Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's a shagadelic surfin' safari, and The Bomboras have enough potato salad and board wax for everybody. Featuring some salty sax from ex-X greaser Billy Zoom, this disc is shaking from the get-go, covering much of the same dusty pop culture (i.e. beach blanket bingo) turf as our own Surf Trio, though they lack some variation in style. The lead guitar (every surf band's calling card), which alternates between down /dirty and clean/nimble is ferocious throughout, particularly on "The Creeper" (a "Wipe-Out" pilfer) and on the fuzzed-out, Ventures-like whirl, "Pier 13." With the addition of a spicy Farfisa organ for some extra texture (not to mention the occasional sax and harmonica), the sound is full and extra jumpy. Granted, the surf thing is getting cliché, but when it's this basic and bashing, you won't have much to gripe about. --John Chandler
 

CD Reviews

Man those cats can whale!
05/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once I had a listen to these cats I threw my Boss Martian and Phantom Surfer records in the trash. The Bomboras have become the band to watch out for . I can't get enough of sound that will send you into a fuzzed out frenzie!"
Totally cool pseudo-soundtrack

"I just wish they could make it into a real movie! The Bomboras have again created a total sonic experience. You can practically see the lovely young surver-chicks as they race away from the monster. The world needs more music like this--it has a roaring energy that has been sorely missing in today's music."
