Louis Lingg and the Bombs is an exciting Parisian punk rock band formed in the summer of 2006.
The line up:
Josh (ex-Tchiki Boum, Dummycrusher, Producer of Underground Railroad, Foxglove, First Part and NMA ) on Vocals and Guitar.
Jerome (from Flashing on Bright and Jan Bat) on Drums and Vocals.
Laurent (from Udigrudi) on Bass and Vocals.
Ben (singer songwriter and visual artist) on Guitar and Vocals.
Punk bands like The Epoxies, Antiflag, Rancid, NOFX and Greenday.
They have a strong love of ’78 style punk like The Buzzcocks, The Clash and The Undertones.
Never forgetting that they are children of the 90s having grown up with bands such as Nirvana, Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney and The Butthole Surfers.
The group is named after Louis Lingg, the famous Chicago anarchist who committed suicide on death row in 1887.
After a series of demos, they finished their first 7 track CD EP in September 2006.
Louis Lingg and the Bombs: punk
Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. The bombs they throw are musical, they come from Paris (they could only come from Paris!) and they'll grab you and demand your instant attention.
Their sound is a mix of ultra-political anarchic punk rock and fizzing children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. Laced with so much energy and a whole sonic attack of chaos and fizzy energy, they throw a crazy live party. They could start a riot in a phone box and regularly blow up little bars with pop Molotovs and bang bang boom boom punk rock energy!
The group is named after Louis Lingg, the famous Chicago anarchist who committed suicide on death row in 1887 after the first May Day protests. Some of their songs are ultra-political anarchic punk rock and some are children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. ALL of their songs are full of fun-fun-fun pop hooks! Their music is 100% DIY and is mostly recorded in their bedrooms. Made with cheap instruments and broken computers, their records sound great. Homemade DIY music doesn't mean sub-standard. Their sound is a manic, punk rock explosion - a poppy riot starter.
