Wakefield's PISKIE SITS’ racket is fuelled by a love of US slacker noisenik pioneers of the 80’s/90’s Pavement, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur JR, Sebadoh, Breeders), their Scottish equivalents (JAMC, Teenage Fanclub, Vaselines) and classic English pop artists such as D. Bowie and Blur. Add swaggering northern bravado and a healthy dose of good-time absurdity and you may come close to understanding Piskie Sits’ outlook.
The band as we know it has been in existence since Xmas 2004. In the space of 6 months, the group frantically spewed out 3 demonstration EPs – like the ascent of man, each one showed a vast step up in sophistication. The final EP, named ‘50’s Greaser Uniform’ caught our attention at Wrath. Things are all set to kick off in the next few months with Piskie Sits’ debut release on Wrath as part of the ‘Super Sevens’ singles club series. With a personal invite to support rising pop stars The Research (also from Wakefield) on their entire tour and plans for an album release on Wrath later this year, the latter part of 2005 is certainly looking to be a strangely hectic time for Piskie Sits as flagbearers of the burgeoning Wakefield scene. Prepare yourselves for the return of the slack!
