San Pedro’s all-girl trio Bombon drag surf from the shoreline to the subterranean punk underworld—this is fast, fun, nasty rock & roll, just like the kind the 5-6-7-8s or the Trashwomen rode to international fame. The oceans the girls in Bombon must be thinking of are filled with sharks and shipwrecks, and the rhythm of the tide doesn’t kick in until someone shouts out a Dee Dee Ramone-style “1-2-3-4!” Recent full-length Las Chicas Del Bombon (on local label 45 RPM) will surely trade for big bucks in several years, and in 2020, you’ll be able to spot it alongside the Pandoras’ LP on the last surviving record store’s wall-of-expensive-and-awesome-fame. Get into this now or go fish later!
