ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 4th album by Seattle-based “Worlds’ Only Swingasurfajazzabilly Band”, The Pornadoes. Their second outing with lead-singer Jasper McCann, “Go Tiger GO!” picks up where their previous album Launchpad Omega left off… showcasing a tightly-written array of charts in their signature style, a seamless blend of rockabilly, surf, western country swing, and jazz. “Go Tiger, GO!” is filled with the blistering guitar work of J. “Mr. Goessl” Goessl, adeptly supported by the stellar bass playing of E. “Chet Gracenote” Sobotta and the thunderous drumming of T. “Tommy Ramshaft” Zgnoc. McCann’s lyrics offer more “swingasurfajazzabilly” delights, ranging from a rockabilly jazz chart about a lady heartbreaker named after an English folk hero (“Robbin’ Hood”), to a cheeky country song about a gal who's ready to move on ("Waiting On A Spring Divorce") to the revenge-ballad/rocker, “Trouble’s Gonna Find You”.

If you dig rockabilly music that goes beyond the rigidly traditional, “Go Tiger, GO!” will make you flip your lid!

The Tracks:

Rail Ripper (Surf Theme from Isle Of The Forbidden)

Written as the opening number for a concept show of Jasper’s, this homage to the classic surf sound is revved-up with extra distortion and lightning-fast tremolo picking from Mr. Goessl. We think Pixies’ Joey Santiago would be proud.



Thunderhead

When you love a woman enough to ride 1000 miles through a storm, this is the song you write about her. Heavy blues rock with a chorus like lightning and pounding slap bass!



Robbin’ Hood

Inspired by a friend of Jasper’s, this jump-jazz/rockabilly chart likens this young heartbreaker to Sherwood’s most famous bandit. But she’s not stealing silver, she’s stealin’ hearts!



Go Tiger, GO!

The title track is a straight-ahead hard rockabilly shuffle, inspired by a particular redhead who prowls like a tiger. With ripping guitar work and a rockin’ backbeat, this chart is sure to make you swing! Go Tiger, GO!..... GOES!



Waiting For A Spring Divorce

A country ballad about a genteel lady who’s tryin’ to get on with her life, and the things she might do to her ex to start the ball rolling. Country harmonies, clever lyrics, and a tiny bit of a Tennessee yodel add to the fun.

The Lone Wolf

If Ennio Morricone wrote a surf/western theme for Al Ciaola, this would be it. Ride off into the sunset as you listen to this heroic yet melancholy instrumental that seems to be straight out of the credits of your new favorite Spaghetti Western.



You Dodged A Bullet

The first single of the album is a semi-autobiographical yarn about always managing to get out of a scrape, and a cautionary tale to change your ways. There’s a Bo Diddley lick in this one, just so’s you know.



Right Kind Of Woman (From The Wrong Side of The Tracks)

Even though you know you shouldn’t, you can’t help fall for this gal. This reverb-laden slow shuffle starts off slinky and builds to two frenzied choruses, with a monstrous guitar solo sandwiched in between.



Trouble’s Gonna Find You

A revenge ballad, this chart is the prequel (written after-the-fact!) to Launchpad Omega’s “Dodge City”. An unusual 9-bar form is the backbone of the verse, and the chorus fires up to a rockin’ double-time tempo.



The Twilight Waves

The closing track of the album is an ethereal surf ballad about the changing tides of love. Float away to a distant shore as Mr. Goessl’s guitar creates wave upon wave of ghostly chords that underlie the haunting harmonies of the vocals.
