Sonic Boom Boy

Westworld is a British three-piece band aktive in the late 80s. Named after the sci-fi film, Westworld (in which Yul Brynner appeared as a robot in a funpark going mad), they were formed in 1986 by the former Generation X guitarist Bob Andrews, and American vocalist Elizabeth Westwood. The line up was completed by drummer Nick Burton.

Musically they were a blend of classic 1950s rock and roll with twanging guitars, glam an punk, updated with beatboxes  and sequenzer. They had an early success with their debut single, “Sonic Boom Boy”, which reached #11 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1987.
Not that it is real great song but still it feels good to hear it again. Reminds me a little bit at Sigue Sigue Sputnik. I think about what a good remix could be made from this song.
Half of the working week is nearly over – so keep looking forward to Friday.
Cheers, Walter
