As the latest Punk addition to Itchy Metal, rebel quartet "The Backup Razor" is an established entity on the Santa Cruz music scene, both as a member of the artist community and driver of the scene...

With many groups including The Avengers, The Nuns, Mutants, The Offs, and the Dead Kennedys having built thriving careers out of northern California, the Bay Area is no stranger to Punk Rock. Abundant in arts and culture, it makes sense that local geography continues to birth an unstoppable, underground movement abundant in Punk.

Included in the mix is Santa Cruz’s “The Backup Razor”, an eclectic group fueled by a love for “what they do” and propelled by a mission to keep the local music scene alive. Front-man Jesse Williams is the voice behind the band, supported by Nick Hardesty on guitar, Jonathan Mumma on drums and Jeff Badagliacca on bass.

Driven by a genuine passion for expression, TBR has a resume that would put some of the most tenured bands to shame. Sharing stage with literally hundreds of artists and myriads of venues, the rebel quartet has become an established entity across the region as a member and driver on the local scene.

“If you’re trying to make an impact, it’s not enough to make music and hope that something is going to happen,” states Ed Fassio, founder and President of Itchy Metal Entertainment – a Los Angeles-based indie music label who knows a thing or two about staying active. “Live performance is one part of it, but equally important are your community affairs and industry associations. The Backup Razor is a prime example of true involvement. IME is as much concerned with finding great music as we are at finding great people that perpetuate the movement. In TBR, we’re very fortunate to have found both.”

Fassio was introduced to The Backup Razor through Gruesom Grimp, a fellow Bay Area musician and manager of Itchy Metal Artist, A Band of Orcs. Always keeping an eye out for great additions to the growing label’s artist and partner community, Grimp spoke highly of the band’s showmanship and contributions on the local scene. Shortly after, he provided links to their material which sparked both interest and curiosity.

Regarding TBR’s vocalist (Jesse Williams), Grimp adds, “I always call him one of the hardest working guys in Santa Cruz. [As a partner in music] he’s one of the best we’ve had.”

Itchy Metal’s rapid expansion is due in-part to a strong community of artists bonded by a love for music, appreciation of art and dedication to make a difference. It was natural that both IME and TBR culture would be instantly compatible. “There is a perfect combination of elements at work here,” adds Fassio. “Along with great music, we’ve found a very strong music activist and keen business group. That’s a great foundation for future success.”

The Backup Razor plans multiple projects with Itchy Metal which include some well strategized release plans, promotion and performance opportunities. Fans can expect great, original things from this new combination.
