THWOMP

From their humble beginnings as grumpy ceiling-dwellers, waiting for their big break to drop and crush passing heroes, THWOMP have rocked the airwaves with the sounds of video game nostalgia. Drawing on influences from the golden age of console gaming, from composers such as Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy), Koji Kondo (Super Mario Bros), Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger), Yumiko Kanki (F-Zero) and others, THWOMP speak to the inner child of a generation of gamers.

You probably know the music but you've never heard nor seen it like this. Cranked at 115 decibels through screaming amps with even screaminger guitar solos, it's 16 bits of sonic bliss. It doesn't stop there: THWOMP are known to wear eccentric costumes, evoking everything from mad scientists in lab coats to sword-wielding heroes. The audience joins in the fun too: gamers in the audience are often invited to play the very games THWOMP is rocking out on vintage consoles on-stage.
