It’s the year 2002…Surfmusic is not exactly the fashion of the day. Some nostalgic guys in Hawaiian shirts still play it, but most people think it’s this weirdo thing that was invented by the Beach Boys or Quentin Tarantino. Besides that, they couldn’t care less…It’s the new millennium, times are rough and they have to listen to this ultra-cool loungey electro groove track immediately….
Some young guys think that’s not OK at all. Faraway from the sun, the ocean and the beach, in Wiesbaden/ Germany, they decide to add their own chapter to the book that was written by Dick Dale and his fellows. By putting twangy guitars, punk power and melodies as big in the ocean in the shaker, they create a musical cocktail that makes you move your feet in double speed and dance like a madman. Six months later their first album is in the can and THE RAZORBLADES start touring.
Fast forward to 2011… THE RAZORBLADES are one of Europe’s leading surf bands, played nearly 300 shows in ten countries, released three albums and one EP, added tracks to numerous compilations and have absolutely no plans to retire. Instead they release their forth full length album “Gimme Some Noise”, which shows the band running like a well-oiled diesel engine.
Rob Razorblade (guitar), Ray Razorblade (bass) and Regi Razorblade (drums) travelled a lot in the last few years. They slept on countless living room floors, rocked together with bands like The Peacocks, Loaded, Los Straitjackets and the Turbo Acs and forgot the blinders of the surf genre in a backstage trashcan somewhere on the road…
But can you combine Surf with Punk, New Wave, Ska, Reggae, Modsound and Rockabilly?
THE RAZORBLADES say Yes! The spirit of Dick Dale still lingers over “Gimme Some Noise”, but the three piece from Germany spices the Sixties Sound with neck breaking speed, wild feedback noise and a colorful range of influences. You can hear the American power pop of the Cute Lepers as well as Agent Orange’s West Coast Punk, find traces of Ska from The Specials, Punky Reggae from the Ruts, the Mod Sound of the Jam and if you listen closely, there’s also some feedback extravaganza in the spirit of Sonic Youth.
All right, but how do these guys sound on stage?
Well, wild, sweaty, energetic and faster than the police allows…like Dick Dale on speed, the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack in turbo mode, like a car chase on Highway 101 with loud punk rock on the radio, 120 mph and no seat belt attached.
And what about the audience?
Well, they scream, dance, jump off stage and can’t get that big fat grin off their face, no matter if they’re punkrockers, psychos, skinheads, rockabillies, surf freaks or average people on the lookout for some fun. Wherever THE RAZORBLADES go, they leave young, sweaty, happy people behind, worn out from dancing, who look forward to the next time and didn’t even notice that the singer was missing Well, who needs a pompous guy like that on the mike anyway, Beethoven did well without one and if was Ok for Ludwig Van, it’s fine for THE RAZORBLADES ….
