Mo Pop was the second single from Dot Allison's debut solo album, Afterglow. It is my favourite track on a very mellow album which ditches for the main part the dub and dance beats of her previous band One Dove in favour of a more 60s influenced sound.
She has produced a further 2 solo albums. We Are Science which is a much darker affair and very influenced by the electroclash sound which was prevalent at the time. Her last album i can't tell you very much about as I lost interest after downloading the Beneath The Ivy ep and finding it to be quite disappointing.
Of the 3 albums I think that the debut is still the best and well worth the 4 to 5 quid it is being offered for on Amazon used and new.
