Thrift Store Halo, an Indie Power Pop band Chicago, IL, originally formed in 1995, and returned in 2017, with POP-ROCKET, its first release since 1998.
Displaying a keen appreciation for Midwestern Power Pop and British Pop-Rock, original members, Frank Gradishar (Vocals, Bass, Songwriting) and Scott Proce (Drums) are joined by guitarist/songwriter Lance T. the original bassist in Material Issue (featured on the International Pop Overthrow LP) and guitarist/songwriter in The Lupins (see Dumb & Dumber Soundtrack).
Within in weeks of release, songs off POP-ROCKET began receiving strong airplay on over 70 stations around the world and have charted 202 times on multiple indie chars, including 26 weeks on the Radio Indie Alliance Top 40; reaching #1 twice (8.28.17 and 10.2.17). Tracks off the band's debut "World Gone Mad", LP (1998), were featured on TV shows "Party of Five", "Smallville" and various MTV programs, including "Undressed" and "Making the Video: R.E.M.").
Richard Rossi of POWER POP NEWS said of POP-ROCKET: "Catchy tunes that fit well within the classic power pop template used by bands such as Cheap Trick, Fountains of Wayne and early Tom Petty. “I’m Not Through” is first rate guitar pop with it’s shout aloud chorus and memorable melody...“Save Me From Myself” has the catchy chorus and crunchy guitars that place it head and shoulders above the others. While it’s only one of several quite enjoyable songs on Pop Rocket, it’s the standout single for me."
