"Popular Mechanics" is the debut album by Piano Magic, originally released in 1997 on i/Che records.

It was recorded at home in North London on 4 and 8 track c46 cassette machines by founding members Glen Johnson and Dominic Chennell with contributions from passing friends. At the time, Johnson and Chennell claimed the album to be influenced by the early music of Kraftwerk and Brothers Quay animation films.

It includes the a-sides from Piano Magic's first two single releases, Wrong French and Wintersport featuring the third founding member Dick Rance.
