The Big One 4 Festival

Posted on 18 November, 2015 at 18:35 Comments comments (0)

We had a brilliant weekend taking the #RazorsOnTour show to Dorset for The Big One 4 Festival. The 7:00am flight to Bournemouth didn't even put us off as we had plenty of laughs & hopefully recruited some new Razor fans after a stomping Saturday night set in front on a large enthusiastic Specialized crowd! A big thank you to all at Specialized for looking after us so much. Next up is our EP Launch on Friday the 27th of Nov at Stereo so hopefully we will see you all there!

Razors On Tour

Posted on 8 November, 2015 at 15:40 Comments comments (0)

We are excited by our very first trip down to the south coast of England on Saturday. We will be playing on Saturday night at 8:00pm as part of The Big One 4 Festival. This event is organised by Specialized and will be promoting the Combat Cancer album that came out earlier this year, featuring 68 different versions of songs written by The Clash/Joe Strummer. As well as lots of ska based tunes, we will also be playing our version of the Joe Strummer tune Johnny Appleseed which features on the Combat Cancer album. For more information about Specialized/The Big One 4/Combat Cancer then check out All funds raised go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The whole festival will be broadcast live on Wolfman Radio so if you can't make it down to Dorset then you can listen live at

It will be great to travel down south all together, although Lesley and Ali will be taking the "tour truck" with all the gear, leaving very early on Saturday morning. The rest of the band will be flying down early on Saturday morning & coming back on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully there will be some Razors coming along to Dorset to check us out, but if not then check us out on the radio. #RazorsOnTour  

First Reviews

The first reviews of our EP - Motown's Lost Its Soul - are starting to come in and they have been amazing! The EP will be released on Friday the 27th of Nov with our friends SUPA & Da Kryptonites coming along to support us! Just £6 for a ticket...

Here is a little flavour of some of the reviews...

"An awfully entertaining EP from an equally entertaining entourage that provide us with a spiffing collection of four tunes formed from a strong blend of soul, blues and a little hint of jazz"... Jason Small, Local Music Scene (Full review here... )

"She's My Baby... is a groovy tune no self-respecting Mod or Modette would pass up the chance of sashaying to on the dance floor. Great horns and Sixties vibe that'll see The Cut Throat Razors fans bouncing at gigs"... Mike Lindley, Ralph's Life (Full review here... )

"One of the best bands I've discovered this year... the eponymous "Motown's Lost Its Soul", a swaggering bold declaration that could get even the most miserable of people dancing on a rainy day... Gabriel Rutherford, The Indiependent (Full review here... )

Motown's Lost Its Soul also had its first play on BBC Radio Scotland thanks to the brilliant Jim Gellatly. If you want to listen again then click on the link... we are between Imagine Dragons & Duran Duran at 2 hours and 45 minutes...

More reviews coming soon so stay tuned and don't forget you can pre order your digital copy of the EP on ITunes here...

The Spree Festival

Wow... What an amazing gig it was this afternoon in The Spiegeltent, Paisley. The Spree Festival was brilliant and it was a packed house in a great venue. We loved seeing queues at the door & hope everyone managed to get in OK. There was certainly lots of money being raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust! The stage was certainly shaking with all 11 of us on stage... Lesley even managing to make a mad dash with her baritone sax to join us for some "Johnny Appleseed" action! It was a fantastic homecoming for Scott, being a local Paisley lad...

Here is a great panoramic shot taken by Gary from the drum stool...
