Bomp! Records is an American indie label, featuring punk, pop, powerpop, garage rock, new wave, old school rock, neo-psychedelia and much more. Since 1974 Bomp! has included such artists as The Modern Lovers, Iggy & The Stooges, Stiv Bators & The Dead Boys, 20/20, Shoes, Devo, The Romantics, DMZ, The Zeros, The Weirdos, Spacemen 3, The Germs, Jeff Dahl, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Warlocks, Black Lips, Les Hell on Heels, The Telescopes, The Coffin Lids, and too many more to mention. On Tuesday, October 19th, 2004 Bomp records’ founder, Greg Shaw, died from heart failure at the age of 55. Bomp! Records is currently headed by his ex-wife and life long partner Suzy Shaw. In 2007 Ammo Books published Bomp: Saving The World One Record At A Time (by Suzy Shaw and Mick Farren), and in 2009 Bomp! and Ugly Things published a follow-up, BOMP2-Born In The Garage, edited by Suzy Shaw and Mike Stax.
“I challenge you to find a dude cooler than Greg Shaw. In the early 70s he launched the finest music publication of all time, Who Put the Bomp (or just Bomp!), where he waxed lyrical about 60s garage, British beat, and later on, punk and powerpop. The magazine also featured writing by such esteemed pop culture writers as Lester Bangs, Ken Barnes, and Richard Meltzer. In the mid-70s, Shaw, who was now also the Flamin’ Groovies manager, launched a label of the same name, which became instrumental to the rise of powerpop and punk with releases by Devo, Iggy Pop, Weirdos, Boyfriends, Zeros, and Stiv Bators.
