Razorcake Podcast #691 with Johnny and Elwood

This feels like quite a special episode for me this time as we are doing tracks from Germany and Austria and I was born Germany. Sadly I was unable to find any bands from the town in which I was born but still it’s nice to look into the music of a place you have a connection to. Austria, on the other hand, I have only passed through on an overnight train from Budapest to Munich (I still feel sorry for the lady who got on at Vienna to find herself sharing a cabin with five foul smelling boys).

I generally try to pick bands from as differing genres as possible (whilst sticking within our punk bubble) but this time it seems that bands just seem to be a bit on the heavier and dirtier sides of our wonderful subculture so I’m afraid there’s not too many poppy moments to bop a long to. Maybe that’s a reflection on the countries I’ve picked from or maybe it’s a reflection of my mood as Coronavirus causes such chaos. Either way I hope you enjoy the songs, pick up some records and if you’re in quarantine you have a good old dance.
