Product notities

After the demise of The Surrealtors, Jimbeazy embarked on an experimental album that would push the boundaries of suburban rock. The album name 'Walupoo' pronounced 'Wah-Loo-Poo' came from the underrated Jerry Lewis film 'Cracking Up.' The word was uttered by Lewis' character in order to undergo an operation with no anethetic. The word would reflect the attitude of the album 'no anesthetic' nothing to dull any of the senses. Walupoo was an effort to throw out any safe rock and to create an album based on emotion or feeling. It's inspiration was the first McCartney solo album 'McCartney' and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson's excellent solo effort 'Pacific Ocean Blue.' Sure, Walupoo has plenty of flaws, but the raw emotion captures more feeling than any other musical project Jimbeazy has been involved in. The handful of people who have heard has called it a 'brilliant masterpiece.' While the other handful who heard it called it 'an absolute travesty.' Although, Walupoo's roots reach back to 1989, when Jimbeazy first thought of a solo project. It was in 1999 when most of the songs were written. Seven of those were then recorded under the watchful eye of local music legend LL Cooper. Those songs: 'Waste Away,' 'So Innocent,' 'Sniffin' the Glue,' 'Make Believe' and 'Like Rain' would be locked away for the next four years. During that time, Jimbeazy would continue his Houston radio gig, then move to Philadelphia for six months on a another Radio gig, have a few more kids and then grow a 'rock star in exile' style beard to signify the end of the Walupoo project. However there is renewed interest in Walupoo. In 2007, Jimbeazy announced he would think about going back into the studio to give the album a second listen. Maybe there is hope after all. Some suburban rock historians have pieced together what would possibly be a song order for this historic release. In 2008, a bootleg of the project (mostly home demos) that have been circling around the web and Ebay. Most of the demos (although high quality) only leave Jimbeazy fans wanting more of the Suburban Rock Masterpiece that have been promised. The only thing we found was a rare demo of 'Fire Up Ol' Sparky.' Some suburban rock historians think is the song that may have brought an end to 'Walupoo.' The song was written after Jimbeazy was watching the news the day of the Carla Faye Tucker execution. Tucker was the woman who was convicted of killing with a pick ax. She was then 'reformed' in prison and found God. At the time, Tucker was about to receive a lethal injection. The news camera then panned the crowd and there was a bumpkin who had a hand-written sign that read 'Fire Up Ol' Sparky.' This sign was referring to 'Ol Sparky' - the electric chair. I guess nobody told this guy how it was going down. So, on the spot, Jimbeazy wrote this song and the lyrics were too true to the scene (including quotes from the news story about the crime scene photos). Afterwards, he thought maybe he had gone too far...then grew another 'I going into exile again' rock star beard and drunk coffee around the clock...did he lose it? Then, the biggest news hit recently in February of 2009. Walupoo would be released officially in October with a release party set for December 4, 2009 at Bohemeo's in Houston.
