Mike Watt and the Missingmen
I am the son of sailor. I started playing w/d. boon as a boy and we later had a band called the minutemen. since then the bass has taken me to some very interesting places and I'm trying to learn all I can.
Cheap Tissue
Directly east of the not-so-bright lights of Downtown Los Angeles, three young men met under a janky fire escape next to a dumpster and put their shriveled, pocketed dollar bills and loose change together to pay for the necessities (mostly booze) of starting a new band.

Furthering their minimal efforts in the dull, cultural wasteland known as Echo Park in June 2015: Andrew Taylor and Jesse Youngblood began to write songs with a high level of energy they felt most people would not like very much at all. Shortly after, they found John Tyree lurking around the same local dives and one-eyed drummer Matthew Spizer. The four got together infrequently over the next six months in rehearsal spaces that did not belong to them and put the not-so-polished touches on the turd that is CHEAP TISSUE.

Though most would describe CT as a garage-punk/rock ‘n’ roll outfit, they prefer being referred to as a very small, extremely sub-par orchestra with no conductor and the tendency to play songs at whatever tempo they feel like.

Brandishing snarling, fuzzy guitars and three “singers” up front, Cheap Tissue is coming to sloppily satisfy the needs of your girlfriend, your sister, your mother, and your misses.

Full Length LP out in March via Lolipop! Records.
