Oingo Boingo Biography

Last updated: 04/11/2013 01:31:44 PM

Led by the wide-ranging musical talent of Danny Elfman (who would go on to score film and TV projects from Batman to The Simpsons), Los Angeles's Oingo Boingo carved out a respectable reputation among the new wave set with a quirky pop style that owed a heavy debt to bands like XTC. In 1994, Oingo Boingo reemerged as Boingo, releasing a new album that didn't attract much attention; the self-explanatory Farewell followed two years later.
