Over the past year or so Poppy Seed has evolved in leaps and bounds. The guest musicians have been shed in favour of a cohesive 6 piece unit. Never shying from attention the group appeared on numerous TV and radio shows and played gigs with the likes of Juliana Hatfield, Miles Hunt of the Wonderstuff, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Roy Harper, Nash the Slash & King Cobb Steelie. Currently, the group is making more recordings toward a sophomore release as well as a promotional video to support their debut album.
Poppy Seed stepped into the light in 1998 with their critically acclaimed debut release Days Dream of You. This record successfully melded their brand of trippy pop grooves with elements of jazz, psychedelia, Indian Classical and the universe itself transporting the listener to new heights of orgiastic musical delight.
Poppy Seed & the Love Explosion Orchestra the brainchild of singer/songwriter Steven Bromstein, have been kicking around the T.O. scene since the early 90ís. With their Sedated Sunday residency at the Legendary El Mocambo club, the Love Explosion Orchestra were able to develop their brand of dynamic psychedelic pop into a force and style of music all their own.
