POINTED STICKS (Buy CDs by this artist)
Perfect Youth (Can. Quintessence) 1980

Fellow Vancouverite Bob Rock of the Payolas produced this modestly appealing pop punk. But one of Pointed Sticks' earlier 45s ("What Do You Want Me to Do?" b/w "Somebody's Mom") boded far better. The faint stirrings of imaginative pop on Side Two don't go far enough, either, and Nick Jones' mischievous Everly Brothers-ish voice can't carry it alone.

[Jim Green]
