ghost from yesteryear.
Tremendous Fucking (TremFu) was exactly what the name implied: an auditory onslaught that simultaneously inspired fear, euphoria, a slight burning sensation, and deep feelings of shame - the kind you feel the next morning when you're scamming a ride home in the same short skirt you went out in the night before. Like bastard children of The Jesus Lizard and Black Flag, TF lived and breathed a breed of rock'n'roll that is largely extinct - the kind that actually rocked.
