In the world of Tight Pants Syndrome--a constantly evolving lineup of Saint Louis' finest popsters led by songwriter/guitarist Tom Stephens--everybody sings. The latest group--featuring Maxtone Four's Brian McClelland, STL drummer-at-large Scott Hermes (Phonocaptors/Fantasy Four), keyboardist Tim McAvin (Lydia's Trumpet/the Joobs), and new addition Erin Hogan (Failside)--carries on in the tradition of the original 2005 lineup, keeping big harmonies and lightning-hot pop hooks in the forefront of their shimmering '60s pop. Consisting of all of their limited-edition (and always coveted) singles on one disc--plus five new tracks including live faves 'John's Niece is Very Pretty,' 'Dumb Love,' and 'Suburban Girl'--the group's long-anticipated full-length debut, Singles, serves as a primer for the uninitiated and soon-to-be-converted pop fan.
