Label: Self Released
Review by Alan Holloway

Okay, this was never going to be pretty. Four tracks, including the charming “Fucked By Rock & Roll” and a cover of Def Leppard’s “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad”, winding their way from Canada via a band who know exactly how to make people sit up when they hear their name.

TATDR are not a subtle band, you won’t be surprised to hear. I was expecting a heavy dose of sleaze rock and that’s pretty much what they do, although with a metal edge. The music is very, very basic low down rock & roll with hints of 70s punk thrown in, and although there’s some fun to be had it’s all rather tiresome after a couple of listens. They seem like a band who are doing all they can to be offensive and sweary, without having bothered to make some songs that will stick in your head and make you want to share this wonderful new band. Thunderfuck himself has a guttural vocal style that adds little to the songs, and is a big factor as to why their Def Leppard cover sucks more balls than a ball sucking machine.

So have a giggle at the name if you like, but steer well clear of this.
