About Sudden Death
NOTE: In 2008 Tom Rockwell decided to drop the name Sudden Death and continue recording and performing under his nickname Devo Spice.
Sudden Death is one of the premiere musical comedy acts on the scene today. Fronted by comedian Tom Rockwell of New Jersey Sudden Death has become one of the most popular artists on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show. Their songs "Cellular Degeneration", "Getting Old Sucks" and "Pillagers" were the numbers 1, 2, and 4 most requested songs on Dr. Demento in 2007.
Sudden Death broke onto the scene in 1998 when "South Park Junkie"- the first song Dr. Demento aired about South park- became the 4th most requested song of the year. Since then Sudden Death has had several number one hits on the show including "Spam," a song about junk emails, and "Cellular Degeneration," a rant about cell phones that do everything but make phone calls.
Sudden Death performs regularly across the country at music clubs, comedy clubs, and science fiction conventions. The live show features Tom Rockwell usually performing solo along with videos and animations synchronized with the music. The show often features costume changes, props, and even puppets. The end result is a hilarious show that goes over very well for a variety of audiences.
In 2008 Sudden Death released a new album called Fatal Error which features the songs mentioned above plus other hilarious original songs and parodies.
In 2007 Sudden Death became a Core member of The Funny Music Project, or The FuMP (http://www.thefump.com) which releases 2 songs every week for free under a Creative Commons license.
