The arrival of the Candy Snatchers, from Virginia Beach, into the american punk rock scene, has been a big earthquake. In a short time with a handful of singles, one LP and a CD compilation of these singles, they have toured the whole U.S.A. a few times, have been Maximun R'n'R cover sleeve (as well on a few more prestigious magazines) leaving a trail of blood, drunkness and high octane punk rock. Their sound plays tribute to The Devil Dogs or The Didjits, but also to a lot of classics: Saints, Stooges or even The Rolling Stones. Safety Pin Records reference, is for The Candy Snatchers, the first european release. There is an original son "30 Grams to Life", a good sample of their wild sound, and a furious cover version of "Fresh Rag", an unrelease Stooges tune, covered before by Iggy Pop's homeboy Matt Gimmick, back in 1977.got no doubt that this 7" will be definitive Candy Snatchers introdution in Europe and the confirmation of their wild attitude in U.S.A.
