Bike Thiefs – Small Claims Court (Official)

Bike Thiefs are a chatty post-punk trio that sound like a cross between Parquet Courts and a late-night conversation with Charles Bukowski.

Bike Thiefs are a chatty post-punk trio that sound like a cross between Parquet Courts and a late-night conversation with Charles Bukowski.

Comprised of bassist Kris Pandierada, drummer Andrew Fasken, and guitarist/vocalist Marko Woloshyn, Toronto’s Bike Thiefs absorb music as quickly as one would expect from a group of millennial audiophiles. Pandeirada cut his teeth producing hip-hop beats in his basement; Woloshyn holed up in his room wringing the ink out of Leonard Cohen sheet music; Fasken immersed himself in the world of 2000s punk rock while booking shows and playing in a handful of hardcore bands.
Over the past few years, Bike Thiefs have refined their cool cocktail of speakeasy vocals, slashing guitars, and primal rhythms into catchy post-punk anthems. They’ve kept busy touring across Canada and the United States, opening for various international acts including Wavves, Antarctigo Vespucci (Jeff Rosenstock & Chris Farren), and The Dirty Nil.

Bike Thiefs signed to Stomp Records in 2020 and are releasing their debut full-length album this fall. It was recorded with Josh Korody (Dirty Nil, Weaves, Dilly Dally) at Candle Recordings in Toronto.

Look chic, look punk, look punk rock! If you want to dress like a real punk this 2018 in an adult way, then I highly recommend taking a look through this awesome compilation of refreshed punk rock street style looks. This year comes with some great vibes and details. We see oversized leather jackets, slouchy blazers, printed shirts, plaid skirts, and dresses, ripped jeans, etc. Personally, I like the way many ladies have translated this trend in a modern way, by adding leather pants, vintage tees, sexy stilettos, statement boots by Dr. Martens, oversized blazers, etc. Punk is officially back but in a more voguish look and max vengeance. Of course, you can go for fishnets, spikes, studs, dyed hair, and patches, but be sure to look like 18 years old girl. But there is an easy way to look punk, yet stylish. I’ve rounded some great looks for your one and only inspiration. Hope you will enjoy this compilation as much as I do.
