Tommy and The Rockets - "Beer And Fun And Rock 'n' Roll"

"Beer And Fun And Rock 'n' Roll" is the debut release of Tommy And The Rockets. Behind this moniker, you find veteran Danish multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Thomas Stubgaard. The man has teamed up with New Trocaderos' songwriter/producer Michael Chaney and some other usual suspects from The Connection /
The New Trocaderos galaxy (Brad Marino, our main man Geoff Palmer and Kris "Fingers" Rodgers, to name a few).

Last fall, Stubgaard found himself with a stash of great, melodic hooks and contacted Chaney out of the blue to ask that they write a song together. Chaney loved the melodies, and within days "Take My Advice" and "Beer and Fun and Rock 'n' Roll" had been written. Those songs quickly led to others and before long, the ten original rockers that make up this album were recorded. Brad Marino heard the demos and agreed to play drums. Geoff Palmer jumped in to engineer the recording of the drums and percussion. Final musical touches were added by keyboard master Kris "Fingers" Rodgers and the album was mixed at Friar Park East by Geoff Palmer. 

This team work resulted in 10 amazing original kick ass rock'n'rollers that should please to every fan of the Ramones driving beats, the Beach Boys incredible harmonies or Psychotic Youth sense of melody. All killers and no fillers, this album rocks from start to finish and will certainly be in the top ten of the best rock'n'roll records of 2016! Do yourself a favour and get a copy!!!

"Beer And Fun And Rock 'n' Roll" is available in cd, vinyl or digital download.
