Goonbomb are a band who've been gigging around town tirelessly over the past year with a distinctive punk thoroughbred sound, unmatched in these parts. Punters at their shows can expect a sweaty high pitched guitar heavy rukus - something about these guys makes movement infectious.
Their debut single 'Listen' captures this perfectly, with a beautifully gritty tone 'tis a real mover and shaker. Fans of Thee Oh Sees or Eddy Current Suppresion Ring will feel right at home with frontman Ricky Albeck's screeching guitar being a particular highlight. It has been a big couple of months for the three piece, recently signing to the brilliant Swirl Records. They're joining the ranks with other great bands like Siamese, Druid Fluids, Somnium and fellow goon band Goon Wizzard. On top of this, the group are launching 'Listen' with two massive shows, both at home and interstate (see below for details).
If you're as into 'Listen' as much as we are, catch the G bomb at Gizzfest tommorow night on the Punk Ass Kids stage for what is sure to be a huge night. The 16th of December also ought to be a ripper with the boys putting together a stellar lineup of other local acts. The energy output of this band still leaves us stunned every time, you'd do well to catch them.
