Mondo Bongo saw the Boomtown Rats moving firmly away from the sound of The Fine Art of Surfacing into more rhythmic waters. Led by the reggae tinged Banana Republic it showed be Rats experimenting in a way they hadn't done before. Fortunately all of the experiments paid off and the result is an enjoyable and imaginative album/5(23).

Mondo Bongo was The Boomtown Rats' fourth album. It peaked at No. 6 in the UK Albums Chart in February , and No. in the US Billboard It included the hit singles: "Banana Republic", which had reached No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart in November and "The Elephants Graveyard (Guilty)" which made No. 26 in January Genre: Rock, new wave.

"Banana Republic" was the first single from The Boomtown Rats' album Mondo Bongo. It peaked at number three in the UK Singles Chart. Breaking from the band's previous new wave sound, the song opens with a ska-reggae hook (that repeats at the close of the much longer album version). However, the song itself is a more mainstream piece musically.

On their fourth album, the Boomtown Rats submitted to ambitiousness, with singer Bob Geldof attempting to assume the mantle of Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones, while the band tried to keep up with musical fashions in combination led to such oddities as a ska-beat rewrite of the Stones' "Under My Thumb" and a couple of side-opening mambos.
