The Bomboras-It came from pier 13!

Photobucket

Southern California's Bomboras played heavy surf punk with lyrics that were oftentimes about horror and sci-fi topics. Most of their album covers were cool and this is one of my favorites because it is of course designed to look like a 1950's/60's movie poster.

Angry Samoans-Yesterday started tomorrow

Photobucket

Southern California band the Angry Samoans had been churning out high powered punk rock for nearly a decade when they changed directions in 1986 with this release. It's far more of a garage rock sound, but it's really good and the rough vocals and simple approach just add to the charm of it.
Now the cover has always had me curious because the dude is wearing a pig mask on his head and he has his cereal with him, but I guess in a public place. A library? A bus station? I don't know and I am not sure if it matters or not.

Am I commiting a crime by mentioning cereal on two consecutive posts? Maybe I need to go eat breakfast.
