Ox Fanzine

Thank you to Triebi & Ox Fanzine 152 for giving our record such a great review (9/10!!!)

English translation;
RABIES BABIES has been around since 1999, and only now they are making their debut. Unfortunately, what the band from London, active as a trio since 2018, presents here is a rough, desolate and furious mix of punk rock, hardcore and noise. The three name as influences beside KLEENEX, SLITS also BLACK FLAG and remind me of bands like SPIDER CUNTS or 86’D. In their lyrics they criticize the handling of sexual abuse in our scene or sexist pick-up lines while riding a bike. So the A side is also called “Anger side”. But also the – her – fun does not come too briefly. And these songs can be found on the “Fun side” – be it “La La La” or “I fought the floor and floor won”, which lyrically at least should be the British answer to “Jung kaputt spart Altersheime”. The – unfortunately only – six songs come in a colorful package including lyrics fanzine and on white vinyl. For me already a contender for my record of the year!

Rabies Babies: Rape is Rape, Even if the Rapist is in a Band That You Like – single of the year

From Loudwomen.org

LOUD WOMEN

‘Rape is Rape, Even if the Rapist is in a Band That You Like’ screams London DIY punk stalwarts Rabies Babies, and we couldn’t agree with them harder. We’re declaring this our single of 2020.

It seems like every day we’re hearing about another band, even within our own scene, who have members who have abused or even raped. And yet these abusers and rapists are still supported by their band, by the fans, and by the music press. This song is a crystal clear, in your face reminder for anyone who still needs it, that you can never separate the music from the assholes who created it. Here’s the band saying that better:

“Just because someone is in a band that you like doesn’t mean they are incapable of sexual assault. Too often when men in bands are accused of assault the victim is called a liar, blamed, and…

Rape Is Rape, Even If The Rapist Is In A Band That You Like

9 days to go until our record is released! Here is one of the songs from it…
Rape Is Rape, Even If The Rapist Is In A Band That You Like

Just because someone is in a band that you like doesn’t mean they are incapable of sexual assault. Too often when men in bands are accused of assault the victim is called a liar, blamed, and is ostracised. This song is not commenting on any particular person or incident. We believe that the problem is widespread – almost all of the women we know in the punk scene have experienced some levels of sexual assault or violence, it is time that the problem is taken seriously and we get rid of the culture that gives men in bands a free pass to act how they want with no consequences.
