Last time we checked, Handstand Command consisted of:
Putting the punk back in punctuality.
Working 'round the clock to deliver high-quality, lo-fidelity, mid-tempo indie pop.
Porn rock, dance grooves, songs of velvety punk nostalgia and SE Hinton defiance.
Skinned knees and ice cream cones, solo 4-track and/or full band project of Paul Operator.
ASIAN BABE ALERT|
Tom Anchorman + Leslie = garage rock that don't stop.
THE TARDY &/or JEF CZEKAJ|
Steph Operator + Jef Anchorman= The Tardy. Jef performs solo, too. Don't worry, we're just as confused as you.
PLUNGE INTO DEATH|
Area D and Mark E. Moon's ultra-goth fake-art dance band. Sometimes guest-starring DJ Distortia or Big Digits.
Jack Racoon and Fun Bunny battle the Evil Sheriff of Kiddztown.
