Profile:
Italian prime-mover punk band formed in 1978 in Pordenone by Ado and Willy Gibson, originally as BumPamBingTilt, changed to Tampax in Summer. They released the very first Italian punk 7" single, a split with their fellows Hitler SS, and were also among the founders of The Great Complotto, an independent record label and countercultural organization.
Broke up in the Autumn 1979, back from London where they moved in August together with Hitler SS and where both bands played the 1st September the famous 'Cartoon Concert' under the Aklam bridge in Portobello Road.
Atfer the split Ado and Gibson formed their own electronic/experimental projects, 001011011100...Cancer and Musique Mecanique, and were involved in the production of many local new wave and punk bands.
Reformed in 1984, in 1988 Tampax released their first Album, "Sorry Not Tonight", an LP featuring recordings between 1978-1986; during the 1990s, Tampax had a fan club that requested a photo of your genitals as compulsory subscription fee.
