11.20.07: Guest JOHNNY WITMER (THE STITCHES)
Tonight on WE"RE GONNA BE TIMELESS
Our guest Dj will be JOHNNY WITMER guitarist/songwriter for the STITCHES. We will be focusing on 2 hours worth of "UK POWER POP from 1977-1982"
Formed in the early '90's, the Stitches have remained one of Los Angeles' longest running punk bands that have kept going without breaking up and reforming. With nods to late '70's British punk but still taking cues from the Chuck Berry/Johnny Thunders school of NYC rock they blend their unique take on punk rock. Touring non-stop and releasing a slew of records on such labels as GSL, Suburbia, and TKO.
Tonight we will be turning you on to some of the best tunes from the late 70's/early 80s school of UK power pop!
