Album Notes
PINS AND NEEDLES is from Los Angeles, CA. Their unique blend of 80s punk, post-punk and deathrock has quickly earned them a reputation in the LA scene. Playing many great venues in LA and NY with bands like the Deep Eynde and Nina Hagen.

This debut album was produced by the legendary Barry Galvin (Christian Death/Mephisto Walz) and provides a wide sample of PINS AND NEEDLES artistic diversity. This is not the typical debut, PINS AND NEEDLES have crafted a slew of original songs each having their own character but still confined in that unique sound that is PINS AND NEEDLES.

"PINS AND NEEDLES will impress whether you like it or not. With a direct intermingling of Goth grace and punk rigour, P&N carve out lean songs with a real zest to them, a brusque sparkle and a depth to the messages. Lively!"

"PINS AND NEEDLES should be more than proud of themselves. Their debut is one of the finest in months, if not years. It's almost impossible to pigeonhole their sound, and this is definitely one of the biggest compliments imaginable. A great effort, touched by the hands of the god of flanger guitars, Mister Bari-Bari, of Mephisto Walz-fame!"


to write a review

media independent

a blissfully dark post-new wave sound
If you appreciate bands like Blue Peter, Breeding Ground or Bauhaus, this CD will be a welcome add to your collection. I grew up on Toronto radio in the 80's and this CD would have fit in any mix of punk, new wave, goth, etc. they played back then. A welcome update to familiar sounds. . .


Sometimes the deathrock scene launches some great masterpieces to be remembered many years or even decades. I find Pins and Needles debut one of these albums; fresh, direct, elegant, original.

Congratulations!, can´t wait for more, guys!! =)

dark, ominus and powerful!
my faith in music has been restored. these are excellent songs mixed with cool production. the chiming guitars of early cure, the wonderful peter hook-ish driving's all here! don't deny yourself this experience.


This is an absolutely great album for anyone who still craves the real 80's deathrock sound, which is getting harder and harder to find. Some of the songs sound a lot like early Christian Death, including the vocals, especially the song "Isabella". I could listen to this over and over.

Strong music played with taste
Pins and Needle plays a great death rock/gothic tasting of good old times but with all the modern twchnique and skills. Surprising sound, powerful bass and guitars, obsessive voice which will please your dark ear. Listen and howl!


This is one of the best albums of death rock
The songs in this album are some of the best i've ever heard. Specimen has the right beat and rhythm and infectious lyrics. Anybody who buys this album will always enjoy it
