RIFF RANDELLS (Vancouver, Canada)
Who could believe that It's been 13 years since the band's humble beginnings, selling Chixdiggit! T-shirts in their high school halls to fund the instruments they'd eventually learn to play? How quickly those early gigs in Calgary turned into tours with Lagwagon, Groovie Ghoulies, and Social Distortion. At those early shows, crowds could barely glimpse the tops of the boys heads due to their penchant for deep punk-rock splits, but anyone who did catch their act realized these rockers know how to have a good time. With albums out on labels like SUB POP and FAT WRECK CHORDS the boys are back, and play a tiny bar in Innsbruck"
The Riff Randells are three girls playing teenage punk songs about lame boys, hot boys and partying. They've been playing shows since the summer of '99 and have become Vancouver's favorite leave-you-in-the-dust trio! Impossibly infectious, hooky-as-all-get-out, deliciously lo-fi, rocked-out-Nikki And the Corvettes style power-pop/rock and roll with Ramones derived, buzzing, power chords and some of the hottest rock and roll leads this side of a Chuck Berry record.
