The Shimmer Kids Underpop Association lived, played and recorded in San Francisco from 1996-2004. Most of us are now The Society of Rockets.

Revolutionary Uses of the Pop Song

The pop song is the expression of transcendence in 3 minutes. It is the untouchable tune that stays with you and is unpolluted, uncatalogued, and maybe not even fully understood. It is ambiguity and purity in sonic form, the transformation of electricity into natural emotion.

The music of revolution is the music of personal desire. No one’s desires can fit into words, no one’s dreams and loves and hates can be confined upon a page. If it is beyond definition, they will never be able to sell it to you. If it is pure, immediate, unbound, then it cannot be stopped. Viva la Underpop Internactionale!
