The Pointed Sticks are a Canadian punk rock band from the north of Vancouver and they were active from 1978 to 1981, reunited in 2006 to perform a few gigs and have remained together since then. They were the first Canadian band signed to Stiff Records, although the label was going through financial problems and never released an album by the band. The band are known for their fast melodic pop music and liberal use of harmony singing by all five members, also for unusual graphic images that acted as counterpoint to the music. So this is their 3rd on Quintessence Records and the flip is the better one. Anyway, I enjoy them.
