A while back, THWOMP embarked on an experimental journey of self discovery and experimentation. There comes a time in a band’s life when you start to question things like, is it just the fact that we play through awesome amps with awesome distortion that makes us awesome? Is it just the fact that The Party kicks the eff out of his drumkit that we kick the eff out of the audience? It’s only natural to question these things. But here’s the thing that separates THWOMP from everybody else. We went a step further.
What if we didn’t plug anything in (except keyboards) (and microphones)? What if we only had a snare drum and a suitcase for a bass drum (and a tambourine)?
And lo, the heavens did openth up, and providedeth us with acoustic guitars. And only a kitchen in which to realize this holy vision. Here are the results, which we appropriately dubbed “thwimp”. This is the theme from Double Dragon II, which also appears (un-un-plugged) on our upcoming full-length LP.
