With big hitters such as ‘Beat Dis’, Bomb The Bass helped mould late 1980s acid house. Their linchpin, Tim Simenon, has led the group through a number of different incarnations, painting vivid pictures of modern culture on the albums ‘Clear’, ‘Unknown Territory’ and ‘Into The Dragon’.
More recently Bomb The Bass have settled as a duo, vocalist Paul Conboy providing lyrical complements to Simenon’s continually inventive productions. The duo have made arguably the best work under the moniker, with guests from Mark Lanegan to Fujiya & Miyagi (‘Future Chaos’), then a successful co-production with Gui Boratto (‘Back To Light’).
Simenon and Conboy return in 2013 with new single ‘Wandering Star’ and album ‘In The Sun’, both on Simenon’s new imprint O Solo Recordings, and will take their vividly inventive electro on tour.Photo by Eni Brandner
