"this summer was the 10 year anniversary of the release of "The New Sound" and in my opinion,it still holds up rather well for what it was. a garage rock/pop album,by a garage band,recorded in a garage studio. At the time of it's release,the band was unhappy with the finished product and when they played their last show 3 years later, they had dropped all but one song from the setlist. But 10 years is a long time. Listening to OPdub's "New Sound" now, in spite of the production or the overall quality of the performance itself, I can't deny the appeal of the songs. "Champagne Headache" is still the greatest hit single that never was and sticky wads of stoner bubblegum like "Morning Cigarette" & "Master Plan" were always crowd pleasers during OPW's live shows. The mammoth 11 minute "Freudian Slip/Partly Cloudy" seems less like filler material and more like an epic album closer and erratic numbers like "Sloppy" have aged gracefully,probably because of their wackiness. There's always a looming threat that the band could reunite and release a 2nd studio effort, and some new Orange Punch Warfare might be interesting, but this debut release is still exactly what the title implies." "The New Sound of Orange Punch Warfare" is available @ Amazon.com CDBaby itunes,napster,and other on-line music outlets.
