Here, then, are a few of the tunes that make Pataha Hiss tick, accompanied by brief explanations from the band members. Let’s rock.
The Ettes, “Beggars”
Gram Parsons, “Brass Buttons”
Dustin Schwindt: "Both songs share an intimate feeling being warm and cold lyrically and musically. They both convey desperation in a sense, but different ends of the spectrum."
The Donnas, “Skintight”
Chelsea McIntire: "High School. High School. High School!"
The Only Ones, “Another Girl, Another Planet”
Lizzie Flick: “A great song from 1978 which is rivaled only by "Teenage Kicks." A masterful blend of Pop Sugar & Punk Rock. Mmm!”
Exploding Hearts, “Sleeping Aides & Razorblades”
Chelsea: Guitar Romantic is a stellar album all around but "Sleeping Aides & Razorblades" has always resonated with me. I'm a sucker for a great break up song.
Dead Boys, “All This and More”
Lizzie: “The sexiest song ever written. Period.”
