Boomchick’s 2010 release features 13 original tracks of indie rock, including “TGTW,” still available on video game Rock Band 3, and the title song, a nostalgic piece about Wichita’s old amusement park. Boomchick’s founding members Suzanne and Tom grew up in Wichita and are proud of their Kansas roots. The cover art is especially meaningful to them, as the talented and beloved local artist Myrna Campbell just happens to be Tom’s mom, and Suzanne’s aunt!
Here’s one review: “With the swagger of Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders and the grit of Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, (frontwoman Suzanne Benorden) leads her band as they swerve dangerously through 13 tracks of boozey, gin-soaked rock and roll. The album opens with the Rolling Stones-meets-Ramones-esque “TGTW,” a tight burst of energy that is what Boomchick does best: fuzzed out power chords, a driving backbeat and a killer chorus that explodes into a screaming wall of guitars and harmony.””- William Kennedy, Eugene Weekly (Nov, 2010)
