The Boom Bang — Bummer Camp 7"

None September 30th, 2010


Oklahoma City's noisiest quartet will release its full-length debut sometime next year, but it sounds like The Boom Bang just can't wait that long.

On Sept. 17, the band teamed up with Guestroom Records to put out a 7-inch that, hopefully, is an early indication of what we can expect in 2011.

At four songs, "Bummer Camp" is a messy, disastrous delight. Two of the tracks, "Tokyo Roll" and "Swamp City," appeared on the act's 2009 "Pizzapocalypse" release, but "We Skeletons" and "Run Way Away" are new.

The latter is the better. Drums scatter like buckshot, and buzzing guitars rev like amplified electric drills while singer James Smith's echoed reverb completely consumes his voice. This is too slapdash to be considered garage' maybe storage-unit rock?

Only 300 copies of "Bummer Camp" were printed. Bummer, indeed. The record is $5 at Guestroom Records, 3701 N. Western, or 125 E. Main in Norman. " —Joe Wertz
