The brainchild of sensible pop and rock 'n' roll ambassador, Chad Gooch.
THE BOOM BANG (garage, surf, punk)
..."The Boom Bang place themselves on the Rock-N-Roll map somewhere in-between the Memphis based lock-groove boogie of the Oblivians and the reverb drenched neo-psyche styling’s of Left Coasters like Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees...The guitar work of Tommy McKenzie is the perfect blend of Ramons-ey fuzz bop and 13th Floor Elevators ricocheting sonic dive and wail...Vocalist James Smith, sounding like the lovechild of Lux Interior and Black Francis, brings the same snotty attitude to his melodies and lyrical attack that he does to his rafter-swinging, middle finger flying live show. And yes, all this comes together
beautifully." - Salad Days Music
