Formed in 1977 Pointed Sticks were a cornerstone of the Vancouver punk scene who broke ground with a string of 7" recordings punctated with high energy live performances that won the band instant fans. A cherry spot leading of the "Vancouver Complication" compliation record also helped garner attention. It wasn't long before Stiff Records caught wind of what was going on and inked the band to a record deal. But that release wasn't meant to be. Cancelled due to "budgetary issues" the band was dropped and left to pick up the pieces. And that they did in spades, pairing up with producer Bob Rock to create "Perfect Youth." Considered one of the era's finest, the LP set a high bar and infuenced many other bands.

After calling it quits in the early '80s the band reformed and began paying shows and recording again. Their output stands at three full-lengths and a compliation of Singles and B-Sides entitled "Waiting For The Real Thing." The band's latest studio LP Beautiful Future is now availible worldwide digitally and Porterhouse has the 12" vinyl package in our web-store for order now.

Porterhouse will be releasing other legacy recordings from Pointed Sticks as well as new recordings. In fact, there is currently a radio single in the works for the song "Infected" from Beautiful Future.
