Well, THE RAZORBLADES have heard this dialogue a thousand times.
11 years, nearly 500 shows in Europe and the USA plus countless miles on the highway lie behind the Surf punks THE RAZORBLADES, who started in 2002 to kick the Californian Surf sound into the new
millennium. On their new album „Snapshots From The Underground" the three piece from Wiesbaden, Germany cold shoulders the beach and goes into unknown territory: "We don't see too many palm trees, beach bunnies and white beaches, when we're on the road. It's more an endless line of sweaty backstage rooms, beer soaked stages and sleepless nights, before we hit the road again in the van to get to the next gig. You can hear that in our new songs along with all the bands we met and listened to in the last years" says guitarist and songwriter
Out of the board shorts and into the black leatherjacket is the new mantra of the band. Dick Dale's twangy guitar sounds are getting punked up by grooves reminiscent of Rancid, Agent Orange and
the Turbo ACs. Put some noisy feedback on top and you get a dark- er, more dangerous version of the classic Razorblades sound. Sorry, no Hawaiian shirts allowed...
