Booji Boys - Dream Of Booji
With their Devo inspired name you'd think Booji Boys might have a sound that's slightly quirky and you'd be right. Basically they're purveyors of catchy garage / pop punk tunes but thanks to the raw recording they sound a little other worldly. Some of you may be put off by this, others will fall in love.
From Halifax, Nova Scotia and featuring members from bands such as Fragment, Grump, Negative Rage, Science Project & Alienation, they've been picking up plenty of comparisons with a couple of other bands that've featured on this blog, Coneheads and Liquids. They've previously released a demo tape, a practice tape and a promo tape and now they're unleashing their debut self titled album. If you're quick, you might be able to pick up vinyl copies from Drunken Sailor ( http://www.drunkensailorrecords.co.uk/products/585950-booji-boys-st-lp-drunken-sailor-records-drunkensailor-066 ), otherwise you can get the digital download (along with the earlier releases) "name your price" here... https://boojiboysfuneral.bandcamp.com/
This song illustrates pretty much what they're all about, a killer pop hook, a garage back beat and a wave of distortion, this is Dream Of Booji....
