"The Weekly Volcano"

"With it's embryonic web of warm, fuzzy guitars, thick harmonies, and resonant alto female vocals, Narcotic Lollipop is a band that operates fully on it's own terms: who's sound hearkens back to the era when indie-rock expectations were slapped to cry." - Ron Swarner


"South of Mainstream"

"If you're anything like me, you aren't living in the past, but you remember the heyday of bands like The Pixies, Sebadoh and My Bloody Valentine, as well as several others. And you might, also like me, wish that you could find new music that instills the same raw emotion and indie appeal without kowtowing to the mass influence of record label honchos and radio station idiocy.

Narcotic Lollipop brought me moments of that raw indie music appeal. The self titled EP has moments of brilliance, like the fantastic fuzzy guitar sound of "Twisted Come", which is dark, sinisterly sensual and completely compelling. The vocals are hazy and husky, full of raw warmth that is immediately intoxicating. Musically there are gems as well. The fantastic instrumental sound of "Hesitate" had my finger hovering over the repeat button with each listen."

"Radio Crystal Blue"

"Narcotic Lollipop is great! You're tapping into all of my sonic heroes, Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, definitely worth airplay on Radio Crystal Blue!" - Dan Herman


"The Puyallup Herald"

"Their music, raw and brooding at times, emotionally charged at others, is difficult to define..From one song to the next they will rock you, slow you down, or rip out your guts with an emotional revelation." - Mark Hines

Bio

Ahead of the explosion of boy-girl rock duos, Narcotic Lollipop has and will continue to remain unconventional, on and off stage.

Narcotic Lollipop began recording their lo-fi alterna pop via analog 8-track in early 1999, compiling an impressive catalogue of underground gems. Utilizing an Alesis HR-16 (drum machine) allows the duo to be completely self-sufficient in the studio and during live performances; providing listeners with strong melodic lines, warm waves of fuzz, and sensually strong female vocals.

Hannah Rae and Grandma Caesar bring an interesting list of influences to the band, encompassing several decades of rock.

From early staples like The Beatles, David Bowie, and Chicago Transit Authority, to the current indie stylings of Guided By Voices, Yo La Tengo, and Frank Black and The Catholics, pop reigns high.

Also giving kudos to underground pioneers such as Daniel Johnston, The Butthole Surfers, and Sonic Youth gives an experimental edge to the songwriting of Narcotic Lollipop. Critics and reviewers often cite Pixies, Sebadoh, and Dinosaur Jr. when describing the lo-fi indie credibility of the Narcotic Lollipop sound.
