Tommy and the Rockets

Describing themselves as ‘the essence of the Beach Boys, Rockpile, and The Ramones all rolled into one’, the Danish band Tommy and the Rockets have been around since 2016. The band is named after Thomas Stubgaard who has been the sole stable member of the band since the beginning. Several split albums have been released in the past five years, plus an album of covers of songs by the Ramones, entitled ‘I Wanna Be Covered’.

In 2021 the album Scandinavian Flavour was released, featuring six tracks by Psychotic Youth and six by Tommy and the Rockets. One of the tracks was a cover version of Chequered Love by the latter.
