SUSPECT PARTS are gearing up to go on tour in Europe next week, following up their October 6th debut LP release on Taken By Surprise Records (Europe) and Oops Baby Records (USA)! This apocalyptically poppy power group was mixed together by former and current members of The Briefs, Clorox Girls, Maniac, Ripchord, Radio Dead Ones and Red Dons (GO HERE to read oout insightful interview). The suspects are spread across Los Angeles, London, Berlin and Munich.
“If you are looking for a feelgood album to banish the oncoming winter blues then this is your baby. ‘Suspect Parts’ by Suspect Parts is everything, and more, that you’d want it to be and anyone who has a soft spot or love for power pop or punk-pop or whatever you want to label it… I’ll just say that it’s one of the best releases this year: no doubt about it.” – uberrock.co.uk

Apocalypse Pop, waiting for the apocalypse to…drop…
Suspect Parts is the brainchild of two exiled Americans, one Brit and a German who managed to tame their inner demons with buzzsaw punk/powerpop, a cotton candy-meets-razorblade concoction that goes down surprisingly smooth.
Ex and current members of bands like The Briefs, Clorox Girls, Maniac, Ripchord, Radio Dead Ones and Red Dons – they are Suspect, they come from Suspect Parts.
Combining 60’s pop and bubblegum with late 70’s California beach punk and powerpop, Suspect Parts have something brewing that can’t be ignored. The Seeds, the Kinks, the Knack and the Buzzcocks can be heard, as well as a little Nuggets, a little Star Spangles or Rezillos, a little Protex or Undertones, but with a modern touch. Backward-looking but forward-thinking 60s pop with a punk edge.
Now, their self-titled full-length debut album is finally here. Recorded straight to analog tape in the negative 15 degree cold of a January in east Berlin. Ten songs, 24 minutes, a relentlessly catchy uppercut to the senses.
Apocalypse Pop. When oil runs out a major line is going to be drawn. Which side are you on? Which tribe are you willing to die for? … Pop’s chosen warriors will rule the apocalypse …. Drop, waiting for the apocalypse to…pop…
