Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 1998
The Zoobombs hail from Japan yet play American-style punk-rock groovy blues à la Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Firewater. They infuse the music with manic and naïve energy; it's hard to tell whether they're playing with such unironic vigor or they're missing the mark so widely that they're creating something new by accident. Either way, it's damned refreshing to hear. Leave it to an outsider to discover something new and exciting in something old. --Tod Nelson

CD Reviews

Zoobombs are Super Funky Okay!
Borkus | Richmond, VA United States | 06/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Zoobombs could be a novelty act - if they didn't ROCK SO HARD! It's the John Spencer Blues Explosion with a Japanese work ethic - play harder, hotter and tighter than anyone. You won't know what all of the lyrics mean (unless you speak Japanese), but you may still find yourself humming along and bobbing your head to the music."

"Described as funky hardcore, these Japanese guys are incredible. Y'know how The Hives have this intense, fierce, brash garage-rock sound? Well I'm telling right now...the Zoobombs even *out-Hives* The Hives. The entire album, it's like these guys are totally 'in your face' with guitars, organs, and screeching/chanting vocals. My goodness. It's almost like they're obsessed about letting you hear their music, and won't let you off-the-hook until you finish hearing each song."
