Pointed Sticks – American Song 7″

I do love Pointed Sticks immensely but was really disappointed when I heard the Perfect Youth LP. It had loads of great songs but the production/mastering(?) was/is incredibly weak. Here’s a one sided DJ promo of one of the greater songs from it but with a lot better production/mastering job. If only the LP sounded this great.

You’ve been searching all day long for the perfect punk rock song and all of a sudden you find it here: Rockwrock. Flip flip. Hiroshima Mon Amour. It might not be punk? Pays more than its fare share to Roxy Music maybe. I love it. All hail violins in punk rock.

PS
This is the not so rare Egyptian tape sleeve variation.

You’ve been searching all day long for the perfect synthpunk song and all of a sudden you find it here: Poolside. Flip flip. Timbuctune. Oh well. You can’t always find the perfect two sider.

PS
Scum stat: 100 copies. They also had an awesome track on the first Rodney on the Rock compilation. I got in contact with the female vocalist Perez and asked her to search for unreleased recordings. She asked her other band mates but they haven’t responded yet. I really hope there’s more tracks buried in the vein of Poolside and Furry Friends.
