Bang! is the third album by British group World Party, released by Ensign Records on April 26, 1993. While previous World Party albums were essentially solo projects by one-man orchestra Karl Wallinger, for this album World Party officially became a three-person group: Wallinger (vocals, keyboards, guitars, basses, et., Dave Catlin-Birch (guitars), and Chris Sharrock (drums). As well, the band is aided by a number of guest artists.
Goodbye Jumbo, World Party's second album, contained the minor UK hit singles "Way Down Now" and "Put the Message in the Box". Wallinger collaborated with fellow songwriter Guy Chambers on some of the tracks. Goodbye Jumbo was voted "album of the year" by Q magazine and was nominated for a Grammy Award for "best alternative music performance" in the US. After the 1991 EP Thank You World, Wallinger recruited guitarist David Catlin-Birch and ex-Icicle Works drummer Chris Sharrock as fully-fledged members for 1993's album Bang!.
And if you listen now You might hear a new sound coming in As an old one disappears See the world in just one grain of sand. You better take a closer look Don't let it slip right through your hand Won't you please hear the call The world says. Put the message in the box Put the box into the car Drive the car around the world Until you get heard. Now is the moment, please understand The road is wide open to the heart of every man A few simple words So a mule could understand. He don't want tomorrow If it's just crumbling into sand Won't please hear the call She says. Give a little bit Give a little bit of your soul to me 'Cause I'm waiting to behold your many charms Is that love in the air? She says. Until you get heard Until you get heard Until you get heard Until you get heard. Noch keine Übersetzung vorhanden.
Like his debut, World Party’s 1990’s sophomore album Goodbye Jumbo featured singer Sinéad O’Connor, and highlights the musician’s candid songwriting. Yielding the hits Way Down Now and Put the Message in the Box, the album was nominated for the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Performance and was voted Q Magazine’s album of the year. Following the release of the EP Thank You World featuring the Beatles cover Happiness Is a Warm Gun, Wallinger enlisted the services of guritaitst David Catlin-Birch and drummer Chirs Sharrock to craft his third studio album.

Wallinger switches to keyboard early on for She's the One, the 1997 World Party album track turned into a national anthem by Robbie Williams, but draws much of the set from their 1990 high-watermark album, Goodbye Jumbo. The environmentalist concerns of Put the Message in the Box and Is It Too Late are set to retro stylings, yet betray a band that were presciently ahead of their time.
