´79 allover! right from the reeperbahn the infamous KIDNAPPERS return home and put Germany back on the punk map with their new album „Will Protect You“. And as their former two albums this can be equally considered as essential. Yes, the KIDNAPPERS divide the ocean and deliver an album of powerpop pearls in their own upfront manner. To catch up, the KIDNAPPERS are a three-piece of twin-brothers Philipp (gt,vc) and Chris (gt,vc) and Netzhemd-Timo on drums and record cover. The KIDNAPPERS started in their early teens as the HIGHSCHOOL ROCKERS some highly acclaimed 45s and with quitting school just changed names into the KIDNAPPERS. After the stunning debut „Ransom Notes and Telephone Calls“ they got hijacked onto legendary RIP OFF RECORDS with the „Neon Signs“ album. All KIDNAPPERS records received raving reviews and they found their spot between hot dogs and their 90‘s heros TEENGENERATE, LOLI & THE CHONES and classic STIFF RECORDS sound. It´s it´s dutch it would be HOT POCKETS. Come on, it would be blatantly wrong to tell that there is same formula for the new album. It´s ten originals recorded in Chris‘ kitchen during the winter - it ain‘t LoFi! This is the loud on-the-spot punk-power pop album for a long while. The Hamburg boys hail the flag for a sound which seemed to be forgotten the last years. We talk about KING LOUIE, GENTLEMEN JESSE, KING TUFF here (Be sure having ALIEN SNATCH! records catalog - we cherry pickin´ bands for that). What better album title than go for the the last song on the album - „Will Protect You“! It´s a record to be filed next power pop one hit wonders, a perfect dose of NICK LOWE inspired pop songwriting and utter respect for the CHEAP TRICK knack and the DICTATORS guitar riffage. They sing are about girls, girlfriends and whores. Now they quit their jobs to go on tour.
