Power Pop Legends return to London 40 years after their headline set at Hammersmith Odeon.

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”
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,
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.
