"Under The Microscope" is taken from The Pop's major label debut album, "Go" from 1979.
The "Go" album is filled with infectious "power pop" from start to finish....
The Pop had released a prior independent album in 1977 called, "The Pop" & they wouldnt release anything again until the mini lp , "Hearts & Knives" in 1981.....
Although The Pop struggled for years on the L.A. scene before finally getting their music out, the records they released in the short span between 1977 and 1981 show them rapidly evolving, pushing the boundaries of pop to include not just their original influences which rapidly developed into a pop-punk hybrid sound of crunchy and jangly guitars but also the more modern sounds they were listening to on David Bowie's "Low" and Brian Eno's "Another Green World" as well. The proof is in the amazing guitar sounds that saturate their Arista LP, "GO!" The bands guitarists liked to boast that they could do anything on guitar a synthesizer could do but cooler and one listen to "Beat Temptation" or "Under The Microscope" backs this up.
