After many years because the frontman for NJ pop-emo outfit Tocar, Jarrett Randazzo broke free from his former act in 2000 to create Copperpot. During their debut, Nothing at all Lasts Forever, Copperpot was essentially still only a one-man display of Randazzo’s, who published all the materials and played a lot of the tools himself. His personal debt to both contemporary acoustic guitar pop — from Fountains of Wayne and Foo Fighters to Elliot Smith — in addition to emo — like Jimmy Eat Globe — and Randazzo’s capability to create immediately available, catchy tunes helped grab the eye of a lot of the pop underground. By Might of 2001, Randazzo still experienced yet to discover a support band, and continuing to try out solo acoustic displays while auditioning fresh members. None of these fit in until he contacted Antonio Valenti (bass, support vocals) and Scott Ingwersen (drums and percussion), both previously of Dharma Kids. The sessions became popular, and 4th member Michael Reid (lead and tempo guitar, support vocals) arrived to the fold after becoming launched by Ingwersen’s hairdresser. As their profile improved, Copperpot continued to try out displays and record fresh materials (like the early-2002 solitary “Annie”) while shifting beyond a number of the straightforward power pop on the debut.
