“The Ponce de Leon of Power Pop” – CriticalMob
October 5, 2010
“Get Up,” Green Blimp‘s opening track, makes a case for Tulsa rocker Dwight Twilley as the Ponce de Leon of power pop, bathing in a sonic fountain of youth. At 59, Twilley sounds almost identical to the scrappy twentysomething who made waves in the mid ’70s with Sincerely and Twilley Don’t Mind. Even without his 1970s co-pilot, the late Phil Seymour, Twilley effortlessly recaptures the energy, enthusiasm, and impossibly infectious tunefulness of those power-pop classics.
