The Crispies are a garage/punk band from Vienna, Austria. They have been raising Valhalla since 2014 and Ring My Doorstep (March'17) is the fourth single from their debut album Death Row Kids (Oct'16).
2. What kind of tune are they kicking it with?
Ring My Doorstep is a primal re-invention of Queen's Will We Will Rock You; stripped down to the bone and with grit not glam. Hip hop and punk rock come together into a song that swaggers into the party, oozing intensity and as cool as fuck. Slam-poet Anna adds some twist to the vodka.
3. Who do The Crispies sound like?
The Orwells, PARTYBABY and The White Stripes.
4. What is the good word from the press in regards to Ring My Doorstep?
“Loud and raw” – Spill Magazine.
“We call it strut-rock” – Super World Indie Tunes.
“A punk manifesto” – FYH.
5. Which bands have inspired The Crispies?
They have some love for Ezra Furman and Bass Drum Of Death.
6. Why should I listen to Ring My Doorstep?
Because you love We Will Rock You. Because you want to listen to young wolves tearing it up. Because you want to listen to a band that matters.
7. What are The Crispies best songs?
Bad Blood is visceral. Noose'N'Go is a lackadaisical rattler. Outta The Sun races out of the blocks, primitive and dangerous.
8. Any last words?
The band all graduated music college together and are all left-handed.

St. Tropez are a garage punk band from Amsterdam, Holland. They have been tearing it up (in their recent reincarnation) since 2014 and have one long player in the vault. St. Tropez’s favorite music varies from Dinosaur Jr. and Wilco to Bach. They sound like Beck crossed with The Stooges. Democracy (Feb’17) is the lead single from their E.P. Debate (Feb’17) and is a greedy garage riff backing a hip hop influenced vocal delivery with a harsh word to say about the current political climate.
