Biography

Atlanta, United States

LMNOP is Stephen Fievet, an Atlanta native whose deceptively sweet vocal style and fondness for near-bubblegum melodies partially hides about the most twisted, perverse sense of humor in rock & roll history. Along with his musical activities, Fievet publishes the deliberately offensive comic Babysue, designs handbill-sized posters (his “missing dog head” poster became a sensation in Internet circles in the mid-’90s , and although this bizarre deadpan joke about a poodle named Ling-Ling was eventually traced back to Fievet, it still travels the World Wide Web among people who believe it’s real), and writes nakedly autobiographical, painfully intimate poetry and prose that may or may not be one giant deadpan joke. It’s impossible to tell, and Fievet likes it that way.

LMNOP first hit the pop underground with three self-released cassettes, 1982’s LMNOP, 1984’s LMNOP LMNOP, and 1985’s LMNO3. Fievet’s most accessible work, these tapes are ultra-catchy pop with clever lyrics, hooks aplenty, and Fievet’s most deceptively innocent vocals. Fievet re-recorded some tracks from these three tapes for his first two vinyl albums, 1986’s Elemen Opee Elpee and 1987’s Pony, which sound like a cross between R. Stevie Moore and the Three O’Clock.

LMNOP’s darker and more “difficult” period started with 1989’s Numbles; on this album, the arrangements are a bit more stripped down and Fievet starts examining more unsettling emotions in his often depressed-sounding lyrics.
