Bomboras - Savage Island LP
1995 debut album from the L.A.-based instrumental Surf outfit. The Bomboras were formed in the summer of 1994, sharing a love of '60's Surf/Garage such as the Ventures, Booker T. and the Sonics. Donning Halloween masks, Tiki Heads, and Day of the Dead regalia onstage, the five some tempered their retro- styling's with an update by way of the Ramones, the Pandora's and Nuggets. Accompanied by frenzied Go Go girls, spitting flames, stage-diving, and destroying their own equipment, The Bomboras' livid funhouse take on surf rock became an object of fan adoration, albeit a worry to the local fire department.
