On their debut album, Tommy and the Commies race from the traps with that spitting punk pop sound first seen on The Buzzcocks’ Spiral Scratch, on The Undertones’ Teenage Kicks. It’s a fine eight-track blast back to two minute wonders that flit in full of harmony and melody over chugging and ringing guitars that drive the songs forcefully and infectiously along. Here Come Tommy and The Commies is a fantastic introduction to a band that are embracing that original punk sound and spirit. Never mind the bollocks, here’s another fine example of why punk’s far from dead.
