Biography

Rackets & Drapes are a shock rock band from Denver, Colorado. Their style often combines many musical styles, such as gothic rock, electronica, screamo and alternative metal. Formed in 1996 they haven’t enjoyed any international success, although their song Plastic Jesus became vastly popular because of its misinterpretation as being a System of a Down song. The band claims to be Christian, as some of their earlier lyrics prove. They released three full-length albums - Candyland, Trick or Treat and Love Letters from Hell (the latter was once available for a free download through their MySpace fansite) and one EP, titled The Sick and the Beautiful. Since not much is known about the band and the members themselves behave very mysteriously, there is no proof whether the album Iconoclasm, which was planned to be released in 2008, is already out, neither is there a proof that the band is still active.

    Nevermind. Apparently we're not allowed to post lyrics..... lame. Well, the lyrics are on hundreds of sites across the internet, and since R&D have some pretty controversial topics I encourage you to look them and learn what they were trying to say.

    Added lyrics to songs. Also added redirects on all the bad titles. :)

    I have everything R&D ever released, even the rare demo tapes. I'm not willing to part with them, but can make copies if they are OOP and the band grants permission (which should be easy to obtain). Otherwise, use the links above to see if you can purchase the songs on iTunes or eBay. Now I'm just waiting for Iconoclasm! \m/

    I have some rare R&D discs that I may be willing to part with, if you are intersted, just email me straight away, as I don't check on here much. Also, I do have Eva-O's Damnation CD that was taken straight from the master mix, it was not track separated, as it was not released yet. fred.meyer@hotmail.com

    Anyone know what ever happened to R&D? I'm assuming that they broke up, but I'm just wondering under what circumstances and such.
