Alamo Race Track is an indierock band, founded and based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The band rose from the ashes of Redivider (1997-2001), a melodic guitar band that won the Grote Prijs van Nederland (‘Grand Prize of The Netherlands’), Holland’s number one band battle, in 1998. As Diederik Nomden - musically a key figure - left the group, Ralph Mulder (guitar/vocals), David Corel (bass/vocals), Len Lucieer (guitar) and Guy Bours (drums) decided to carry on as Alamo Race Track. This was towards the end of 2001. The name change also marked a dramatic shift in sound and therefore, effectively, the birth of a new band.
The band’s sound has been described as “introspective like Sparklehorse or Neil Young’s Harvest, but with a big city buzz”, whereas newspaper The Austin Chronicle felt that “Alamo Race Track. . . spills blood on the tracks with the shake ‘n’ bake of Silkworm and The Jesus Lizard.”
