BLACK MAMBAS
BLACK MAMBAS
"They have a Rolling Stones-meets-Iggy and The Stooges way about them. Very bluesy side of the Stones vibe, with an edge of garage...I'm playin "Baby I'll Give It You," "Bulldog," and "Teenage Letter." - Rodney Bingenheimer to L.A Weekly

"...the Mambas stagger into 1976 with gutter-glam songs and dawn-of-punk velocity and attitude. Like the New York Dolls, you ask? Oh mais oui, as the Dolls' singer David Johansen must have once bellowed, but there's lots of Redd Kross and Real Kids roaring alongside, too. (The Mambas' "Teenage Letter" cover is just a few burst blood vessels away from the Count Bishops' bruising 1975 version.) L.A.'s 1980s glam punk legends The Joneses remain the once and future kings of this sound, but the Mambas are young and hungry. Well, actually, that probably should be "thirsty," at least judging by the way they smash out these shot-of-whiskey hits." - Chris Ziegler, LA Weekly
Poison Boys
American punk band from Chicago, IL.
