The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco - Cruise Control EP

The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco – Cruise Control EP

A melody that would befit any American TV show such as Cheers or the Fall Guy mixed with the stand out influences of Steely Dan; this is The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco.

This four track EP Cruise Control, a follow up to Private Jet Flashback, which is available to order from their website. This sound of the 70s is a fresh makeover for listeners of today

Cruise Control, the opening track with a jazz funk style, a great beat, the lyrics flow well, sipping a coca cola, its syrup for the brain”, a lyric that may have many connotations.

‘The Legend of Josi and the Juke’ is the Chuck Norris of the EP, based on the Walt Disney cartoon The Cowboy Needs a Horse. The flow is catchy as is the chorus.  “Toe-tapping cowboy wiping a tear from behind their wagon, but as we know, cowboys don’t cry”. Bearing in mind their lyrics mention a local swimming baths, the Leyton lagoon and their flume, which architectural wise is being reconstructed.

“If love is the answer, then I love no one”, is a thought provoking lyric in List Song’, old school rock pop, a blues guitar sound with melancholic vocals, there isn’t a bad tune on this EP, while they have hidden their identity they do have big ideas with this sound, easily could be compared or featured in the background of a Quentin Tarantino movie.

This talented nu jazz funk band finishes this EP with Breakfast for Kings’, a soulful track that may well be about too much alcohol being consumed. Step up to the bar let’s be honest. Too early to write off the day, there must be a hole in my pocket. Bring out the horses to play”.

The designated head of General Motors Harley Earl came to the band in a dream, to tell them to create melody and meaning that will allow the human race to move freely without drag…be aerodynamic…Be the 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco.

Cruise Control is available now to purchase from their website, a highly recommended EP that has an old school feel with a raw fresh sound.
