About Jimmy Razor:
Columbus rock veteran Jim Hutter has harbored a love for the simplicity of pre-psychedelic and post-punk rock for most of his life. When he is not thumping bass for those Gleefully Obnoxious rockers The Moops, he dons a six-string and plays solo sets of high energy acoustic rock 'n' roll that owes a huge debt to Memphis in 1956, Liverpool in 1964, and CBGB's in 1977. Sad introspection and slow tempoes are not for Jimmy Razor, who slings a six-string janglebox with as much energy as The Ramones, trying to push those emotional buttons that people actually enjoy feeling.
