LUGER BOA is the brainchild of Jimmy Christmas and the result of a multitude of strange influences and experiences touring Europe, Japan, Australia & The USA as singer/guitarist with NZ garage rock heroes the D4, who wowed audiences at all the major festivals, appeared on major US TV shows Letterman & Jimmy Kimmel Live, and sold in excess of 100,000 albums. The D4 achieved massive success, released 2 albums and became legendary for their incendiary live shows before going on ‘hiatus’ in 2006.
2009 saw the formation of LUGER BOA and the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Mutate Or Die’, which catapulted the band into the public eye with an album and outfit described as ‘ a glam version of the Hives with a dash of T-Rex’ . The album spawned the hit singles ‘What Is Real?’, ‘I Wanna Girlfriend’ and the Rock radio single of the Year, ‘On My Mind’. The band toured relentlessly, sharing the stage with the likes of Shihad, The Mint Chicks, Airbourne, The Living End, and HLAH, as well as playing as main support for international heavyweights The Kings Of Leon. 2010 saw them headline the hugely successful ‘State Of Rock Tour’ and return to the studio to create a new album described as “12 deliciously twisted tales from the concrete jungle”.
