Nice Tats

I’ve always had a bit of thing for the Danelectro post-WW II-late-1940s-lo-fi guitars with their lipstick-tube pickups and hollow Masonite bodies, sold in those ancient prosperous boom years by Sears and Montgomery Ward. Catalog shopping ushering in the first furtive dreams of garage rock. When paired with pedals and boxes, the Daneletcro sound can shave ice. In the hands of LA’s Prism Tats, the sound created its own reality of dirty crash pop. The Tats kicked off the evening for the Noise for the Needy final live series.

Get Some Death or Fame

Los Angeles-based Prism Tats playing live at the historic final Noise for the Needy concert, ever, at the mighty Tractor Tavern in Ballard, Washington. One for the ages now.
