GAMA BOMB - CITIZEN BRAIN STUDIO UPDATE #2
Zombies, beer and thrash...just another day in the life of Ireland's own GAMA BOMB.
The band checks in once again with another update straight from Grindstone Studios about the recording of their EARACHE debut, CITIZEN BRAIN (produced by Scott Atkins):
Dispatches From The Front Pt. 2 - Studio Report
"If making amazing albums is a crime, we're going to be sent down for life

alcohol consumption is leveling out to a steady 25 cases per week. We're
big and tough because we drink lots. Etcetera. Bass and lead, as well as the
rest of the vocals and backings, occupy the rest of our time here, as does
watching the 15 Italian trash cinema DVDs we got in the post this weekend.
