Gomer Pyle is a Psychedelic Stoner Rock band from the Netherlands. The band was formed in the early 90s. After s break between 2011 and 2016 there are back on the road again.
The band was formed in 1994 and one year later they released their first EP "Honeybuny". In 1999, the Eurohappy CD was released, but after some bigger gigs a long silence settled in around the band. In 2006 Gomer Pyle changed the drummer and from now on Sander Evers of 35007 punched the drum kit, leading to a new era for the band. After the EP "Angelseagirl" in 2006 and the EP “GP” in 2007 (limited promo pack edition) they released their masterpiece “Idiots Savants” in 2008. It´s a kind of a Spacey – Psychedelic Stoner Rock. A great mix of Jam parts and hard-straight stoner rock. Gomer Pyle manage to create a warm and smooth sound throughout the whole album. Their last gig was in 2011, after which they suddenly cancelled some shows and their drummer Sander Evers left Gomer Pyle in February 2011.
They started again early 2016. With a new drummer and bass player. Along with releasing a new EP the band would eventually release a new studio album in 2020 entitled Before I Die I... via Greek label At The Lab Records, to critical acclaim.
