The RED CAR BURNS have been growing their sound from the Genitalzs experience, that had been on the scene since several years. The Genitalz were born in 1998, they had changed their members several times, had released a punk rock style demo and definitely had grown stronger after issuing the 7 called Defroid 84 in 2000. The first switch in their sound was created by a new drummer who would define the style of the group, stretching them toward new sounds. Finally the Genitalz released their new CD, recorded for the Decibel Records in 2001. the album is formed from 8 brand-new tracks and a cover of The Smiths. A track from this work was listed in the sampler of Speciale Punk of Rock Sound (a national music magazine) and then several concerts were made in clubs and squat houses all around Italy. Some great gigs are to be mentioned: at the Pac Paciana in Bergamo with the Lonely Kings, at Leoncavallo in Milan and at Pirateria di Porto in Rome with the Digger, at the Mattone Rosso in Vercelli with the Aurora, at Subbuglio in Alessandria with the Eastfield, at the Circolo Giovanile in Appiano (Bolzano) with the Append:x, at the Sga in Arese with the Always Out Numbered, at Lodi with Useless I.D., and many more that we wont mention because of huge neuronal crisis. From 2001 on, the Genitalz also took part in several compilations, such as: Punkina Skassata 2000 and 2001 with opening concerts at the Rainbow in Milan; Riot Records with an opening concert at the Rainbow in Milan. Soniche Avventure vol. 2 issued by the Fridge Records and Punkadeka the compilation vol. 1. In 2002 three of the members of the Genitalz (Mone, Buba and Carlo) together with two friends of them (Pez and Piordo) created a side project called Reverend Judge and recorded a CD (never released) of Indie-Pop sounds (Promise Ring, Braid).
In 2003 the Genitalz locked themselves in their junky rehearsal room in San Colombano al Lambro (MI) and began to write tracks for their new album, which will be out in Autumn 2004 for the Nh-n Records. Since the first listening to their new job The Genitalz finally realized their great potentiality and decided to change their name in Red Car Burns, which doesnt tag their new sound. Their new CD is formed from 11 tracks influenced by some post punk bands from America, such as Hot Water Music, Face to Face and Samiam. Two tours around the Europe in the 2005, another tour around the Europe in the 2006.

Als erstes sticht dem Betrachter dieser CD die wunderschöne Aufmachung ins Auge. Allein dafür muss man die vier jungen Italiener schon lieben. Aber hier geht es ja bekanntlich um Musik, und da wollen wir uns mal nicht beirren lassen. Gespielt wird recht guter Punkrock mit Emo-Einschlag. Klaro erfinden die Burschen hier nichts Neues, dafür machen sie ihr Handwerk aber recht ordentlich. Als Vergleichsmöglichkeit fallen mir HOT WATER MUSIC ein, wegen des mehrstimmigen Gesangs, und LEATHERFACE, wegen der musikalischen Geradlinigkeit. Mir gefällt es recht gut, wenn auch der Sänger ein bisschen an seinem Englisch arbeiten sollte. Da finde ich den auf Italienisch gesungen Song schon um einiges interessanter. (7)
The production of this CD really turns me on! I really love the effort for the label and the band itself. The artwork is so awesome and really suits the music they playing. Red car Burns deliver a perfect combination of melodic hardcore and punk rock. This CD deliver 11 full energetic tunes with melodious guitar riffs and hearty emotional vocal that can make all the lovers mosh, sing-a-long and dance to the beat. Absolutely perfect for the melody to turn you upside down and this won’t let you bored for a single moment! Simple but deep guitar riffs and melodies are mixed with introspective lyrics and feelings of desperation expressed through their deeply emotional music. Owh, I forgot to tell you that this band came from Italy and they obviously inspired by Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and Leatherface. This is a must for all the punk rockers out there.

All About Chaos (
If you're always looking for original and varied music that combines elements of every musical genre you like listening to and if you're into rock (from melodic punk rock to indie), then I think that you should write down the name of this band and try to get a copy of Red Car Burns' debut record released through Nh-N Records, "...When Everything Seems To Be In Silence". These four guys are not new at all to the European scene but, after being around for 6 years under the name The Genitalz, they understood that the time was come for their project to get into something much more serious and mature, The Genitalz finally turned into Red Car Burns. Their debut record as Red Car Burns is in fact "... When Everything Seems To Be In Silence", a record based upon the perfect fusion between melodic punk rock, post rock and indie rock. Thanks to its 11 fresh, innovative and energetic songs, that bring in elements of bands such as Hot Water Music and Jawbreaker, it will be hard for the most pretending listener to get annoied or to avoid getting their mind captured by this record. Simple but deep guitar riffs and melodies are mixed with introspective lyrics and feelings of desperation expressed through their deeply emotional music. Mainly because of my musical tastes, this isn't the kind of band I would listen over and over again but one thing is sure: Red Car Burns undoubtely know what they're doing and they're doing it very very well. While listening to this record we can clearly understand that this band is reborn more than just matured and the result of this process is "... When Everything Seems To Be In Silence", a record that won't pass un-noticed in the European rock scene and this band really deserves it.
