  The Tommys - The Tommys CD
By Blackpool Rox II (Editor) Issue 9 (2004) submitted

Slick press pack from Paul at Playground Studios from the land of the railways eulogizing about this 4 piece female outfit, Jess, Stevie, Tania and Fran. There is some local Blackpool interest as the father of vocalist Jess drummed for local outfit The Fits for a period in the early 80’s. His son also scored the winner in a semi final against Foxhall U’10’s when I was reffing it – good finish Jean Paul, can your sister’s band finish as well ? According to the press release The Tommys are apparently on the brink of great things, and ‘tearing up’ venues across the North West – well let’s see if the 4 track offering warrants such great praise. Track 1 ‘Set it Off’ is very average, quite poor really. Track 2 ‘The Day the World Turned Chav’ is however a lot better – more Donnas’esque – with a good moving chorus that leaps replete with neat licks about the listening space, very good, I do like this one. Track 3 ‘Seventeen’ is again ok, quite edgy and catchy. Track 4 ‘Did it Again’ is slower with a sweet acoustic intro / build up which interweaves with a rousing chorus, quite a versatile track really – once again pretty good. A modern day Elastica for post-post-modernity .. maybe ? Avoid entanglement with Damon Albarn at all times if possible ! Pictures of pouting, angsty teenagers are suitable for the machine, so with the right backing they will probably get signed and appear on Soccer AM or something, as long as they don’t do anything too controversial (7/10) www.
