B.B. BOMB

B. B. Bomb started out in 2003 playing in the Taichung punk scene as a trio with an on-and-off drummer. Lead singer Fu Fu and bass player Kim made up the core of the group sharing influence from the riot grrl movement and Japanese street punk bands like Thug Murder. When the all-girl Japanese pop punk band Akiakane came for their annual appearance at an Say Yes to Taiwan concert, B.B. Bomb passed of a demo CD which was well received. Consequently, Akiakane's label Einstein Records released their first EP and also included them on a pan Asian compilation entitled Samurai Spirits. A domestic EP soon followed on the Taiwanese indie label Gamaa Music. However, the girls split up shortly after changing styles from their poppy street punk to more artsy dance rock. Kim went on to join The Hand Knife Club while Fu Fu has reformed B.B. Bomb picking up where they left off.

B.B. Bomb became popular for mixing their angsty riot grrl themes and affection for street punk with a little of the local pop punk sound their peers in bands like Semi-con and DGS had adopted. During their shows, the reed-thin Kim held the bass with a fierce authority and Fu Fu typically with a large green bottle of Taiwan Beer in hand, spoke well to the audience. Luckily, the girls got to play with members of their favorite band Thug Murder when Ryo and Chisato came on separate tours with their new bands Last Target and The Vickers, respectively. Also, B.B. Bomb supported Akiakane several times when they came to play Say Yes to Taiwan. Aside from playing yearly festivals like Spring Scream and Formoz, B.B. Bomb also toured in China, Hong Kong and South East Asia making friends with numerous punks along the way. Although Kim now plays with The Hand Knife Club, Fu Fu has reformed the group which returned to the stage in mid 2008.
