Louis Lingg and the Bombs is an insane anarcho pop band with no limits - formed in the summer of 2006.
Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. The bombs they throw are musical, they come from Paris (they could only come from Paris!) and they'll grab you and demand your instant attention.

Their sound is a mix of ultra-political anarchic punk rock and fizzing children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. Laced with so much energy and a whole sonic attack of chaos and fizzy energy, they throw a crazy live party. They could start a riot in a phone box and regularly blow up little bars with pop Molotovs and bang bang boom boom punk rock energy!

Great punk fusion album that does not linger in the past. This album is definitely modern both musically and in the themes of the lyrics.
I must have listened to it close to a hundred times, it has even bested Die Antwoord's $O$ as my six years old daughter's favorite.
It is energetic, modern and still true to its roots.
WE WANT MORE!
It is good stuff. Wild, rough and high-energy, and some seriously good punk. I'm not an easy person to impress with punk. I played it myself from the late 70s into the 90s. But this.. This is good. VERY good.
10 stars, but that isn't really enough.
Con questo disco il gruppo dimostra di avere sempre più qualcosa da dire ed una grande vena compositiv a disposizione per farlo.
Pezzi come "Am stam gram", "Ls Menteuse", "Jiggy Baby" sono veloci e ballabilissimi, ma la palma per il brano migliore spetta a "Princess Mononoke". Punk fino al midollo ma con un linguaggio tutto loro. Bello il colosso di "Death in the Haymarket" con il suo parlato ed il sottofondo molto suggestivo.
