BAMBIES are a trio hailing from Montreal, Quebec in Canada. They are a trilingual, tri-national (Canada,France, Costa Rica) band influenced by 70s punk and powerpop. “Dirty Taint” takes us into the heart of the action with lots of youthful energy and a garage punk production. Songs like “Summer Soon” or “Stuck With You” stand somewhere the RAMONES and the EXPLODING HEARTS, and “Echo” and “Party” have a bit of NEW YORK DOLLS and BRIEFS thrown into them. The ’77 punk/powerpop influence can especially be heard in “Teen Engine” and in “Go Gore Boy” although a song like “Human Sake” has a big garage vibe. “Running Through The Night” is a well-crafted punk rock song and “RNR With You” offers us some crazy speed freak rock’n’roll moments. The vocals get a bit more melodic in the last song, “Moonies” and then you realize it’s already over. 12 songs you’ll love if you’re into 77 punk with a powerpop approach. /Laurent C.
