Titan: It's All Pop! continues to get national notice

From the pages of The Pitch to Fricke's Picks in Rolling Stone and, most recently, to a brand-new, Minneapolis-based 'zine, locally born compilation album Titan: It's All Pop! continues to stretch its midwestern power-pop legs.

Refresher: From 1977 to 1981 in Kansas City, Tom Sorrells and Mark Prellberg built a label dedicated to releasing records by Midwest acts like the Boys, the Gems, Arlis Peach, Gary Charlson and others. In 2008, the two released a double-disc compilation CD of cuts from the original Titan! days, putting it out via Chicago's Numero Group, a label dedicated to digging up undeservedly forgotten sounds of the past. Likewise the Mpls 'zine Brain Lapse, whose first issue features a 16-page, full-color feature on our boys.

Says Brain Lapse editor Todd Mayberry:

We're a bunch of music fans that *priced the fanzine to break even*. We don't do ads, etc. Just pure content. The fanzine is 84 pages total, full-color, and glossy. It was printed on a printing press in Toronto and shipped back to us. We have features on the '60s/'70s band The Equals - a band that featured Eddy "Electric Avenue" Grant. There's a bunch of reviews and interviews featuring bands, fanzines, films, and records covering '66 through '82 (roughly). Japanese, German, French, UK, USA, Canadian, etc. This was a labor of love.
