about

REVIEWS:
"I love the feel of this EP; really upbeat with a total feel-good spirit. The band's best yet. This is what timeless rock 'n' roll is all about!. It's THE summertime record of 2017!" - Lord Rutledge - 3/13/17

"These songs are fantastic! Great performances, harmonies--the works! Tommy and the Rockets' 'Rock 'n' Roll Wrecking Machine' channels Ramones, Dave Edmunds and Beach Boys fury for a beat-driven collection of four-on-the-floor classics. Gear up for a great ride!" Alan Haber, PurePopRadio - 3/13/17

PREVIOUS PRAISE:
"This shit rawks!!" - Ed Stasium (producer/engineer The Ramones, The Smithereens, The Talking Heads, Mick Jagger)

"[M]elodic sunshine seamlessly melding The Ramones, The Beach Boys and bubblegum. Play it loud!" - John M. Borack, Goldmine Magazine

"Tommy And The Rockets play r-r-r-real Rock & Roll!" - Bill Kelly, Little Steven's Underground Garage & WFMU Radio

"These songs pack a wallop of power into a compact two to three-and-a-half minute running time, each kicking ass from the very first note to the final measure. The most evident influence throughout is ... early-60s surf and pre-psych garage rock ... with nods to Buddy Holly, 70s rock ‘n’ rollers like Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, and of course The Ramones. Any of the great tracks here ... could have easily topped the AM charts back in ‘65." - Peter Thelen, Expose.org

"[T]he songs are...the essence of the Beach Boys, Rockpile and The Ramones all rolled into one." - Richard Rossi, Powerpopnews.com

Track Name: Rock 'n' Roll Wrecking Machine
ROCK 'N' ROLL WRECKING MACHINE

(V1)
Crank up the bass riffs,
Bounce me through the wall,
Let's blow the roof off,
Trash this union hall,
Twelve hundred crazy kids,
Are feelin’ lean and mean,
Punk music-powered mob,
A rock 'n' roll wrecking machine,

(Chorus)
We're a rock 'n' roll wrecking machine,
(Rock 'n' roll wrecking machine)
A rock 'n' roll wrecking machine,
(Rock 'n' roll wrecking machine)
We’re a rock 'n' roll wrecking machine,
Let’s tear it up,

(Solo)

(V2)
Don’t pull the plug yet,
Sing another song,
Don’t end the show now,
Play it all night long,
We got the cops outnumbered,
To keep 'em off the stage,
Don't care if they haul us out,
And put us in a cage,

(Chorus)

(Repeat V1)

(Chorus x2)

(Deet deet deet deet)
Let's tear it up,
(Deet deet deet deet)
Let's tear it up,
(Deet deet deet deet)
Let's tear it up,
(Deet deet deet deet)
Let's tear it u-u-u-u-up,
Track Name: Hey Daisy
HEY DAISY

(V1)
Hey Daisy, oh, Daisy,
Saw ya struttin' around,
Hey Daisy, oh, Daisy,
You're the talk of the town,

(V2)
I saw ya, checkin’ me out,
Know ya know my name,
Don't tease me, I'm easy,
Time to stop playin' games,

(Chorus)
True love has, been found,
Don't run me, around,
I'm here, right now,
I think it's time our deal went down,

(V3)
Hey Daisy, oh Daisy,
I’m hard to resist,
Hey Daisy, oh Daisy,
Wontcha gimme a kiss,

(V4)
You're saucy, so sassy,
Now I'm writin' bad checks,
To buy you, French cognac,
I'm a total wreck,

(Chorus)

(Solo)

(Outro)
True love has, been found,
Don't run, me around,
Hey Daisy, you’re the one,
Don’t come, undone,
True love has, been found,
Don't run, me around,
Hey Daisy, you’re the one,
Hey, Daisy, oh, Da-Da-Da-Da-Daisy
Track Name: Get Ready
GET READY

(V1)
Friday night ’n I’m rarin’ to go,
Gotta get down to the bar,
If you’re not dressed, girl, I’m not waitin’,
Gimme the keys to the car,

(Chorus)
Get get, better get ready,
Get get, better get ready,
Get get, better get ready,
Ready to rock 'n' roll,

(V2)
Worked double shifts, all week long,
Now it's time to cut loose,
Bud on tap, lotsa Jack,
Hope I don't puke on my shoes,

(Chorus)

(Solo)

(Chorus)

(V3)
New Trocs, playin' on the jukebox,
Crazy Little Fool,
We’re drunk, singin' with the music,
No more cryin’ the blues,

(Chorus)
Track Name: Gonna Be Alright
GONNA BE ALRIGHT

(V1)
I been up, I been down,
I been batted around,
I been high, I been low,
I got nowhere to go,

(V2)
You’re a lost little boy,
I’m a strong little girl,
Hold ya close through the night,
Gonna change your world,

(Chorus)
Cause now we’ve found that broken pieces,
Fit together tight,
Lose ourselves in long embraces,
Everything’s gonna be alright,

(Solo)

(Bridge)
Oh, lucky me,
Got my own, little honeybee,

(V3)
Can’t thank you enough,
Tender hearted but tough,
Pulled me out of the dark,
With the firm hand of love,


(V4)
Saw you needed my help,
Got a love for myself,
Now we're stronger again,
Deep in love till the end,

(Chorus x 2)
