LOPPYBOGYMI - Unreleased Studio

From what I can gather ,this band was started in 1988 by Gregory Slay , James Orr ,and Tim Ramenofsky ,in Mobile ,Alabama ,but eventually settled in Nashville ,Tennessee. They play a jazz/metal/funk/hip-hop amalgamation ,which is quite trippy , at times. This disc (and the one posted above this) , were found while thrifting ,and there is no info about either of these on the web! Gregory Slay left the band in 1994 (about a year after Loppy's (as they are sometimes referred to) first album was released) , to form the band Remy Zero , who wrote the theme song to the TV show ,Smallville , "Save Me" ,and toured with Radiohead. Slay also earned an Emmy nomination for outstanding main title theme music in 2004 , for his composition of the Nip/Tuck theme song.He also played in the bands Sleepwell , Horsethief Beats ,and O+S ,as well as working with other artists. He died Jan 1 ,2010 ,at age 40,following a lifetime battle with cystic fibrosis. This stuff is great!!
