/2-minute packages.
-Chris Macias, Sacramento Bee Newspaper

"Popgun has released another pop gem of an album, the band's second release. This disc plays to Popgun's strengths: pop songwriting loaded with hooks. The songs on n.u. machine will stick in the corner of your ear; days later, you'll catch yourself humming the tunes as they find a path to your mouth. If there's any justice in the musical world (ha!), soon people besides Sacramentans will be caught up in the Popgun machine."
-Cary Rodda, Alive and Kicking Magazine

We may not be the only POPGUN out there, but we are the BEST!


Kevin Seconds of 7 Seconds owns POPROCKIT, he was very generous to POPGUN, we love that guy! He has done a lot for the Sacramento Scene, putting out CD's and Singles by other bands besides POPGUN, like Deathray, Grub Dog and the Amazing Sweethearts, not to mention his own incredible powerpop band Go National! Hopefully soon Kevin will be releasing more great sounds on his label POPROCKIT, check out the label's website for updates: http://www.poprockit.com/


Awesome band!
This CD is so good! Why isn't this band famous!


The other Popgun guys are dorks!
Any unsigned band that takes the time to write that crap must be totally lame. Grow up guys! By the way, your CDs are collecting dust! HA!
Oh, wait so are these!

Mr. Poprockit

Poprockit gets the shaft?
Is there a particular reason why there is NO mention of Poprockit Records? YOU KNOW, the label that actually FINANCED THE MANUFACTURING and RELEASE of 'n.u. Machine'? Talk about getting dissed.


Incredible POWER POP band!
Buy this CD, not just because I put it out, but because these are great songs!

this is not the original popgun
This is not the Spartanburg, S.C. group known as Popgun who originated in 1985. Their original cd is available for downloads at itunes and walmart. They are the original Popgun rockers and the name is trademarked, so watch out for some litigation soon. The original Popgun rocks!
