Accident Waiting to Happen

Sounds Rad 1.2

Released on April 13, 2018


Vinyl LP pressing of 100 Orange with smoke and 400 black.

Digitally remastered, re-sequenced and expanded edition. The punk rock chupacabras known as The Mopes have been sighted off and on since their series of releases on Lookout Records in the mid-nineties (playing a range of one-off shows). The Mopes are sort of an all-star band of buds consisting Dan Vapid and John Jughead (Screeching Weasel), B-Face (The Queers), and Dan Lumley (Squirtgun). The idea was simple: to create a band to play songs written by each member during downtime from their respective bands. The product was Accident Waiting to Happen, an 11-song album that has gained a cult following among fans of their individual bands-widely considered one of the best albums produced during the late Lookout era. This album is an absolute classic that flew under the radar in a crowded release schedule in the mid-nineties. Now, 18-years later, the album has been resurrected with new artwork and a re-sequenced master by Mass Giorgini at Sonic Iguana. The album also includes two unreleased tracks, "The Getaway" and "Circle K".

Great cd,Vapid's vocals are as good as i've heard from him,a quality collection of songs which varies from the softer,heartfelt tracks to the more rockin' then onto the spaghetti western instrumentals.I don't know how to say goodbye,not a word,baby doll and my heart won't bleed for you are my personal faves but they're all great and a must have for all you weasel,queers,ghoulies fans.I've pretty much had it on repeat since purchase it's that damn good people!!

I like Dan Vapid/Schafer's voice and all, but this was just kinda bland. The instrumentals were pretty ok but not that special. Honestly, if this didn't have ex-Screeching Weasel and Queers folks, I couldn't imagine anyone being that excited about it. Its not terrible, but not terribly impressive, either.

The first five songs on here are pretty good but the rest of this album gets pretty boring afterwards. If you got some cash to spare, nothing else you want to buy, and you are a fan of Vapid’s work (Screeching Weasel, Riverdales, Methadones) then this might be worth checking out.

Leave it to the guys at Lookout to release yet another side project of homogenized but catchy gems. None of the songs on the album stand out but it is a good one to put on and not think about.. just a catchy rock n roll record that doesn't bring on anything new.. it doesn't challenge the mind or push any parameters. It's only distinction is its little surf twist. If you're into the Queers/Screeching Weasel/etc. you'll like it. Just a note to Lookout, it's not shit yet, but it will be.

Do you like the Queers? If so, buy this. It's good poppy punk, maybe a little bit slower, but it sounds good, and I've been listening to it alot lately, and I like of every song except "She Fell For Me." Plus, there's surf music on it, and that's always a good thing.

I dont listen to this ever, in fact i pawned it just the other day. Its not bad but its just nothing new. The surf instrumentals were cool though. Dont waste your money though.

Man does this album kick my ass. Great tracks from a great songwriter(Vapid), including some really cool surf instrumentals that you'll like if you're a Ventures fan. The rest of the tracks are what you'd expect from an ex-Screeching Weasel/Riverdales member, very Ramones-ish. Highly recommended.
