in 2002, oh-ok released a compilation of all their materials on collector's choice music. the remastered cd includes a couple of eps and some live stuff, some were produced by bruce baxter and mitch easter(let's active) and others. but most of the original recordings were released on georgia's db records, which was based in atlanta, active from 1979 to 1997. about two years ago "the complete reissue" came about on vinyl on an 18 track limited edition lp of 500 copies made. that being said both reissues are still available and can be bought thru several online music sites. the band comprised of linda hopper on vocals, cyndy stipe on back vocals, linda stipe on bass, david mccnair on drums and lastly, matthew sweet on guitars.

alaska - king of the class 7" 1999

out on marsh-marigold, a german independent label in hamburg, whom its list of exceptional artists consist of the ff: the legendary bang, poprace, red letter day, seashells, the acid house kings and many many more! 'king of the class'.. the band's debut single reminds me so much of the swedish indiepop scene. in fact, if i didn't know better, i thought they were the ahk. alaska also based in hamburg are torben schmieder, christoph martens and christine mauch, sweet boyish-like vocals with playful mod organs mixed sixties harmonies, it's a great recipe for indiepoppers!
