Pointed Sticks - Waiting For The Real Thing: Exciting New Compilation CD Released On Sudden Death Records

From Sudden Death Records, a new CD compilation comprising the greatest work of the classic pop/punk band Pointed Sticks. Available now on CD and limited-edition colored 12” vinyl.

The Pointed Sticks were formed in early 1978 and quickly became a big part of the underground punk/new wave scene in Vancouver, Canada, gigging with bands like D.O.A., the Subhumans and the Dishrags. They had a fun, quirky style that they combined with pure pop genius.

Their first two singles became instant pop sensations. Following the momentum of these instantaneous classics, the band started touring up and down the west coast of North America. The crowds grew and so did the press coverage. The Pointed Sticks later recorded their only full length album “Perfect Youth” with legendary producer Bob Rock, that is available from Sudden Death Records.

Throughout the band’s 1978-1981 career, the band produced 3 singles and a multitude of demos, TV and radio recordings. The best of these have been melded together by Dale Wiese and Chris Cutress (producer of the fabulous Vancouver Complication album, also on Sudden Death Records) into “Waiting For The Real Thing”.

On this CD you get to hear one of the very best bands of that great musical era at their most inspirational stage.
