Popdose is very pleased to premiere for you the latest single from power pop master Chris Korzen, who operates under the moniker of Nezrok.  This release is pretty special, to me, especially, as it’s a song originally written and recorded by Van Duren and Jody Stephens back in the ’70’s, but never released by them – it was later issued by Mr. Duren on his magnificent Idiot Optimism album.  As it happens, Mr. Duren is singing background vocals; among the players that worked with Mr. Korzen is Dennis Diken, thunder-drummer for The Smithereens and this song just motors.  Upbeat – poppy – classic and glad to see this song finally see the light of day.

Listen to “Andy Please” and you’ll be playing it over and over and over…
