Cheap Tissue is a Garage/Punk band from Los Angeles. Brandishing snarling, fuzzy guitars and three “singers” up front, Cheap Tissue’s musicianship consists of quintessential garage melodies, classic punk progressions, and fuzzy, dueling guitar work beneath their snarling vocals often sung simultaneously during their fast paced, non-stop live set. Cheap Tissue draws from sounds reminiscent of the late 70s punk scene, an inspiration that guides their gritty—yet sophisticated—sound and audience. Cheap Tissue’s coarse, hell bent racket can be loosely traced back to an unhinged fervor of rock ’n’ roll’s nostalgic roots bringing raucous late night sounds to audiences across Los Angeles.
Cheap Tissue has played alongside infuential acts such as The Vibrators, The Zeros and played a recent west coast stint with Slaughter and the Dogs. The band consists of Andrew Taylor (Guitar/Vox), Jesse Youngblood (Guitar/Vox), John Tyree (Bass/Vox) and its one-eyed drummer Matthew Spizer.
The band recently signed a recording contract with Lolipop! Records. Cheap Tissue’s debut LP will be released March 2nd during a four-month PR and show campaign that is scheduled to begin November 13th.
Death Hymn Number 9
Formed out of the murky Louisiana Swamp, these four denizens of somnambulance and limited brain power were a former backing band to Motown's greats, until abandoned at a routine gas stop in Baton Rouge in August 1965. In an act of brazen post-mortem activity, the band soldiered on, focusing their collective rage and wild abandonment issues into a thrashy, gross, fast, groovy, loud, hurt-feeling-fest of garage and punk rock bravado. After emerging from those garbage laden swamps, the band relocated to Los Angeles in late 2009 to annoy and harass the lazy bourgeois bar going public and teenage backyard house show attendee. Who knows what posthumous ridiculousness will ensue
