The Tapes are a NYC four piece that formed in 1981 and I think are still at it to present date. This was the bands first single; another single followed in 1984 with the tunes "Too Many Stars", and "Just Like In The Movies". After the murder of a band member and some other shake ups, the band reformed in 1986 as Bill Popp and the Tapes. I think this side of the sleeve is actually the back; but I prefer it out of the two sides so I figured I would use it. The tapes have a number of full lengths to their credit as well. If you would like to read more about the band you can check out their Myspace, orBill Popp.Com.
Shotgun Solution's main purpose is to share my passion for pre 1990's records and underground music. If your a band, label, etc. looking for exposure or if you want to contact me about anything to do with post 1990's music; check out my new blog, called Neoteric Melodies. For anything else or if your not into having your record featured here, you can contact me here, enjoy!
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on this linkto see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days.. If you think you might be able to help me out on any of these... Please Email Me at: email@example.com
