Album Review

Destroy-Oh-Boy! is the kind of full-on flamethrower album that could make the most jaded cynic believe once again in the curative powers of punk rock. On this set, the New Bomb Turks combine 1950s and 1960s roots rock at it's rawest, '70s punk at it's snottiest, and '80s hardcore at it's most intense. Then they filter out what's lame, put the good stuff together, and send it down the track at 150 miles per hour. The results are wild, frantic, and thoroughly enjoyable; Jim Weber's fuzzy guitar communicates nearly as much through the power of downstroke as Johnny Ramone himself, bassist Matt Reber, and drummer Bill Randt push the horsepower into the red with a fury that is a wonder to behold, and Eric Davidson proves he's one of the great frontmen of 90s punk: smart, funny, wise-ass when he wants to be, and possessing a genuine sense of purpose. From the moment they crash into "Born Toulouse-Lautrec," the New Bomb Turks grab your ears and won't let go, and you won't mind a bit. Points added for a great garage-style cover of Wire's "Mr. Suit."

Customer Reviews


I cant believe no one has reviewed this. I got this record in high school and it has been one of my favorites since. It just rocks and the Wire cover of Mr. Suit is great I almost like it more than the original.

One black eye and a bloody nose.

These Columbus, Ohio troublemakers from the early 90s created a punk/hardcore masterpiece with their debut Destroy Oh Boy! It makes you wish this was the band
playing in the basement at the cool kid’s high school house party, at least until they drank all your beer and started making out with your girlfriends. From the get-go the distortion pedal gets smashed to the floor and never lets off. It’s just one snarling scorcher after another, with a sincere nod to proto-punk masters Wire with a cover of Mr. Suit smack dab in the middle. The mystery of playing punk music ended a long time ago when it got painfully popular, right around the time this record was being recorded. But NBT stayed in their fast lane and created some great records despite the encroaching very non-punk sounds from their contemporaries. If you were lucky enough to see them live you saw the energy and insane antics of frontman Eric Davidson. Their discography is dotted with great covers including Summer Romance (Rolling Stones), Bad Girl (New York Dolls), and Good On Ya’ Baby (X - Australia).

Top fuel punk rock funny car...

...blasts off the starting line sounding like some gigantic metallic mutant insect of God. Start with their better than Wire cover of Wire's classic Mr Suit. Mosey over and cuddle up with Born To Lose Latrec. Then take a wander around inside your mind stopping to smell and admire NBT's mastery of the Jazz rock fusion sub genre. Are you scraping the crust off the bottom of your imagination yet?This band owns the loud fast rules ethos so buy this and crank it with the windows down dummies. I watched these maniacs open for and make The Supersuckers look tame back when Supersuckers were at the height of their powers out supporting La Mano Cornuda. NBT's made it look easy and that took work.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Four guys holding English degrees from Ohio State University, the New Bomb Turks have been declared as leaders in the punk rock revolution by spiked-haired, hardcore punkers everywhere. They are not pop-punk, but ferociously aggressive and fast, borrowing from the Pagans, Dead Boys, and so on. The band's name comes from Robert Wuhl's character in an early-'80s B movie, The Hollywood Nights, which also marked the film debuts of Tony Danza and Michelle Pfeiffer. Their landmark debut, Destroy Oh Boy!,...
