The Navahodads were a roots rock band from Sydney, Australia. They formed in 1995 and disbanded in 2003. The band was led by singer,songwriter & guitarist B. Kibble aka "Wig" (the Alphabet Children, Flying Squad, Vampire Lovers, The Gun Club -not the US band- and the late Bam Balams who released an album, an EP & several singles on Citadel records). The Navahodads recorded two albums: "Mumbo Gumbo" & "Madame Mojo's". The band has been described as Texas R&B, swamp rock, Soul, and straight ahead rock. A critic once wrote: "Imagine Buddy Guy on a road trip, swinging by Tony Joe White's place, calling on Doug Sahm, and they all go to party in New Orleans...that's the vibe of the Navahodads." Interest generated by the "Mumbo Gumbo" album saw the band tour Spain in 1996.They split up in 2003 when B. Kibble moved to the USA. Prior to splitting up, the Navahodads recorded an album's worth of new material, which to date remains unreleased. Source
