TMA - What's For Dinner? LP
Cool album of this New Jersey band. TMA seems to stand for Tim Mike and Al, 3 members of the band although there's a 4th member called Dave on vocals.
'Whats For Dinner' was released on Jimboco Records in 1984.
My copy is a later pressing as the colours differ from the original sleeve. There's also a sticker on the frontsleeve (btw artwork is horrible!) with a MRR review of the album written by Tim Yohannon.
'Who are these guys? Well, whoever they really shred. TMA play totally fast gnarly thrash with lost of hooks and tunes. Tight and clean too.The lyrics are totally punkrock: bitchin' and moanin' 'bout everything.'
Their first vinyl appearance was on the 'Hardcore Takes Over' comp. on Dirt Records (which I will post later).
They did a 2nd album in 1987 called 'Beach Party 2000'.
Great hardcore punk in the style of Angry Samoans. 20 tracks in less than 27 minutes.
