Off The Record


There are at least 3 bands that go by the name of "Off The Record": 1) Off The Record was a punk band that formed in the spring of 1997. From 1997 to 1999, they played extensively throughout California, where their unique punk style and energetic live show gained them recognition, eventually landing them a contract with Tooth & Nail Records. They recorded their first album, Remember When, at the infamous Blasting Room with legendary musicians and producers Bill Stevenson and Stephan Egerton, back in 2000. Read more on Last.fm
There are at least 3 bands that go by the name of "Off The Record": 1) Off The Record was a punk band that formed in the spring of 1997. From 1997 to 1999, they played extensively throughout California, where their unique punk style and energetic live show gained them recognition, eventually landing them a contract with Tooth & Nail Records. They recorded their first album, Remember When, at the infamous Blasting Room with legendary musicians and producers Bill Stevenson and Stephan Egerton, back in 2000. After its release, the band signed with New School Records and recorded their 2nd album, Mulligan, at Orange Crush Studios in December 2001 which opened doors for the band to tour more and/or share the stage with acts, such as Strung Out, MxPx, The Vandals, Slick Shoes, Dogwood, Over It and more. In mid-2003, Off The Record was approached by Ryan Greene - one of punk rock's most respected producers - about putting his talent to work for them.

Neither Off The Record nor New School Records could turn down his proposal, so the band went into the studio in the summer of 2003 to record Nothing New. The quartet combined metal, punk and pop to create a five-track EP of catchy melodies. This EP was the final release of the band and broke up around 2004/2005. 2) The other is a beatbox band from Belgium. In 2004, Off The Record rises from the ashes of Flemish theatre collective Podium Modern: their last play evolves into a vocal band. 4 men set out on a search to what they can achieve musically using only sounds produced by mouths and vocal chords.

They differ from the hip-hop beatbox culture in that songs and group sound are all important. They differ from a'capella groups in that they are each equipped with a decent set of cojones. On their self-titled debut album released in 2005, they show they can confirm on a record what they have proven live throughout the Benelux by then: producing swinging, funny, moving, enticing songs that make you forget only mouths are producing the sounds. In the summer of 2005 they prove they can stand their ground on the bigger festivals in Belgium and Holland.

After a change of personnel the band starts work on their second album in 2007. With "Don't Wait Up" Off The Record is aiming at radio and dancefloor alike; ALL songs are still produced by voices, tongues and lips, but the result sounds like a contemporary pop record. The first single "Pinkerbeat" (nothing to do with the colour... 'pinker' is Flemish for the indicator on a car) was released at the end of januari 2008.

The album was released in march. Since that time OTR have returned to their natural habitat: a stage near you. 3) A rock band from Jupiter, FL. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
