Fronted by Australian pro-surfer, musician, artist and film-maker Ozzie Wright aka ""Fang Fite Ozzie Wrong, The Wizard of Death"", The Story of Dead Barbie & Ghost is produced by Ian Pritchett. The album features 16 tracks each as varied as the band members themselves. With songs ranging from surf punk to hard thrashing horror pop anthems to lonely mellow beatnik poems to uplifting neon folk. The only way to explain this music is Sonic Youth with a spoonful of surf-punk.

The Goons of Doom are: Ozzie Wright, Bang-Bang-Bunny-Fang, Cut-throat Cowboy, Vaughan Dead, and Killa Whale. A group of friends, The Goons formed their band in 2003 while playing the part of a band in the indie cult surf movie classic Doped Youth. Within five days of buying instruments and practicing, the band was taking from the screen to the street, playing their first party.

After filming of Doped Youth ended, The Goons decided to continue to be a real band and started consistently playing parties and bar shows before landing a proper tour with fellow Aussies, The Beautiful Girls. In the fall of 2005, the Goons of Doom released their first EP, Bikey Zomby, which debuted at number 18 on the Australian Independent Recording charts and have since toured the US with the Aquabats and label mates Valient Thorr and ASG.

""Dead Barbie and Ghost"" has a great sense of humor in lyrics with surf-punk music underneath it all. ""My Song"" seems to have Sonic Youth influences, and is probably my favorite track on the album—totally off key vocals with doped guitars makes for great sound.
