News blasts for you!

Least Best Beast is three punks making music and noise in the basement of a tattoo shop. Their influences include Shellac, Dinosaur Jr., Kinks, The Flaming Lips, Guided By Voices, Les Savy Fav, Built to Spill, The Planet The, Devo, and Van Halen (to name but a few). And while the notes that come blasting out feel familiar, it is still an original and fresh take on post-punk rock music.

All three of them have been playing in bands since a young age. Patrick (bass) and Joe (guitar and vocals) were jamming together for a few months, but were having trouble finding a drummer. Most were lost to spontaneous combustion.

Serendipitously, Stella (drums), had recently set up shop at Pat’s “Speakeasy Tattoo Studio” in Peekskill, NY. When Stella overheard Pat bitching about their search for a drummer, she didn’t miss a beat... It was quickly apparent at the trio’s first session that it was a perfect fit and the beast was born.
