BUBBLE GUMMERS sound is very inspired by bands like THE QUEERS, SCREECHING WEASEL, SHOCK TREATMENT.Lyrically they have influences by those same bands or SOCIAL DISTORTION.Powerful and melodic punk with songs about beers, girls, broken hearts, ex girlfriends, being a loser, etc.The music is very catchy and so are the chorus, Chucks voice is really good and it fits the music perfectly.In no time you find yourself singing along with him.
Oh yeah, the BUBBLE GUMMERS sing in Spanish, but they have a few covers in english they play.Like "This Magic Moment" which is included in their debut cassette or others they play usually at parties like "Mrs.Perfect Girl" by WESTON, "Punkhouse" by SCREECHING WEASEL, plus some songs by SOCIAL DISTORTION and others i cant recall cause when they play those at parties im usually drunk by then.So far the BUBBLE GUMMERS have played at a lot of parties in Monterrey,Mexico plus one in Austin,TX.They played with NY radical hardcore band HUASIPUNGO here in Monterrey.And theyre always up to play wherever.
