The Suicide Notes, Si Si Si, Guantanamo Baywatch

[GARAGE SOUL] The Suicide Notes will soon be among Portland's favorite bands. That's in part because the sextet hasn't even played a show and already has its look wrapped up—the trifecta of female frontwomen remind of a white, tattooed version of the Shirelles—but also because of the band's stellar Portland punk credentials (members of the Epoxies, Pure Country Gold and Mean Jeans? Yes, please!). The band's early recordings aspire to sound like Phil Spector-produced Crystals recordings meeting late-’90s Lookout! records fare, a feat the band is already quite close to pulling off. Early press photos emphasize the color-coordinated frontwomen, and they are surely the main attraction, but expect plenty of explosive riffage from the back-up musicians, too. We also expect—nay, demand—matching suits.
