The Rubinoos
The Rubinoos
Founded in Berkeley by junior high buddies, Tommy Dunbar and Jon Rubin, The Rubinoos are one of the seminal power pop artists of the 1970s. In 1977 they hit the top 40 with a cover of Tommy James’ “I Think We’re Alone Now.” In 1978 they followed it with the power pop classic “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”, which was named record of the year by Britain’s Music Week Magazine. In '84 The Rubes recorded one of their most popular songs, the title cut of the film Revenge of the Nerds. Several albums, tours and decades later The Rubes can still crank out the pop gems. In 2007 the band was honored with the career spanning 3-CD anthology, Everything You Always Wanted To Know About The Rubinoos. In 2007 The Rubinoos dusted off their guitars and hit the road for a tour of Japan and the release of the Japan only double CD set One Two That's It. In 2009 the group returned to Spain to support the release of their album HodgePodge. 2010, The Rubinoos 40th Anniversary year, saw the group release two new albums, Automatic Toaster and the kid's CD Biff Boff Boing, tour Spain, Italy, headline the Felipop Festival in Galicia and on October 23rd celebrate their 40th Anniversay in spectacular style at the Great American Music Hall in SF. 2011: Look for The Rubinoos in Japan this February along with new recordings and more tour dates.
