For those curious to know, the band's name is a respectful appropriation of The Clash song and their music is primarily influenced by the British new wave and post-punk revival of the new millennium. TBR started gaining momentum after winning Rock Targato Italia (Italian Branded Rock) in 2009 and consistent touring of the peninsula.
