The Ripcordz havent been around forever -- it just seems that way. Formed in 1980, the band played various basements and dives before deciding they really didnt have anything better to do and really started paying attention to what they were doing. The result, their first album, Ripcordz Are Go(d) released in 1988. Since then, theyve released ten full-length albums, gone on 13 cross-Canada tours and played well over a thousand shows (they stopped counting a while back). The sound includes a mix of rock n roll, hardcore, Punk and pop (mostly Punk, wed say).
