Biography

Columbus, United States (1992 – present)

The New Bomb Turks are an American band from Columbus, Ohio. Formed in 1992, they are part of the early ’90s garage rock revival wave that included bands such as the Dwarves and the Supersuckers. Members have included Jim Weber, Eric Davidson, Bill Randt, Matt Reber and Sam Brown. Their lyrics are generally humorous. While they have a large recorded output, they developed their following through their high-energy shows.

They have released over twenty singles, ten full length LPs, and a handful of EPs. The singles often contained unreleased tracks that are among the New Bomb Turks’ fan favorites.

As of 2005, the New Bomb Turks have slowed down their touring and recording in order to pursue other interests. If you’re lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, you can still catch a live show.

    I not only agree w/ substance x completely but go one step further & say Destroy Oh Boy is hands down the greatest Rock n Roll album ever recorded! If u don't agree I challenge u to come up w/ an album that comes even close to rocking that hard.

    Most awesome band on the garage scene. Very similar in sound to Japanese icons Teengenerate. I've been listening to 'Destroy Oh Boy' since the 90s and I still listen to it today. Very few bands make good albums like these

    The lead singer just wrote a book about the garage punk scene which is worth checking out: http://www.weneverlearnbook.com/

    "Destroy-Oh-Boy" is one of those rare albums that I've heard a few thousand times but still get excited over. Best punk rock record of the 90s.
