PART TIME PUNKS celebrates its 13-Year Anniversary with THE TELESCOPES + LSD & THE SEARCH FOR GOD + NO SUN + SNOWBALL II
Creation Records' shoegaze legends THE TELESCOPES take the stage for Part Time Punks...with a full band...and a full barrage of songs ranging from «The Perfect Needle» to those perfect records recorded for Creation circa 1991-94, to their dark and swirling new LP, «Stone Tape». As a personal note here, I gotta add, The Telescopes were always one of my favorite of the first wave of shoegaze in the 90s, so welcoming them back to Part Time Punks is a true honor.
Listen to THE TELESCOPES:
LSD & THE SEARCH FOR GOD return to PTP supporting their pals The Telescopes, armed with with an arsenal of new tracks from the band's new EP and forthcoming & long-awaited debut LP. For fans of feedback drenched fuzzy noise bliss ala' Spacemen 3, MBV and, of course, The Telescopes.
Listen to LSD & THE SEARCH FOR GOD:
Hailing from Salt Lake City, NO SUN were included in PTP's Top 40-something of 2017 radio special on KXLU 88.9FM this past year, and is looking forward to finally welcoming them to the Echoplex stage. For fans of Nothing, Swervedrivier, Failure and Hum!
Listen to NO SUN:
PTP is looking forward to finally hosting LA's own SNOWBALL II. Since spotting their t-shirt on a friend of the band's at the New Beverly last year (a Spacemen 3 pastiche), PTP has been looking for just the right show to have them open...and this is it! Channeling parts of Jason Pierce's ego and Sonic Boom's id + the pop sensibilities of Teenage Fanclub's Bandwagonesque. Come enjoy an alcoholiday in honor of PTP's lucky 13th anniversary…
