The Rubinoos on Sunday 28th October 2018
AGMP presents THE RUBINOOS + special guests: THE SURFIN' LUNGS Power Pop Legends return to London 40 years after their headline set at Hammersmith Odeon. Founded in Berkeley by Tommy Dunbar and Jon Rubin, The Rubinoos are one of the seminal power pop artists of the 1970s. In 1977 they hit the top 40 with a cover of Tommy James’ “I Think We’re Alone Now.” In 1978 they followed it with the power pop classic “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”, which was named record of the year by Music Week Magazine. In '84 The Rubinoos recorded one of their most popular songs, the title cut of the film 'Revenge of the Nerds'. Several albums, tours and decades later The Rubinoos can still crank out the pop gems. In 2007 the band was honored with the career spanning 3-CD anthology, 'Everything You Always Wanted To Know About The Rubinoos'. The Surfin' Lungs released their debut single 'Mickey's Car' in 1983. Their now legendary second single 'Pray for Sun' came out in 1985 and the band were immediately signed to Big Beat Records who released their debut album 'Cowabunga!'. The Surfin' Lungs sound is a mixture of The Monkees, The Ramones, The Beach Boys and The Barracudas.
