John e. explains why Suburban Noize Records works so well for OPM. "We really love the creative freedom we have by being with Suburban Noize. Our goal is to create music that people enjoy, including ourselves. At Suburban Noize, we have total creative independence. Also, there is a community among the artists as opposed to the major label hierarchy between bands. They allow artist development to happen naturally by taking the time to plant seeds and grow roots."OPM has sold over one million units around the world.California Poppy is a record that takes OPM back to their roots. Rooted in California , the band takes pride in what has influenced their lifestyle and music. Local artists like Sublime, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane's Addiction, No Doubt and NWA have had a huge impact on their sound. In the spirit of the Beach Boys, OPM truly defines the So Cal lifestyle that people all around the world seem to be fascinated with. California Poppy, like Menace to Sobriety and For them Asses, is the kind of record you can put on at your backyard BBQ and play from top to bottom. A culmination of reggae rhythms, hip-hop beats and punk rock attitude defines the California lifestyle. The songs tend to find the brighter side of things giving an uplifting perspective on life. The days are full of drinking, drugs, beautiful girls, the beach, surf and fun in the sun. But at the same time you feel the reality of life and personal struggle. Living in California is not always as glamorous as television shows lie the ?O.C. and ? Beverly Hills 90210? suggest.
