Tommy And The Commies - Devices
There's been some excellent new bands featured on here who combine elements of power pop and punk rock to provide some of the most irresistibly catchy songs you could hope to hear. Just off the top of my head I can mention the likes of Los Pepes, The Number Ones, Corner Boys, TV Crime, Aerosol Burns, Radiohearts, Fashionism, First Base etc (There's plenty more, just click the power pop tag and you'll find them sprinkled in amongst a plethora of Vista Blue updates!). Today another band joins those ranks, they're from Sudbury, Ontario, they're called Tommy And The Commies and hopefully they're just beginning along a road that'll see them mentioned in the same breath as fellow Canadians Pointed Sticks and Modernettes.
Last August they unleashed their debut release, it was a self titled 4 track cassette and it's available digitally on Bandcamp. Proving that wasn't a one off, they returned earlier this month with cassette #2. Titled Tommy And The Commies ...Again, it's another sure fire winner that's eliciting gushing praise from discerning music lovers everywhere. Will they be able to live up to the hype? Do they even care? Sometimes you just get a feeling that a band have the potential to be great. See what all the fuss is about here : https://tommyandthecommies.bandcamp.com/
Keep an eye on their Facebook page to see if they can fulfil all their early promise.... https://www.facebook.com/TOMMYSCOMMIES/
