The Boomers


http://myspace.com/boomersband -The band lined up in 2004, Rome – Italy, around vocalist and guitar player Marco (ex Overlord) and drummer Fausto (ex Manimal), two animators of the Roman punk’n’roll scene between the 80’s and the 90’s. The duo was joined by Alessandro (Fight like a brave and Fumo passivo), young and eclectic guitar player from Alghero, and decided to remain a trio without bass guitar…The band has just finished to record his first CD with 11 originals and 2 covers: “Glad to see you go” as a dutiful tribute to the Ramones and a very personal version of Doors’ “The end”.

“Halfway between the junkyard of comedy and cock rock, peppered with Italian pop sensibility, sweet riffing and awesome accents, we give you the first ever Ether selection from Rome. Enter The Boomers. Suckingly, there’s only two songs up on their page, but they are fairly amazing, borderline classic tracks… oh yeah, and they both end with “Man”, man. “The Conquer Man” is a mix between the sing-song brilliance of Claypool’s Primus and the best Hives track ever recorded. And “The Second Coming Man”, if you can believe it, is about one part Johnny Cash and another ZZ Top Italia, but please… don’t listen to my retarded comparisons, just check out The Boomers. (Again: the killer logos do not let up.)” (http://ligulate.blogspot.com/)

Little Bag.

Death of a superhero.

Little Bag was featured on the credits page of The Boomers‘ album “Fast and Bulbous”, probably because one of the songs talks about a man suffocating in a plastic bag. Actually “Little Bag” is a story I’m gonna write sooner or later.
