Routeens - s/t LP
Aside from being a totally crunchy, upbeat garage punk banger in the vein of Rata Negra and Youth Avoiders – this 7” wins points for me cuz Routeens are from Giessen. It’s a dismal town in the middle of German. It was bombed really heavily at the end 1944. 75% of it was destroyed. It seems depressing - full of students and post war concrete architecture. Yet somehow, it’s a hotbed of really good punk music and you know Routeens aren’t gonna be rich posers. This self titled record has some real gems on it –
focus is an instantly catchy hit. That hi-hat!!! It’s so fast! The bass at the beginning of Courage – it’s so fat! They’ve nailed the production of this record too – it suits the band perfectly. Listening to it sounds like you’re watching them in a dingy squat in Giessen and they are fucking nailing it.
