In 1972, a young Californian visionary named Rick Elfman decided to form a circus band. The lineup soon consisted of over a dozen people, including his wife Marie-Pascale, his best friend Matthew Bright (who would go on to direct ''Film/{{Freeway}}''), a young Steve Bartek, and Rick's little brother Creator/DannyElfman, who had just returned from traveling Africa and Europe.

The band retired after a farewell concert on Halloween 1995, having reverted to the name Oingo Boingo for the concert. Bassist John Avila went on to produce ReelBigFish and is currently playing with TheMutaytor. Keyboardist Richard Gibbs got hired to score ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. Drummer Johnny "Vatos" Hernandez continued playing in various bands and had a cameo in ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn''. Guitarist Warren Fitzgerald joined TheVandals. Richard Elfman and Matthew Bright created half a dozen film projects together. And DannyElfman became a fulltime film composer, with Steve Bartek as his arranger.

In 1994, Danny Elfman suffered a breakdown and (temporarily) broke off all ties with Tim Burton. Because Danny wanted to go in a different direction, the band reshuffled its lineup, rechristened themselves Boingo, and recorded a SelfTitledAlbum which focused most on the rock and orchestral influences of the band's sound. It was partly inspired by Danny listening to his daughter's album collection, which included Music/TheBeatles, JimiHendrix and Music/LedZeppelin. Their new sound alienated many old fans and gave them plenty of new ones. But by that time, and particularly after a truly terrible gig at the KROQ Weenie Roast, the group realized that their time together was over.

* TheSixties: Both "Just Another Day" and "Dead Man's Party" evoke this - "Just Another Day" with its psychedelic imagery and wailing synthesizer, and "Dead Man's Party" with its surf-rock guitar and a pre-climactic bridge that is eerily reminiscent of [[TheDoors "Light My Fire"]].
