1) Randy are a punk rock band from Hortlax, Sweden, formed in 1992. They are inspired by older punk bands as The Misfits and Ramones. So far, they have released six albums. The latest album is called Randy the Band.
Randy have been dropped from their previous label burning heart records - popular punk label based in Sweden, and are currently seeking a new label. ------------ Real bands are hard to find nowadays, but Randy is definitely the real deal. When members in other bands happily avoid each other after a long tour, Randy go on vacation together. They are their own family, their own subculture that would take a sociologist (or a psychologist) months to examine.
That's why the title of their new, sixth album is a well chosen one - "Randy the Band". Randy is a band in the way that you can only be if you have grown up in a no-hope small-town and played together since childhood. This has brought them the knowledge that nothing comes for free, and an "us versus them"-attitude that is still intact after all the years. Together they have walked the long road, from the DIY-gigs at the youth-centers in the north of Sweden, to becoming a well-renowned name in punk circles all over the world.Make Randy Playlist
