"Tip of The Week: MOPP - A Day Needs More Love"

Barry Mop. What a name! There's no way you could be blessed with a name like Barry Mop and not include it in your band name. In fact, you would probably put it in capital letters just to show it off, and that's just what the chap behind this week's tip has done.

MOPP is Scottish multi-instrumentalist-producer Barry Mop and vocalist/songwriter Stevie McCrorie. You only have to listen to the first line of this track to realise that these lads are Scottish and proud, and a refreshing change from the wannabe American synthesized accents that all too often make you feel sick during the first line of an electronic track.

MOPP supported the likes of Chew Lips, Hurts, Darwin Deez and Everything Everything whilst on the Scottish leg of the NME Radar Tour, and played at T in the Park 2010.

When I searched the web for images of the group, I discovered MOPP also stands for Mission Oriented Protective Posture, but thankfully the boys don't dress like they are about to engage in chemical warfare when they perform (although some might argue T in the Park is a highly toxic environment, it's perfectly safe, really...).

This track - A Day Needs More Love - is a corker, which is why we've made it the latest tune to occupy our slot on the Radio 1 daytime playlist. If it brings just a tiny bit more love to your day, then our work is done. - BBC Introducing Website
