Bombay Show Pig – First EP


Bombay Show Pig – First EP
Self released – 2009
Rock, Stoner, Indie, Garage, Punk, Noise
Rated: ***


Nowadays Bombay Show Pig has been reduced to a duo because vocalist Christian Kratzsch decided to leave the band last year. But during those first years the band was known for their energetic live shows and their ability to fuse all kinds of heavy rock into some kind of hipster indie version. Which resulted in comparisons to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Death From Above 1979. And they sure do sport a massive beat and rhythm. Founded as a graduation project for the Amsterdam Conservatoire they maintain a dark and grimy attitude and use this to combine stoner riffs and grooves with a punk feel, noise influences and an indie disposition. It’s the fat that makes the taste, he said with great relish!
