"Fasten your seatbelts boys and girls, here come the 3Tards!
Classic hardcore punk/metal in the vein of the Dayglo Abortions/ Plasmatics/ D.O.A.,
the 3Tards are tight, humorous and totally fucked. A relentless assault of guitars and drums
(courtesy of former Sacrifice sticksman), form the perfect foil for their off the wall often
Hilarious lyrics, delivered with a level of musicianship and passion rarely encountered
since the mad/bad 80's.
Masterfully produced by Murdersquad's Preston Sims, "Greatest Hits Volume 2" is a powerhouse
of infectious/ infected Rawk - coupled with their outrageous live shows, expect the 3Tards to
become the ASSCORE gods of the North. " Troy Sinister
NERVE MAGAZINE, July 2004
This is not some COCKNEY REJECTS parody, as the CD title might suggest. When questioned about this the band pleaded ignorance. In fact, the band have more of an appreciation that spans the worlds of DAYGLOW ABORTIONS and SLAYER or even the drummer's old band SACRIFICE. Prior to any of this knowledge the 3TARDS reminded me of a modern day EPILEPTIC BRAIN SURGEONS - technically proficient and super witty. The 3TARDS are of the school of MY DOG POPPER, but with the ability to throw in cheese metal amidst a melodic driving brand of hardcore. Playing what they also refer to as "asscore" the 3TARDS also remind me of the zaniness of the MUSCLE BITCHES. John, the vocalist, sounds like the guy from TH'INBRED or Jeff Beardall of GUILT PARADE. And lyrically there are so many cock rock references as in "The Mullet" and "Gay Heavy Metal Singer" that the band's metal side is exposed. But whether it is the Zappa inspired guitar work of Mike Tard or the RUSH inspired drumming of Gus Tard or the Dayglo inspired side of Fox Tard or the S.O.D. inspired side of John Tard, the 3TARDS have put together a gut splitting debut release. All rise for the court jesters of hogtown.
