"Sonic Boom" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 7 in 2006.


Andy: “Noted out for the Nonsuch album in '90, I felt it was too ploddy and poor lyrically. Then whipped out again for Wasp Star with the tempo cranked and the words de-clinked I thought, yeah, that's it! Finally it's ready to be not good enough. This is what all the fuzz was about.”


Mum and Dad are at work today

Those cats are out and this mouse must play

Plug in the pedal to the small grey amp

Bring down your heel on the button stamp

Sonic boom

sonic boom

Sonic boom goes the nuclear noise from my cheap axe

Boom ripping up their slippers, pipes and slacks

Boom I'm supplying all this dead town lacks

Boom all the boring stuff they stand for quivers and cracks

Sonic boom

Well they're born old they won't understand

and they don't seem to have the noise thrill gland

Push in the jack plug to the socket ring

Hammer down the plectrum on the string and bring

Sonic boom

Sonic boom

Sonic boom goes the killer chord from my guitar

Boom with the sound of an exploding star

Boom as their universe is torn apart

Boom from the speaker in my dreaming teenage heart

Sonic boom
