I had the pleasure of profiling Portland’s garage-pop-punk sweethearts Pataha Hiss for this week’s paper (read it here), but I wasn’t quite able to convey just how deep this trio’s music geekery runs. My hourlong conversation with Chelsea McIntire and Lizzie Flick revealed a band still totally stoked on its many musical influences and inspirations, so I thought a playlist of Pataha Hiss’ favorite songs would complete the portrait I painted in the paper.

Pataha Hiss

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.”


SEE IT: Pataha Hiss plays the Know on Saturday, August 11 with Hey Lover! and Piss Test. 9pm. Cover. 21+.
