Don’t let Cheap Tissue’s relentless sense of self-deprecation fool you. The Echo Park garage-punk quartet’s Facebook bio refers to Cheap Tissue’s triumvirate of vocalists by sarcastically putting quotation marks around the word “singers” and goes on to describe the group “as a very small, extremely subpar orchestra with no conductor and the tendency to play songs at whatever tempo they feel like.” Most of the time, guitarists Andrew Taylor and Jesse Youngblood, bassist John Tyree and drummer Matt Spizer feel like playing at fast, reckless tempos on such short punk bursts as “Bag & Number.” They allude to The New York Dolls’ classic “Personality Crisis” when they rant their way through the bratty original song “Dirt”: “You’re a prima ballerina/You ain’t no New York Doll … Go back to your parents!” Look for Cheap Tissue’s debut album on Lolipop Records in March.
