Rare now, going for $25. "4 1/2 stars. Vancouver's Zulu Records continues to build on the foundation archive of local punk-pop it established with the 1991 two-disc compilation Last Call: Vancouver Independent Music 1977-1988. Three key late-'70s scenemakers now get full-anthology treatment to flattering effect, including previously unreleased, live, and demo recordings. Part of the Noise compiles 26 energizing nuggets (1978-1981) that confirm Pointed Sticks as one of the most potent power-pop bands to ever emerge from Canada, their sharp guitar/cheesy keyboards/plaintive vocals/blast-of-sax sound sandbagged in its prime by a deal gone sour with legendary British label Stiff Records. Revel in the 3-minute perfection of "The Real Thing," the classic kiss-off title track, and unreleased Stiff sessions." - AMG
