The band consists of Alan Always on vocals, Rex Bull on guitar and backing vocals, Wayne Shadow on bass, and Whip Justice on drums. Rangers has played festival gigs at Raumarock and Canal Street and also won the contest "Øresus" at Raumarock. 3) Rangers was a punk/melodic hardcore band from the city of Szczecin, Poland. It consisted of Michał Biela (voc., bass), presently a member of Ścianka and Kristen, Michał Rychlicki (drums), also a member of Kristen, and Piotr Skotnicki (guitar), an ex-member of punk band Reżim. They recorded their first album entiltled "1" in 1998 for Pasażer Records. The songs on the album were fast-paced hc/punk tracks, which, however, were extremely melodic.
The band played music similar to that of The Almighty Trigger Happy, Millencollin, or Pridebowl. The lyrics were mostly about feeling bad about oneself, loneliness, and low self esteem, which makes Rangers a precursor of emo in Poland. After recording the album, Biela and Rychlicki lost interest in playing punk music and devoted themselves entirely to their up-to-then side project Kristen, in which they created experimental, half-improvised music, that had nothing to do with punk. Rangers decided to record their last album, half of which were recorded in the old line up, and the other half with a new vocalist, Kopek, an ex-member of punk band Oko.
The album was published again by Pasażer Records and entitled "2". Both albums were only available on cassettes, not on cd's; so the band is somewhat forgotten. 4) Rangers, aka Plavci, is a Czech folk band formed in 1964.
