Bazoomis- White Washed Kids CD. Bazoomis is not a name that most punk collectors are familiar with unless you were on the UK punk scene back in 1977. These guys were the real deal and they lived on the edge like everyday was their last. Their band name is a russian word that translates to Madness and they played all the usual punk venues back in the day like the Roxy Club, the Vortex, Ronnie Scott's and the Marquee. The band first got together when they met in August of ‘76 at a legendary gig that included the Sex Pistols, The Clash and the Buzzcocks. The audience was made up of future punk musicians including the soon to be Bazoomis, as shortly after that gig the 5 members discussed starting this group and began writing songs! The collection of songs on ‘White Washed Kids’ are all studio recordings that have been salvaged from many old cassettes that the bands members still had in their posession. 17 tracks in all that remind me alot of classic first-wave, bouncy punk bands like the Boys, the Buzzcocks, the Undertones, Johnny Moped and the Clash. Import from the UK.
