TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb are three young men from Philadelphia, TJ Kong, Dan Martino and J.J. Willis, who play boot-stomp/folk/freak-out/blues music. Dan Bruskewicz met Dan Martino during a period they would each come to refer to as the "dark times." They were both employed by the same terrible, mindless, trendy, Center City restaurant and both had unkept souls that demanded breath. One Easter Sunday they decided to kick a few back and play some tunes that Bruskewicz had dreampt up. The tunes were NOT terrible. They sought out a bassist. They started and then deleted a Sonicbids account. They traveled in the Bassist's (J.J. Willis) Subaru Outback to places they'd never been. They laughed at themselves. People danced and yelled and screamed things and sang and drank in unison. Their souls rejoiced.
The trio have a new EP out called The Hinterlands. You can get it at tjkongandtheatomicbomb.com or at any one of their shows.
