KISN is now listener-supported and they need our help to keep the airwaves of Portland, Oregon filled with good times and great oldies. We'll have a bunch of announcements in the upcoming weeks so please stay tuned and spread the word – Nuggets Night is BACK!
“The A-side of the debut single from the Suicide Notes is a punky pop gem that's gonna be rolling around my head until summertime at least. "Hey Baby" makes full use of the group's three singers—Jessi Lixx, Double A, and Miss Joseph—with a call-and-response chorus and an undeniably catchy melody that's built around an ingenious pop structure. And in welcome contrast to the sunny, girl-group vibe they initially seem to emit, the Suicide Notes offer real muscle in the guitars, bass, and drums of their backline, plus a few unexpected flourishes like the brass fanfare in B-side "Last Chance." The single celebrates its release on Hovercraft Records tonight, marking the recorded debut of what is assuredly going to be one of Portland's most loved bands. Mark my words—the party starts now.”
