THE REVIEWS ARE IN!!!! 'A non stop thrill ride of action and Adventure! A wild roller coaster trip of musical mayhem ' - Ed Fernley, Regional Sales manager, Susquahanna Hat Co. 'It runs the gamut of emotions from A to C. I laughed uncontrollably and then I wept like a little girl. Then I soiled myself' - George W. Bush 'It's as if God himself came down from Heaven and said 'Let there be the greatest music in the history of the universe and let those who behold it's magnificence be granted the miracle of everlasting fortitude' and so he spake unto thou' -Ashley Simpson 'It's the most vile and decrepit gibberish I've ever had the ill-gotten misfortune to be a witness.

Imagine, you meet this chick and you go back to her place and you had quite a bit to drink and she pushes you down on the couch and pulls yer pants off and swings them over her head and let's them fly across the room and then she pulls off her dress and stands naked before you and you think, 'my GOD this is the most beautiful woman I've ever been with' Then there's a loud pounding on the door and she says 'oh my god it's my husband' and before you can say 'Your wha...?' the door bursts open and in walks the incredible Hulks bigger badder ball headed brother and as the veins pop out of his forhead he screams 'Yer DEAD punk!' and he pulls out a gun and he shoots and he misses and you jump out the window and onto the fire escape and he rushes toward you and you leap off and fall screaming 3 floors into the shit stained, trash filled, rat infested dumpster 3 floors below. Then you hear more shots and jump out of the dumpster and run down the alley and you hear the bullets ricochet of the brick walls and one nips your ear and you turn the corner and run out into the crowded city street where you are finally safe and you realize................ you're not wearing pants. That's what listening to this album is like. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * From the people Who gave you the mildly offensive 'Devil's Pecker Road' comes this latest collection of eclectic eccentric sometimes normal Original tunes. While still slightly twisted this offering gives more straight forward servings of it's various genres. Covering an array of styles from Hard Rock to Heavy Western to Power pop to Rockin' Blues to Country to 'Smooth Jazz' to New Wave to Heavy Metal to Blah blah frickin' blah! The only cover tune is the song 'Fun Flies'. This was originally done by Seattle alt-band superstars the 'Action Suits', which featured the charismatic crooning of underground artist Eric Reynolds and drumming by 'HATE' comic book creator Peter Bagge. As a wild coincidence the cover to BLASTED! Was DONE by PETE BAGGE!! Also included for those who BUY the CD, are 2 live tracks from the bands not so glory days of touring Amsterdam and the surrounding area's in the 80's.

And don't forget 'DEVIL'S PECKER ROAD' is still on sale!!!! Just click the link in the side bar and check it out! ********* BIO In 1980, in the SF bay area, Len Callo Joined with Ed Kane and Jeff Williams to form a band called 'the ASSASSINS'. Under the management of Bill McKay, this band, performing original hard rock and BizZAReNESS, became wildly popular in the area. After the tragic demise of the Assassins in 1983, Len joined up with another local favorite: 'BARR SINISTER' to write and perform more original music. One day (Sept. 17 '83 to be exact) after rehersals with this band he got his good time drinkin' buddies, Hair Bear and K-Dog to pick up the bass and drums and began playing his original solo songs. They jokingly refered to themselves as a POWER TRIO. By '85 Len moved on to a progressive metal band called 'MINORS IN POSSESSION' all the while continuing to rehearse and hone the now officially named 'POWER TTTRIO'. In '86 Barr Sinister disbanded and the TTTRIO began performing locally. They quickly gained attention for their wild antics and crazy perverse rockin' songs. By the end of '87 they were joined by former 'Assassin' Ed Kane and went to Amsterdam and became part of the music scene there. After 2 years off and on in A-Dam and Germany the TTTRIO, battered, tattered, bruised and abused by the wild underground experience, came home and took a long break from the music scene. In 1990 Len built a studio in the Bay Area. The trio re-grouped and began writing and playing new songs. They still played the occasional Bay Area gig but, rather than hit the weekly grind of playing all the Bay Area clubs on a regular basis, they would get on their Harley's and ride up and down the California coast, Delta or into the Sierra Mountains. There they would check into small towns and howl with the locals at taverns and pubs, sitting in with the local bands and goin' nuts. In '99 Len joined South Bay rockers, 'PHANTOM 57' and began gigging again regulary. In 2000 Len made a solo CD of some old original songs just for posterity. The CD's were snapped up at local shows. In 2002 a second CD was made with the same results. In 2003 'Phantom 57' disbanded and the POWER TTTRIO began performing again on a regular basis. The locals all know what to expect and turn out at the local shit-holes to drink and party and hear original music that they know they can't hear anywhere else. 2004 brought the release of 'Devil's Pecker Road' which captured the imagination of perverts and derelects in the fishing village of Alviso and Bay area high school students. Now, the follow up album, 'BLASTED' is sure to have the same results. Hey, if you've read this far, you might as well go all the way and BUY THE F***IN' CD ALREADY! 2005: with 'Blasted' causing a buzz in Bay Area Bar Rooms and the mental illness of bassist Hair Bair in full bloom, the TTTRIO enlisted the services of former Pantom 57 member and veteran rocker Jason Crane a.k.a. 'the WALRUS' to fill in. 2006 Officially renamed 'The TroubleTown TTTrio' Lencat, K-Dog and Walrus continue to rock Bay Area shit holes while awaiting the release of the upcomming album 'Sex Axe'. Look for it soon!
