Was originally the brainchild of rythm guitarist Wanjah, bored and sick and tired of the routine droll and generic pop music on the radio, finally deciding to kick some radio butt. He quickly hooked up with Bau's main songwriter Ash in the hopes of making his songs sound as mean as they can.

Ash quickly thereafter sought the services of his rythm guitarist Daud, who in the space of Bau's long hiatus had become a seasoned sessionist in his own right, with Ash assigning him lead guitar duties this time round.

As time passed, the three started to brainstorm as to who would be most appropriate in filling the gap of rythm section. They finally settled on Wanjah's good buddy Bidin as their Bass player, and they also mutually agreed to seek services of Bau's drummer Ahn Jojo.

Months pass, and through mutual consent, Bidin relinquished his role as bass player, citing commitment issues as the main catalyst for him leaving. This left the remaining four in yet another dilemma of searching for a bassist. Daud originally had already aggresively campaigned for his good friend and bassist Pa' Ku, whom he had become acquainted with during his travels as a sessionist. Upon getting word of Bidin leaving, Daud immediately gave his old friend a call, and upon hearing the band's offer, Pa' Ku promptly agreed.

And so, after months of deliberation and planning, the band's lineup is finally complete. The concept of their music have evolved significantly since the band's formation, having at first planned to make the band a post-punk outfit, but over time the band decided in putting elements of synthesizers, giving out a more disco vibe to their music. Wanjah then dubbed Gabba Gabba! as a proto-punk outfit, with their namesake an homage to one of punk's pioneers and also one of their main influences, The Ramones.
