Razors In The Night (Baizley, Kelly, Adams, Sarba) To Play A Special Set of Classic Punk Songs at Roadburn 2017
Posted on Thursday, March 16th, 2017
As John Dyer Baizley’s curation has unfolded it’s given us an insight into the twists and turns of his own musical make up, and waved a defiant flag for those bands that refuse to conform or play by the rules.
The final band to be announced for Baizley’s curation tick both those boxes with a firm, bold cross. We’ll leave it to him to explain what Razors In The Night is all about…
“For a few years now, a few of my friends and I have been talking about creating a special set for Roadburn; a covers set that pays homage to the seminal music we listened to and played, long before we started playing heavy music, or metal. Music which, however buried it is within the current sounds of our bands, is in fact the life’s blood and beating heart of what we do.
“Music that was an critical guidepost regarding how we approach our music, our art, and the world at large. Music that taught us to question everything, settle for nothing, and encouraged us to follow each of our own individual ambitions and directions, regardless of how contradictory they may have seemed to those around us.
“Without Punk, there would be no Baroness, no Neurosis; and I know so many other bands out there that come form the same place. Though it’s style was, at times simplistic and blunt, punk’s ideology and musical execution was at heart sophisticated, straightforward, no-bullshit; and it spoke to that purely instinctual part of us, which often needed a powerful and effective tool to help us express ourselves in a world we often felt at-odds with.
“Scott Kelly (Neurosis / Corrections House), Pete Adams (Baroness / Valkyrie), and Marek Sarba (Insuiciety / Baroness & Neurosis Road-monster), and I are thrilled to be playing a set of our favorite classic punk songs on the Het Patronaat stage on April 22.
“For those of you familiar with classic 80’s punk, you will almost certainly know these songs, please come out and sing along with us – its always been about community. And for those of you unfamiliar with that era of punk, please come check out a cross-section of those songs and bands that defined our early years of musical discovery. You don’t need to tune down to be heavy.”
Razors in the Night will perform at Het Patronaat on Saturday, April 22 as part of John Dyer Baizley’s curation at Roadburn.

Lovingly pinched from About.com: Heavy Metal: Few words frighten metal fans more than “supergroup” and “experimental.” Supergroups fall flat on their faces quite often, and in general we resist change. Which brings us to Corrections House, a band that combines both terms as an experimental supergroup. Consisting of Mike IX […]
