Fifth (fifth!) album from Seattle pop band, the first produced by veteran pop whiz Adam Schmitt. Within TP2K bashes out 2-3 minute melodic powerpop anthems with male and female vocals.
"HELLO, I'm Frank,me,the Bass player fellow in Toothpaste2000, here to tell you about our lovely new Parasol cd "Instant Action"! It's our best so far, and we're really pleased and excited about it! We recorded it with Adam Schmitt in the equally lovely Urbana, Illinois and Mr. S really captured our sound& our VIBE gloriously well...to describe our music is hard for me, we just try to write catchy 2 or 3-minute melodic pop anthems that rock as hard as possible! We are a powerpop trio: Donna Esposito plays loud, sexy, rock guitar & Kirk Jamieson plays Thundering Bev Bevan~esque drums, I do my best Nick Lowe impression and we all sing like fucking birds! (BYRDS?)........IF YOU LOVE: Rubber Soul, the Ramones, Badfinger, Cheap Trick, Lucinda Williams, the Pretenders, the Stooges, Pet Sounds, Let's Active, Parklife, the Velvet Underground, Nirvana, Elvis (BOTH of them...), Sex Pistols, Get yer Ya-Ya's Out, Jimmy Page, Marshall Crenshaw, the Move, the Who, the Kinks, the La's & the dB's, I think we're the band 4 U!"
