Canada's Power Pop Godfathers Pointed Sticks Join Porterhouse!

Porterhouse Records is thrilled to announce the addition of Pointed Sticks to its roster. The band arrived with the west-coast's first wave of punk and power pop acts and were at the top of every critic's list. Their debut 'Perfect Youth' was an instant classic. With production from Bob Rock and artwork from Jimmy Cummings the package is considered a landmark in power-pop and punk circles. It was originally released on Vancouver's legendary Quintessence Records who ran into financial difficulty immediately after the record's November 1980 release. The band broke up shortly afterwards.

Flash forward to 2006 and Pointed Sticks reforming, bringing fans a string of full length releases capped by their latest, 'Beautiful Future' which is available on 12" vinyl in our webstore. The LP features the single "Infected" which will be released shortly.

Porterhouse has absorbed the band's entire recorded catalog including the full-length LPs 'Three Lefts Make A Right' and the self-titled 'Pointed Sticks.' We will be releasing music both new and old from the band in the future!

Be sure to stream the entire Pointed Sticks catalog here at the band's Artist Destination and catch them live as well. We've posted upcoming shows at out tour page. A warm Porterhouse welcome to Pointed Sticks!
