U.S. BOMBS: Tora Tora Tora: 7"

Jul 05, 2001

This seven inch convinced me to go get the new U.S. Bombs album ("Back at the Laundromat"). "Tora Tora Tora" is a true punk anthem. The Bombs opened their show with it the last time I saw them, and everyone went nuts. It's the first real evidence that our combined hatred of George W. is leading to some great punk rock. The cover has a funny picture of George W. with a Hitler mustache, and, though the song is on "Back to the Laundromat," this version has different little cool aspects in the mix. The b-side, "Yer Country," is the second piece of evidence that bad president = good punk rock. It's a hell of a seven inch. A very powerful single. Both of these songs are on the "Back to the Laundromat," but if you're unsure whether or not you want that album, this is a good way to test the waters.
