THE ATOMIC DROPS
The Atomic Drops is an American rock band with some working class punk attitude and classic metal stylings. They deserve mention on Island of Sound because their former bassist Meige Tsai is a Taiwanese musician who came straight from the Kaohsiung indie scene where she was in a punky girl band called Cleavage 911 to the streets of Pittsburgh as student. She joined The Atomic Drops playing numerous shows around the city with them and even appeared on the band's first demo album. However, Meige returned to Taiwan in 2007 and has been reunited with her hometown scene and bands like Fire Ex., Kook and Maho who currently make up the S4RS collective. Having replaced Meige, The Atomic Drops continue to play their good time rock 'n' roll tunes around Pittsburgh.
