The New Bomb Turks are an American punk rock band formed at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio in 1990. The founding members are Jim Weber, Eric Davidson, Bill Randt, and Matt Reber. Sam Brown replaced Bill Randt on drums in 1999. Early on their inspiration came from the Devil Dogs, Lazy Cowgirls, Union Carbide Productions, Didjits, and the Fluid. Music magazine ''Alternative Press'' has described their musical style, saying, "Not only have both prole-threat punk bashery and destructo-rock found fresh voices, they've been melded into a seamless new terror all its own." The New Bomb Turks have released ten full-length LPs, two EPs, and over twenty singles, some of which contain songs not available elsewhere. Their early recordings appear on the Datapanik, Sympathy For The Record Industry, Get Hip and Bag of Hammers labels. Crypt Records signed the band and released ''!!Destroy-Oh-Boy!!'', ''Information Highway Revisited'', and ''Pissing Out The Poison''. Then Epitaph Records signed them and released LPs ''Scared Straight'', ''At Rope's End'' and ''Nightmare Scenario''. Gearhead Records released their next album, ''The Night Before the Day the Earth Stood Still''. The band also released three b-side and outtakes compilations: ''Pissing Out the Poison'', ''The Big Combo'', and ''Switchblade Tongues & Butterknife Brains''. As of 2005, the New Bomb Turks have slowed down their touring and recording in order to pursue other interests. Guitarist Jim Weber, for example, is now a 10th and 11th grade English teacher at Hilliard Davidson High School while Eric Davidson is also the singer in Livids since forming the band w/ others in Brooklyn, NY in early 2011. The band's name refers to the main character (Newbomb Turk) in the 1980 film ''The Hollywood Knights'', played by Robert Wuhl.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
