"The slogan “Punk is dead” is nothing more than a cop-out. Tommy and the Commies — from Sudbury, Ontario, CA — prove that the genre is timeless. The trio unleashes a time-warp of blistering, classic punk rock on their 8-song debut album Here Come Tommy and the Commies. Prior to forming, Jeff Houle was the mastermind behind garage punk band Strange Attractor. The trio’s frontman, Tommy Commy, convinced Houle to start a band by dragging him into a bathroom stall during a punk show and playing some demo recordings.

Here Come Tommy and the Commies is packed with prolific hooks and 77-era punk swagger. The opening track “Devices” needs no introduction. The trio jumps in feet first with simple, raw, and catchy hooks. “Permanent Fixture” and “Suckin’ In Your 20’s” comprise of potent, repeat melodies — yet the songs are short enough not to become tedious." - Dillon Price via soundrenaissance.net
