Pissing Razors


The etymology of the delightfully named Pissing Razors originates from the band's original lead vocalist, who claimed he was in a whorehouse and, subsequently coming out with an STD (gonorrhea), described the act of urinating felt like he was "pissing razors". He decided to have their debut album produced by ex-Sabbat guitarist Andy Sneap. The band, hailing from El Paso, Texas, would later be fronted by Joe Rodriguez, previously a Lieutenant in the US Navy. Read more on Last.fm
The etymology of the delightfully named Pissing Razors originates from the band's original lead vocalist, who claimed he was in a whorehouse and, subsequently coming out with an STD (gonorrhea), described the act of urinating felt like he was "pissing razors". He decided to have their debut album produced by ex-Sabbat guitarist Andy Sneap. The band, hailing from El Paso, Texas, would later be fronted by Joe Rodriguez, previously a Lieutenant in the US Navy. Pissing Razors history in El Paso can be traced back to Rodriguez and Lynch's tenure with 90's metal band Sadist, the band folding when their singer joined the Navy. Lynch founded the soon to be titled Pissing Razors with Eddie Garcia on drums, his brother on bass and vocalist Loco Pelon.

Rodrigues supplanted Pelon in 1995 as the band toured America with Stuck Mojo and Pro-Pain. The band toured Europe and America as support to Pro-Pain during early 1998. Pissing Razors would pull in new vocalist Jason Bragg for a 2001 album 'Where We Come From' for their new label Spitfire Records. The group would embark on a further round of American dates in 2002, headlined by Cannibal Corpse and billed alongside Dark Funeral and Incantation, commencing on the 24th April in Los Angeles. Bragg pulled out in October and was swiftly replaced by Andre Acosta.

The band had previously announced plans to tour with Skinlab, Dope, and Primer 55 throughout the winter but curtailed these shows due to the vocalist change. A further blow came in quick succession as within days of Bragg's exit guitarist Cesar Soto too left the band. Citing personal differences Soto almost immediately unveiled plans for a fresh act entitled Fueled II Fire, featuring none other than erstwhile Pissing Razors personnel singer Joe Rodriguez and guitarist Matt Lynch alongside former Angelburn bassist Hector Gallardo and drummer Danny Contreras of Wick=War=Burn. Pissing Razors pulled in ex-Single Bullet Theory guitarist Matt Difabio during November. A new studio album, billed as 'Evolution', was set for April 2003 issue and promoted with a North American tour that saw the group allied with 40 Grit, Society 1 and Luxt.

In August it was learned that the Pissing Razors rhythm section of bassist Rick Valles and drummer Eddy Garcia had united in a side project band with the Skinlab pairing of vocalist Steve Esquivel and guitarist Steve Green. Guitarist Matt Difabio bailed out in February of 2004, his priorities with Single Bullet Theory taking precedence. Ex-singer Jason Bragg forged Drip Licorice. In August it would be announced that Pissing Razors bassist Rick Vallez would be handling all guitar duties for Ministry. In mid August 2005 frontman Andre Acosta announced he had joined forces with Single Bullet Theory guitarist Matt Difabio in a new band unit dubbed Preface. Also involved would be John Chernoski on guitar, Jason Dunkerly on drums and Bill Mez on bass.
