Tsunami Bomb
Tsunami Bomb
Melodic Punk Rock band from Petaluma, California, the band was formed in 1999 by Bassist, Dominic Davi, and originally had five members before cutting the line-up down to four when their keyboardist, Oobliette Sparks, left the band in 2001. In 2003, their founding member and songwriter, Dominic Davi, was asked to leave the band and was replaced by Matt McKenzie. Guitarist Mike Griffen in the band since 2000, also left the band in 2004 and was replaced by Jay Northington.

In Fall, 2005, the members of Tsunami Bomb have announced that they have broken up, and each have gone off to different bands.

In October of 2015, it was announced that the band would reform to support the released of an upcoming rarities collection, "Trust No One" on Kung Fu Records. The line-up would feature the return of much of the original and early line up, consisting of Bassist Dominic Davi, Vocalist/Keyboardist Oobliette Sparks, Guitarist Brian Plink, and Drummer Gabriel Lindeman along with a new vocalist, Kate Jacobi.
In the spring of 2014, five friends got together in a grimy practice space in Boston to see what would happen. They all had long, diverse rock and roll pedigrees and their record collections were no different. They had no idea what they would do, only what they didn't want to do— anything they had already done before. The sound that developed was not rockabilly. It was not punk rock. It wasn't garage, soul, gothic southern swamp darkness, or straight mid-century American rock and roll…it was all those things. It was the echo of the record collections, the artists, and the aesthetics that they loved.

Last summer found Diablogato at Watch City Studios in Waltham, Mass. The tracks were laid down and made the old fashioned way...on vintage analog gear, straight to the tape with moments of brilliance, inspiration, rough edges, and wonderful mistakes all given the same respect. Released in early 2016, the self-titled debut album is a snapshot of where the band was at that time, a storybook of chapters showcasing the music that they love. The language these five friends had learned to speak as one onstage became clear on that album.

Heading into 2017, Diablogato is hard at work writing songs for a new 7” and full length record, continuing to hit the stage, feeling sanctified pouring it out, and wandering wherever their rock and roll love affair takes them. With Drew on vocals and guitar, Johnny on upright bass, Jesse on drums, Kim on baritone sax, and Charlie on lead guitar Diablogato rumbles down that road fueled by gasoline, larceny, and lust, you are more than welcome to come along for the ride.
