Gama Bomb Check In From The Studio

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have posted this latest studio report on their MySpace page:


It seems like the GAMA BOMB boys have done nothing but inhale each others' farts in the car for an eternity, but we have managed to make it all the way home from deepest, darkest Suffolk at last. Thursday saw a late night of churning out killer screams, backing vocals and bass that cleared the way for two days' hardcore fret-spanking by the mighty Domo, who even demanded an extra day's time to perfect his shredology. We salute him. And ourselves.

Now that we're back in our respective dens of iniquity, it's hard to believe we've spent almost a month in the lab, stitching together such a savage monster of an album. Scurvy, alcoholic poisoning and malnutrition may have taken their toll, but by Friday morning we were still standing, bleary eyed and disbelieving as we heard the best thrash for 20 years come screaming back at us from Scott Atkins' bass woofer.

As with all the best things in life (ketchup, scabs, tortoise racing) good things will come to those who wait: there'll be no preview for a while and certainly no sly CD-Rs of this bad boy, but when 'Citizen Brain' drops we'll be ready. We've discussed how the album might be received by writers, reviewers, tastemakers and shakers a million times, but the end sum of all this work is that we don't give a shit. As long as there are thrashers out there tossing away half of their collection and replacing it with a solitary disc of 'Citizen Brain', we'll be happy. That isn't too much to ask, is it?

Here's how 'Citizen Brain' finally worked out in figures:

Tracks: 15
References to brains: TBC
Instances of profanity on album: Over 30
Times Rats: Night Of Terror watched: 12
GBP spent on alcohol: £500
Blocks of cheese: 10

We have been mostly eating: Crisps, Toast, Cheese, Bacon, Eggs, Beef, Noodles, Soap, Whatever's Handy.

Ailments / injuries accrued by bad diet / alcohol abuse / stupidity during recording: Unexplained facial wounds, allergic reactions to permanent marker 'comedy' glasses, puncture wounds to soles of feet, acne, halitosis, skits, skats, gripe, loss of sense of direction, e.coli, upsetness, brain death

GAMA BOMB - Faster Is Gooder."
