It’s hard to classify certain bands and Cutter Punx fit in that place between genres. While still clearly a Punk Rock band, they still have influences from much darker and slower realms. A three-piece outfit with an undeniable fierceness about them, Cutter Punx does not shy away from getting political or getting heavy, all the while getting melodic, too. They’re razor blade punk, a subset that’s as dark as it is hopeful in it’s own way.
They’re playing at Mal’s Bar Friday September 21, 2018 at 9:30 p.m. and I’m very much looking forward to seeing a full set. Check out the audio interviews below, recorded recently when Jerry (guitar and vocals), Izzy (Drums) and C. James Fister (Bass) came by the South Pasadenan to talk bit about the show, what Cutter Punx is all about, where the band finds influences and, most importantly, why they do what they do.
Here’s a sample track called ‘1939’ to get you excited.
