Goons of Doom is a band often described as surf rock, rock, and horror punk. Formed in 2004 in Narrabeen, New South Wales, the group consists of members Ozzy Wrong (the stage name of professional surfer, Ozzie Wright a.k.a. Oscar Wright), "Cutthroat Cowboy" (Ryan Cowell), "Killa Whale" (Timothy Cooney), "Ray of Sunshine" (Tuifao Lalotoa) and "Vaughn Dead" (Adam Blakey).

Formed without any of its members mastering their instruments prior to their first show, Goons of Doom recorded a rudimentary debut album, Bikey Zomby (EP, 2005). This first official release from their record label Volcom Entertainment, was met with humble praise and mixed enthusiasm. The following album, "The Story of Dead Barbie And Ghost" (LP, 2006), was met with higher acclaim (Hybrid Magazine[1]). Goons of Doom is known for delivering high energy live performances[2] and has since maintained a passionate fan base. The band is set to release a new album in 2012.
