Louis Lingg and the Bombs Bio:
Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. They come from Paris where they regularly blow up little bars with explosions of snot and beer fuelled punk rock energy. They released a 7 inch single in 2009 with the legendary Damaged Goods Record label (Buzzcocks, Billy Childish, Helen Love.) Pretty amazing stuff!
The group is named after Louis Lingg, the famous Chicago anarchist who committed suicide on death row in 1887. Some of their songs are ultra-political anarchist punk rock and some of their songs are like children’s nursery rhymes. ALL of their song’s are full of interesting pop hooks and melodies and they are sung with energy and commitment.
Punk bands like The Briefs, The Epoxies, Antiflag, Pansy Division and The Dickies.
They have a strong love of ’77 style punk like The Buzzcocks, The Clash, The Adverts 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 children’s songs is clearly visible, as is their 60s influences; Shirley Ellis, Aretha Franklin and Nancy Sinatra.
They have played extensively in the Paris region with a huge range of great bands national and international. Entirely DIY, they have built up a reputation as one the best bands on the Paris scene. They have been broadcasted on over 25 radio stations in France, many more abroad, and have been featured extensively on blogs and fan recommendations the world over.
After a series of demos, they finished their first 7 track CD EP in December 2006. It was self released in france on their “ultrasonar” imprint.
In September 2007, they released the single Princess Mononoke in the UK on ORG Records to acclaim and radio play on XFM and Resonance FM.
Their song, Chomsky changed my life, is on the new PPP Zine / Generation Extreme compilation (France).
Chomsky Changed My Life is also featured on the Ferme de la Justice compilation alongside great bands like I Love UFO.
Their song, Conspiracy, is on volume nine of the Netbloc compilations released by Blocsonic (USA). Blocsonic is run by members of Slamjamz, Public Enemy’s record label.
