“Of many words which can be applied to our encounters with record label/radio show/magazine/creative collaboration Perfect Pop Co-Op, surprising and predictable stand tall. The first is a perpetual experience as year by year projects and releases through them have ignited the imagination and courted the passions like few others with varying but constant success. It may vary from encounter to encounter and will for each listener but the people behind it all seem to tap into the instinctive wants we certainly have here.”

Ringmaster Review

Somewhere in the juxtaposed twilight of anxiety, bravado and gallows humour you’ll find that GAND? resides. Stalking serenities remaining refuge of dream, in the faction structured paranoia of this the bizarre roar of these new 20s.

Gand? is the latest character to ooze a project for the Perfect Pop Co-Op, following in the footsteps of Reverse Family, The Dodo, The Bleeed and The Tuesday Club. Gand? Is the maudlin brainchild behind the latest fluid PPCO concept, that remains lost in a world of old school pop adoration. 

Working under the name FACTION STRUCTURE and likened to the extravagant avant garde experimentations of Mallard. The musical ‘styling’ was cultivated in the subsequent decades that are now lost in time and space and generally only hold the glister for those of that time… if they still can, or care to remember.

FACTION STRUCTURE exist writhing in aspic with no pretension of popularity or comprehension of fad or the vibe in a world long lost to algorithms and Woocommerce. Belligerently residing in the last bastion of a semi comatose dreamland they do it just for shits and giggles… 

FACTION STRUCTURE is a 5 album concept that encompasses the flailing end of the 10s and turbulent start to the 20s. The songs traverse our tangled stories of survival, berevment, incomprehension, frustration, fear, greed, desire and maybe hope?



Anxieties Faction Structure springs its disco seeded enterprise into a post punk, cinematic soundtrack honed landscape of doubt and unease. Squirts of brass like electronics caught the imagination with Essential Logic like invention yet as in all tracks any reference we give merely gives a hint to the bodies of sound shaping each song. With its great esurient nagging and moments of graceful warmth not forgetting the webs of irregular temptation, side one is brought to one compelling close.”
