SUSPECT PARTS are an Apocalypse Pop super group with ex and current members of The Briefs, Clorox Girls. More Kicks, Radio Dead Ones, Maniac and Red Dons. Here on their brand new single "You Know I Can't Say No" they combine late 70's California beach punk and power pop with 60's garage and bubblegum. It's a cotton candy-meets-razorblade concoction that goes down surprisingly smooth.
Apocalypse Pop, waiting for the apocalypse to drop
Suspect Parts is the brainchild of two Americans, one Brit and a German who managed to tame their inner demons with buzzsaw punk/powerpop, a cotton candy-meets-razorblade concoction that goes down surprisingly smooth. Ex and current members of bands like The Briefs, Clorox Girls, Maniac, More Kicks, Radio Dead Ones and Red Dons – they are Suspect, they come from Suspect Parts.
Combining 60's pop and bubblegum with late 70's California beach punk and powerpop, Suspect Parts have something brewing that can't be ignored. The Seeds, The Kinks, The Knack and the Buzzcocks can be heard, as well as a little Nuggets, a little Rezillos, a little Protex or Undertones, but with a modern touch. Backward-looking but forward-thinking 60s pop with a punk edge. Suspect Parts have released four 7" singles worldwide on indie labels and their debut LP was released in 2017 on Atlanta's Oops Baby Records and Germany's Taken By Surprise Records.
Now their brand new single is finally here. Recorded live to analog tape in Kaulsdorf, east Berlin, engineered by Smail Shock (of legendary Berlin punk Band The Shocks). "You Know I Can't Say No," is a relentlessly catchy uppercut to the senses. It's a heartbreak anthem of resilience, regret and romance - and a summer hit for years to come.
Apocalypse Pop. When oil runs out a major line is going to be drawn. Which side are you on? Which tribe are you willing to die for? ... Pop's chosen warriors will rule the apocalypse .... Drop, waiting for the apocalypse to...pop... Suspect Parts new single will be released in the US on Portland's Dirt Cult Records and in Germany on Wanda Records July 19th 2019.
