I seem to be drawn to bands with the word ‘Goon’ in their name. Goons of Doom are from New South Wales, Australia, and play a hybrid version of punk and surf rock. I saw online they are sometimes categorised as Horror Punk (that genre invented by The Misfits), but this sounds more like the livelier end of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s back catalogue to me. It’s pretty great anyway. Loud and energetic – pretty much the way I like it.
This is the first track from an upcoming album Black Skull Bong (great name) due out early this year. So keep an eye open for that one.
