Bite Me Bambi Give Go-Go’s Classic The Ska Treatment

Trumpets sound in Our Lips Are Sealed cover, giving it new life with a ska pop punk twist

Orange County, CA ska/pop/punk faves Bite Me Bambi are back with sunny, horn-inflected take on The Go Go’s classic tune Our Lips Are Sealed.

The band recently spoke about the track; “We wanted a fun summer song and have always wanted to do a Go Go’s song. We had initially planned to do the song during covid, but it got lost in the shuffle of other tunes. Terry Hall from ska legends The Specials co-wrote the song with Jane Wiedlan so we thought it would be a cool one to make into a Ska song.

As it turned out, we ended up recording it pretty close to the 40 year anniversary of the release date of the original, and the induction of the Go Go’s to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so we thought it was Kismet. That is the yearbook answer…Okay, the real answer is:…it was an awesome song to rollerskate to..”

Bite Me Bambi will headline the first annual Summer Sizzler on August 13 at the Garden Amp in Garden Grove, CA. Joining them for the all-ages event: The Scholars, Scott Klopfenstein (ex-Reel Big Fish), The Ruffolos and The Step Daughters.

Bite Me, Bambi, brings sounds reminiscent of British 2 Tone and 3rd wave ska into the 21st century. With energetic songs and masterful musicianship, BMB gets the crowd on their feet and dancing. BMB consist of members from popular ska bands such as My Superhero, Save Ferris, Starpool. Together they breathe new life to a genre that may have originated in Jamaica, and honed in Britain, but was perfected in the haze, blight, glamour, and beauty of Southern California.
