Finally arriving with their debut self-titled full length, The Sticks have blown the roof off 2007’s 10” record and a number of previous singles. Now a trio, the band’s sound is more curious than ever. Recorded in an old community hall in Brighton with rudimentary equipment, these songs bounce off the walls with inventive urgency. Thumping deconstructions of 60s riffage give way to more moody bass driven post-punk clatter. These arrangements are certainly crude in nature reflecting the group’s limited abilities as musicians, but it is this unpolished approach that draws the listener into the whole potentiality of the music making process.

The double 7″ vinyl comes in a lush two colour printed gatefold sleeve. The digipack CD contains no less than 10 extra tracks!
