ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BEST NOVELTY ALBUM NOMINATION 2002 Just Plain Folks Awards - CHROME
BEST NOVELTY SONG NOMINATION 2002 Just Plain Folks Awards - N.R.L. (NURSERY RHYME LAWYER SONG)

They are "The World's Greatest Alternative Rock Comedy Band." They are "The Very Best In Comedy Rock." They are, Throwing Toasters.

Biography

Throwing Toasters is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Grant Baciocco. They are the "World's Greatest Alternative Rock Comedy Band." Combining catchy music with wry, witty lyrics and an amazing live show, Throwing Toasters have entertained audiences all over the world.

This is no small feat when you consider the trouble the band goes through on a daily basis. Though the band's web site and all literature from them lists four members in the group (Baciocco, guitarist Dirk Underwood, bassist Timmy DuFell and drummer Stev "Musty" Jurgens), Baciocco is the only member who ever shows up at the shows. No one has ever seen the band together and there are serious doubts as to whether the other three members exists or if they are purely figments of Baciocco's imagination.

One cannot doubt, however, the raw power that comes from a Throwing Toasters performance. It's high energy, fun and most refreshingly, not vulgar. Baciocco says, "Being crude in a funny song is taking the easy way out. That's why I don't do it."

The band has put out three albums, 'Alvin', 'burnt' and the newly released 'CHROME'. Their songs have also become staples on the Dr. Demento Nationwide Radio Show and college stations across the country. The Throwing Toasters song DEBBIE, from the album 'burnt', was the #3 comedy song in the country in 1999 and 2000 and was included on the CD Dr. Demento's Basement Tapes #9 in 2001. Their song N.R.L. (NURSERY RHYME LAWYER SONG) went to #1 on the comedy music charts in April of 2002. BAD INFLUENCE, also off of 'CHROME' went to #2 in August 2002.

Throwing Toasters truly is, "The Main Event In Comedy Rock!"

Buy Chrome and laugh all Night!
This cd is the best comedy Rock cd I have heard. Buy this great cd now and you'll be laughing all night.

Katie Morgan

A great addition to Throwing Toasters' alphabet
"CHROME" is a slick, professional version of Throwing Toasters and, in my opinion, their best CD yet. It has many new songs, as well as a few updated classics. Grant's wit and humor come out wonderfully in the intros and the new songs which range in topics from nursery rhymes to Mrs. Claus to cheese to unmercifully hip chicks. A definite must have!

Patti Brown aka alfiesgal

Chrome is a great cd!
I love "Chrome"! It's a fun cd to listen to anytime! I especially enjoy listening while doing housework. My favorites are "SkrewU" and "Girl(You Can Feed My Hamster)". Do yourself a favor and get this cd! You won't regret it!

Brenda (aka princessofcandles)

Chrome shines above the rest!
Chrome shines above the rest. Love this CD! My personal favorite is Cheese. Which one will be your favorite? Everyone needs to add Chrome to your collection! No lie! Why would I lie? I don't even know you.

Timothy (Pooh Bear) Winslow

They out did themselves!
If you liked Burnt, you'll LOVE Chrome. It's a CD that stays in my car, so I always have something to laugh with. Buy it, you won't regret it.

great cd
That just about says it all. Throwing Toasters is the best comedy group in existance. I wish I had the guitar tab for NRL and Bad Influence.

Frank Sortino

A really fun CD!
A great CD to listen to while breathing! What more can I say, it's worth a listen.

Kristi

Nothing But The Best!
Chrome was my first Throwing Toasters CD, and sometimes I wonder why I haven't worn it out yet! It's just that funny!
The CD is very professionally done and features the WHOLE BAND, which is something that you don't often get if you see Throwing Toasters live! My favorites on this CD are Nursery Rhyme Lawyer, Skrew U, and Cheese Enough. If you like comedy music, you will love Chrome. Pick up a copy today...and prepare to laugh yourself silly!
