About TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb

Idiots manufacturing joy and dancing out the door.

More Specifically...

"Eclectic and evocative, stirring together dusty cinematic arrangements with lyrical tales of depravity and hard-luck humanity that sound like something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel."
- WXPN

"Playing Americana 'slash blues', they sing, wail, lament, and brood over being drunk, hungover, alone, depressed, sweaty, and lost. A simple recount of a whiskey-inspired tradition on guitar and harmonica."
- Pop Montreal

"A contemporary-ancient brand of Americana similar to The Band or, at its crankiest extreme, Captain Beefheart... with a dirty Mersey Beat that'd shame the Animals."
- Philadelphia Citypaper

"It lands somewhere between The Basement Tapes and Anodyne, with a ragged, lo-fi aesthetic and lyrics drenched in heartbreak and whiskey.”
- Pop Matters

“A post-apocalyptic fall-out shelter house band.”
- Philadelphia Weekly

"There's something about the warm twang of Philadelphia-based post-apocalyptic americana band TJ Kong & The Atomic Bomb."
- Baeble Music

"Their music sounds like an unhinged rock and roll celebration that is filled with so much carefree energy and freedom that it would serve as a fitting soundtrack for a time when people have nothing left to lose. The group’s heady, joyous concoction of garage, blues, punk and piano rock is a welcome force in today’s daily turmoil."
- Glide Magazine

"Entertainingly unhinged."
- CBS Philadelphia

"Sounding like a cross between the Mountain Goats, Tom Waits and the ghost of Captain Beefheart serenading the crowd at a drunken rodeo, these guys cherry pick from the American songbook for both whiskey-soaked missives and woozy balladry."
- The Deli Magazine

"One of the most sought after bands in Philly."
