THUNDERFUCK : A lot of negative comments have been made about Thunderfuck over the years, unfortunately, most of them are true. He is a despicable letch who spouts his life philosophy from the stage hoping that any moronic bimbo will find him funny and spend some time with him. Surprisingly, there are a lot of moronic bimbos out there! He started The Deadly Romantics as a joke and can’t believe he is still telling the same joke 15 years later! Greasier than a fat chick on a treadmill, Thunderfuck makes the dirtiest rock bars in the world seem like the Vatican. “Every girl should be fucked by Rock and Roll” he states, “and I am Rock and Roll!” Usually leaving his hotel rooms looking like a murder scene and the stages he graces covered in bodily fluids. Thunderfuck is a 14 year old boy trapped in the body of a sixty year old woman.
DOUCHEBAG : Douchebag crawls from the grates of Glasgow. Raised on McEwans lager from an early age, the Douchebag relocated to Canada at some point in the last millennium, and proceeded to destroy all things Budweiser. He is the peace keeper in the band and being the personification of gentrification, tries to implement his simple, worry free way of life on to the other members of the band, unsuccessfully. Johnny is the “crunch” of the band coming from the Ramones style of remedial guitar playing. He is the rhythm of the band, even if he refuses to rehearse songs until everyone else knows their parts. If he was a Harry Potter character, he would be Moaning Myrtle. When he is not playing in the band you can find him at home on flight simulators trying to “Blow Up the Jerries!” His life ambition is to finally get his amplifier repaired.
CUMSOCK : Cümsock lays down the thundering bass lines leaving a stain wherever he treads. He ejaculates a sonic powerhouse and splooges all over the sonic receptors of all who stand in his way. As a true Hamilton native, Cümsock oozes steel mill stench and survives on alcohol and shatter. In the Deadly Romantics, Cümsock plays the two strings he knows with passion and is currently attending night school studying Bass Guitar Tuning. He has played in many local bands, although none as impressive as his current gig, and prides himself on having no vision nor fashion sense and allows himself to be dressed by Thunderfuck before every gig. He is the audio/visual master of the band and can often be heard talking to himself in the corner of the room discussing “X-32’s”, “SM58’s” and “Channel Snakes”!!! Whatever the fuck that is!!
STRAY : Stacy is the latest addition to the Romantics. Toronto's Rock God extraordinaire. Adding a little class to Deadlies, Stacy hails from such Toronto luminaries as Robin Black & The Intergalactic Rock Stars, CJ Sleez and Die Mannequin. Hired on purely because he has a couple of Les Paul's (a Deadly requirement) and, lets be honest, Johnny needs a haircut, and when Stacy isn't shredding the fretboard, he is shredding rock stars hair at a really cool Toronto Hair Cut joint. Stacy goes back with Thunderfuck to his first, cassette only, release back in 1994, and obviously feels he owes Thunderfuck something otherwise there is no way he would be playing in this band. Just wait until you see this slinky cat on the stage, whether you're a boy are girl, you will be leaving the show with wet knickers!
BASHSKINS : Joined The Deadly Romantics in the Summer of 2005. Then what happened?? Well, TF fucked off to the UK and SMASH left for the green mountains of British Columbia. We, in the band, have named our drummers, mainly by numbers. Gordie 5, Mickey 13 etc., that is because Smash was number ONE. The circle is now complete. SMASH has returned to the Hammer, bringing is sonic imploding drums with him. SMASH was part of those early songs such as DO YOU WANNA ROCK AND ROLL, SCREAM MY NAME and PORNSTAR and we look forward to the next chapter of of the band with him firmly positioned on the drum stool. With the subtlety of a brick to the face, SMASH earns his stage name, not from his drumming skills but his personality.
Thunderfuck and the Deadly Romantics were formed in the industrial city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Over a career spanning two full length releases and four EPs, the band has successfully offended people across North America and Europe. Amateur song writing and what can only be described as childish and grossly immature lyrics, the band continues to defy logic by not splitting up and going home to make better lives for themselves. Making headlines in both Canada and the UK for their lack of empathy towards the snowflake generation, and continuing to find things such as misogyny, feminism and sexism entertaining topics to sing about. The band have played such festivals as the Breaking Bands Festival in Birmingham (UK) and headlining the Croatia Bike Week in Pula (Croatia), and continue their quest to bring rock’n’roll back to the masses.
