The Philly skronk-punk outfit known as The Stickmen had a brief existence, but their hyperactive, disjointed music still gives our stereo an electric jolt. The band’s songs were shaved down to their bare essentials–all three tracks below clock in at the sub-two-minute mark–and packed with popping basslines and squeaked exclamations from lead singer Peter L. Baker, who passed away in 1994.
