about

Todger are proud to present their second single, "Hole In The Ground" from their studio album "Arbiters Of Blame" (11 Nov 2016).

At the end of the world, in the harmonious south, we must all dig deep.

Roaring into the truck stop of your ear hole, Todger have been knocking out hard rocking, good times with a god damn silly band name since 2002. Drawing from 70s classic and southern rock, they blend their tight grooving rhythms and slick guitar work with tongue-in-cheek tall tales and belt-it-out BVs.

In November 2016, Todger launch their latest full studio album; "Arbiters Of Blame". With it Todger have further honed their love of guitar-rich rock styles and searing solos of yesteryear. They slurp deeply from the likes of Thin Lizzy, GnR, and Rainbow, mixing it with the big BV sing-a-long inspiration of acts such as Doobie Brothers, Eagles, The Band and even a little of Rogers And Hammerstein. With it comes the Good Reverend's dark-humoured vignettes of murder, mayhem and innuendo reminiscent of Nick Cave, Alice Cooper, Clutch and the stranger brews of bands like They Might Be Giants and The Presidents Of USA.

Todger. the first and last word in truck-based pan-genre-omni-rock. Hell Yeah!

lyrics

I’ve been living in a hole in the ground, Till the end of days, that’s where I will be found, I won’t bear no cross, and I don’t wear no crown, And I won’t give a damn, no. Living in a hole in the ground, Til the end of days. When I’m found, The dead don’t bear, bear no cross, Don’t wear no crown, And I won’t give a damn no, In my hole in the ground. Fetch me my bucket and spade, Fetch me my fork and shovel, Looking at the night’s sky brother, I can tell there’s gonna be big, big trouble. Come on! You got to dig, We’ve got some depths to delve, Put your back into it brother, Cos these folks, these folks won’t bury themselves. Oh you say you wanna live on down below, Where the sun don’t shine. I’ve heard of apocalypse, From cryptozoologists, Who study the migration pattern of the mighty Sasquatch, And his fellow cryptids. Come on! You got to see, The things I’ve got in store, Put your back into it brother, We got to DIG, DIG, to the very earth’s core. I’ve been Living, Dying, Twisting, Turning, Living, Smoking, Drinking, Fighting, Loving, Hurting, Burning, Living, Breaking, Digging, Delving, Stealing, Clawing, Scratching, Hoping, Learning, Reeling, Churning, Worming, Squirming. Till the end of days, that’s where I will be found, I won’t bear no cross, and I don’t wear no crown, I won’t give a damn in my hole in the ground. Dig!
