"2006 release. Fast, caustic, abrasive, dangerous and disturbing: TDK were real radicals -- provocative beyond mere slogan-making. "TDK" stands for "Terrorism, Destruction and Chaos (Kaos)." They were born in Madrid in 1984 with Jose (guitar), Maguu (drums), Alfonso Cronopio (voice) and Manolo UVI (bass guitar) as their first line-up. Soon Manolo would leave and be replaced by Paco Lanaquera (from Panaderia Bolleria Nuestra Senora del Carmen). The band would record no less than five LPs and three singles, and Carnevision was released in 1986. The sound of their beginnings could be described as fast-as-fuck hardcore punk, à la Dead Kennedys. As a matter of fact, TDK received a note from Jello Biafra himself in which the Kennedys singer congratulated them, saying how surprised he was to listen to such a wild band coming from Spain. And so TDKs reputation and fame reached even the U.S.A.: on New York Citys leading punk radio station, they were labeled one of the 10 best hardcore bands in the world. After Alfonso left, precisely to go to the U.S., the rest continued as a trio, releasing their last three albums (A toda prisa, Como una Pesadilla and La Nueva Era de los Masters) with a radical change in style: they even released the first hip-hop album made in Spain." -Munster.
