'' Let's keep this simple: Columbian Neckties is the Band I've had the most personal experience with, as a label. On top of that, they are one of the few Garagepunk-outfits, who can simultaneously count Names such as Tim Warren (Crypt Records),Alfred Bradford (Green Hell) as well as Lars Krogh (Bad Afro) amongst their die-hard Fans, apart from myself that is, of course! Enough reason to be straight-up subjective when it comes to this band and that's exactly my point here. To me, Columbian Neckties is Europe's finest Garagepunk band and definitely in the top 5 internationally. No one shreds the guitar faster than Henrik and no one comes close to Jeppes vocal delivery. Everything just seems to fit perfectly with the Columbian Neckties. This is Punk ? Punk and not Rock in disguise. Garage will always be Garage and that means getting your hands dirty. Their shows never fall short from being total revelations and are cramped with energy to an extent, that you could illuminate the Autobahn at night, if we were able to feed that energy into our power circuits. Most of all, Columbian Neckties are real! Not just Students jamming around, No Dressmen, no 'we'll-do-whatever-the-industry-can-sell' ? types, but rather the boys from nextdoor who happen to play mindblowing Garagepunk. This is what counts and sticks to both brain and heart. After a 3-year break, Columbian Neckties is now finally releasing their new single ''Yes Ma'am'' and once again taking it to all those stages, that mean the world to me.''

The faszination of old Garage Punk records exists from the unruly will for roughness, being a fan and glanders in the music. The wish not to cut the diamond but smash it identifies Garage Punk. To clarify the chronological range we refer to the heritage of Crypt, one of the few legitimate successors from the idea of Rock'n'Roll and Punk. It is more than just an act of boys in Chucks and denim jackets but the promise that Rock'n'Roll can and should be nonconformist. The Columbian Neckties, founded 1998, are releasing 11 years after "Takeaway" their fourth album "It's all gone". Still playing the best Highspeed Garagepunk with a good pinch of MC5 Rock the world ever listened to. Every fan of New Bomb Turks, Guitar Wolf, TV Killers or Cellophane Suckers knows what I am talking about and will put this record on the turntable. It is recommended to the rest. Recorded the 14th and 15th of October 2015 in Pigsty Studio by Kasper Westeraa. Clean recordings and levels set by Kasper Westeraa. NO mixing. Mastered by Wolfgang Hazelwood.

Biography

In 1999 Shake Appeal broke up and so Guitarist Henrik and Bass player Simon joined forces with new singer Jeppe Escobar and drummer Slambert (aka Slamboy). The music changed to a more Rock'n'Roll inspired punk rock. Not as fast and furious as Shake Appeal but more swinging in a Saints, Fun Things, Infections kinda way...only faster! One of the first gigs was at the Adios Moshable Festival in Copenhagen where we opened day 2 at Loppen. This concert was recorded by the Danish National Radio and a couple of months later the whole gig was broadcasted in the radio. Wow. After doing a lot of support jobs the band decided to do some recordings for record purposes. In January 2000 they recorded the first demo: 9 songs on an analogue 4-track tape recorder to ensure the right '77 feel. The tape was put on CDR and sent around. Tony Slug reviewed it in Hit List magazine: "...somebody release this!" - and somebody did! High School Reject from Holland decided to release a 10" and it turned into the 6-track lo-fi punk rock blast Scene of the Crime.

The record got great reviews almost everywhere and even the most jaded man in punk rock Tim Warren was impressed: "GOD DAMN does this record smokeass! Ex-Shake Appeal members blastin out 6 extremely hot & raw & loud punkers... If you dug the Dirtys alb you are gonna dig this." The following year the band toured around Europe, both on their own and one tour with Dutch punk rock out-fit the Hot Pockets. In Kassel they met Gregor and a deal for a full length album was made right after the show there. In 2001 their first album "Abrance!" (Colombian for "Get outta my way!") was released on Sounds of Subterrania and more touring and more good reviews followed. During the late fall of 2002 Sounds of Subterrania put out the second album "Why Change Your Moves?" More of the same balls out high-speed punk rock and a cover of AC/DC's "Riff Raff". Slambert and Simon decided to leave the band in 2003 but that hasn't changed much. Henrik and Jeppe quickly found a new bass player and drummer and they haven't looked back. More new songs, more kicking ass and more touring is coming up. Gigs in Sweden and Germany have been played and others are on the way. In 2004 The Neckties also got their name on a record in the States. The Compilation CD "Greaseball Melodrama". Compiled by none other than New Bomb Turks singer Eric Davidson and put out by Gearhead. The Neckties also managed to get their name on a compilation so far away as Japan and later this year the japanish people should be feeded with danish dynamite rock by help from rock'n'roll gods and the danish goverment. Since the end of the last tour The Neckties have spend alot of time in the rehearsingroom, making new material for the third baby. In the beginning 2005 The Columbian Neckties finally finished their third album. The result is very soon to be in public, and The Neckties will once again present the record on a tour to Germany and it's neighbours with the energy and smile that characterize them. Like Alien Snatch Records wrote on their website. "Yesterday the COLUMBIAN NECKTIES played and I can say that they are one of most rockin' bands I ever saw on stage. I'm happy, cause now I can laugh about all those dozens of tough guy cock-rock Electric Gluein'HellaBabySucker bands which are around since some years, I never cared about them too much. Loved the UPPER CRUST - that's all! The Neckties are now. One not-of-this-earth guitar player, fast tunes, the smile, the inperfection and a good soundman. Thank you guys!
