Louis Lingg and the Bombs is an exciting Parisian punk rock band formed in the summer of 2006.
They play a danceable garage punk sound with a new wave pop edge.
Some of their songs are ultra-political anarchist punk rock and some of their songs are like childrens nursery rhymes. ALL of their songs are full of pop hooks and melodies and they are sung with energy and commitment.
After a series of demos, they finished their first 7 track CD EP in September 2006. They are currently trying to build up a press book and are looking to gain more live experience.
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.
In their song-writing however, their admiration of classic childrens songs is clearly visible, as is their 60s influences; Shirley Ellis, Aretha Franklin and Nancy Sinatra.
