One of the positive effects of the Seagrams/Polygram merger is that several bands who had recorded for different labels--A&M and MCA in this case--during their careers, were able to release comprehensive career compilations now that one company controlled all of their master tapes. ANTHOLOGY is the first comprehensive Oingo Boingo compilation, and it makes the previous single-label efforts, SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET and BEST O' BOINGO, redundant.
Anthology includes previously unreleased tracks, remixes and live performances alongside well-known Oingo Boingo gems like "Ain't This the Life," "Private Lives," and "Where Do All My Friends Go." With a handful of tracks from Danny Elfman's 1984 solo album, this excellent two-disc set redefines Oingo Boingo for those who knew them only as "the new wave band Danny Elfman was in before he became a soundtrack composer."
Artist Overview
Oingo Boingo began in 1972 as the Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo, a cabaret-influenced musical theater troupe. In 1980 they pared down to an octet and changed their sound to reflect new wave, ska, post-punk, and world music elements. Their eponymous EP spawned the hit single "Only a Lad," and a full-length by that name appeared in 1981. The hit "Nothing Bad Ever Happens to Me," from 1983's GOOD FOR YOUR SOUL, continued the band's winning streak, as did 1985's DEAD MAN'S PARTY. Songs from the album appeared in several films, including WEIRD SCIENCE and BACK TO SCHOOL. Four less successful album followed, including BOINGO, which featured a more guitar-driven sound. Around this time, original member Danny Elfman left to pursue a successful career in film composing. Oingo Boingo disbanded in 1996.
