Louis Lingg hates your laws !!!
German immigrant Louis Lingg!!
Louis Lingg ist der Mann in der Mitte!
Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. The bombs they throw are musical, they come from Paris (they could only come from Paris!) and they'll grab you and demand your instant attention. Their sound is a mix of ultra-political anarchic punk rock and fizzing children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. Laced with so much energy and a whole sonic attack of chaos and fizzy energy, they throw a crazy live party. They could start a riot in a phone box and regularly blow up little bars with pop Molotovs and bang bang boom boom punk rock energy!
The group is named after Louis Lingg, the famous Chicago anarchist who committed suicide on death row in 1887 after the first May Day protests. Some of their songs are ultra-political anarchic punk rock and some are children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. ALL of their songs are full of fun-fun-fun pop hooks!
Their music is 100% DIY and is mostly recorded in their bedrooms. Made with cheap instruments and broken computers, their records sound great. Homemade DIY music doesn't mean sub-standard. Their sound is a manic, punk rock explosion - a poppy riot starter.
They finished their first 7 track CD EP in December 2006. (Distributed by Indiz.fr www.indiz.fr/louislinggandthebombs) they played lots of concerts all over Paris and France with loads of rocking bands, national and international.
In September 2007, they released the single Princess Mononoke in the UK on ORG Records and had radio play on many French radio stations as well as stations in Spain, Belgium, New York, Canada, Venezuela, Mexico and XFM and Resonance FM in the UK. http://www.organart.demon.co.uk/singlesclub.htm
