Toubabo Koomi

Album: When the Kite String Pops (1994)

Songfacts®:

  • Toubabo Koomi means "The Land Of The White Cannibals."
  • This is the only Acid Bath song to have a music video. It was directed by Bruce Martin, who also did videos for ZZ Top and The Melvins. The video was shot In Morgan City, which is Jimmy Kyles' hometown. It's far out in the swamps. For the video, they went out and caught some alligators. One guy got bit in the face by an alligator while they were making that video. Dax Riggs said: "A big chunk of his face... should have put that in the video." Then, he took the alligator out and killed it, which is against the law down there. >>
