NYC's ragged rock renegades play fun, fresh and melodic PunkPower Pop. Strong vocals, fun lyrics and mid-fi rockin' guitars. APW is punk rock with a twist of lemon. Think GBV and Replacements crossed with Bram Tchaikovsky and Joe Jackson.

POP: Power Pop, ROCK: Punk

RAPID POP THRILLS is the 2002 CD from NYC's Anthemic Pop Wonder! APW was a rock and roll band in New York City led by songwriter/rocker Dave Murrow (aka Dfactor). From Nuggets-era garage stompers to new wave slammers, punk anthems to snappy singalongs, Anthemic Pop Wonder songs take you away with an arsenal of hooks, blasts and levitation.
Dfactor was the main man behind Anthemic Pop Wonder. Today in summer 2004, he's currently readying new songs for recording. Hear Dfactor's recent recordings here:
Since its release, APW's RAPID POP THRILLS garnered terrific reviews from a lot of cool places. Here's a smattering:

The Big Takeover (Issue 52) - "The second full-length from this New York-based project is a garage rock fan's dream. With a batch of tunes that sound like they were recorded on authentic late-60s vintage equipment, APW hits all the right marks. From the Creation-styled leanings of "Here's My #1" to the Sonics-reminiscent "Masterminds", Dfactor, the strangely named auteur behind this LP, has a fine mastery of rock history. And he isn't content to limit himself to mining the 1960s. A few tunes, including the obviously named "How Great Was Husker Du!" also show an affection and aptitude for the sounds of the early American underground. Mr. Factor avoids making a record for musos-only by remembering one simple thing: It's about the tunes. And for that, one can forgive him his pretensions." - "With the swing and swagger of 70's garage punk and the energy of today's revivalist culture, APW bring a sweet, sweet dish of lo-fi pop and rock to the table...."

Twinstar Revolution - "Anthemic Pop Wonder hail from the big apple but they are not garage rock, and they don't sound like the plethora of bands jumping on the "Noo Yawk" inspired scene at the moment. For this reason alone I found them refreshing...."

Loud & Found - "...(APW's) song lyric skills are a big ol' breath of fresh air especially when you look at the endless drivel currently mustering out there.."

PopMatters - " the tradition of his hero Bob Pollard, David Murrow (a.k.a. Dfactor) dares you not to love his button-down hooks and quavery melodies. Really, this stuff is pretty endearing, a love affair with music that just makes your heart melt."

Erasing Clouds - "This is a hell of a pop-rock record, with as many catchy hooks and huge-sounding guitar riffs as anyone needs to have a good time. Recorded DIY-style with a lo-fi sound, Rapid Pop Thrills is all about old fashioned rock and roll fun, whether Dfactor's singing about rock itself or about love or friendship or the world around us."

Splendid Ezine - "Above and beyond their scattered pop-cultural references and in-your-face guitar work, Anthemic Pop Wonder have made Rapid Pop Thrills untimely and moving."

Glorious Noise - "Anthemic Pop Wonder's catchy little rock songs immediately brought me back down to Andy Sheneman's basement where I watched my friends' band record a handful of songs into their newly purchased four-track..."

Shredding Paper - "APW reminds me alot of MOTO, certainly a compliment. Medium fidelity garage pop with some strong tunes like We're Comin' Inside and Hero for a Friend and more. Energetic unpretentious fun."
