Gama Bomb combine the reckless, head-banging intensity of 80s thrash metal with a 21st century love of all things geek. After self-releasing their first album 'Survival Of The Fastest' in 2005, albums 'Citizen Brain' (2008) and 2009's 'Tales from the Grave in Space' marked them out as a band with big ideas, with 'Tales…' being one of the first albums ever released as a free download by a signed band. Their unique mix of pop culture nods, speed metal and knowing humour won a cult following in Europe and far beyond, which they cemented with tireless touring. In 2013, the band signed to AFM Records to release 'The Terror Tapes', followed this year by their most audacious move yet: 'Untouchable Glory', an unapologetically hooky thrash album inspired by vintage kung fu movies!
Here it comes: “Untouchable Glory”, the 5th studio album of GAMA BOMB; once again a thrashing attack with the necessary dose of humor and a pinch of vintage-kung-fu-movie-style.
Tim Simenon's Bomb the Bass pet project pumped some of the best acid house straight into late-'80s dance clubs. Best known stateside for the seminal "Beat Dis," similarly groundbreaking slow-beat club groove, and the Burt Bacharach cover "Say a Little Prayer," Simenon's brand of acid-laced rap and snappy sampling kept sweat flowing coast to coast. Unfortunately, by the time the band's second album appeared in 1991, Bomb the Bass was all but forgotten in the beginnings of the grunge backlash. However, the sonics have continued to percolate, hence the welcome appearance of the U.K. compilation Beat Dis: The Very Best Of, which serves up a healthy hodgepodge of hits and a neat tweak for aging ravers' long-lost brain cells. In no particular order, Beat Dis unravels 1988 through 1991, commencing with the 12" version of "Beat Dis" and ending with the absurdly short "Megamix," while hitting all the important points in between. First-wave favorites include the aforementioned "Say a Little Prayer" and "Shake It," while the 1991 incarnation weighs in mightily with "Dune Buggy Attack" and the British hit "Winter in July".
