As camp as Adam West’s Batman and as musically crisp as Steely Dan, The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco, the UK cult band-in-their-own-minds, roll along with their latest offering, the four-song EP, Cruise Control.
Sarcastic to the hilt, The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco skewer mental health and Scientology on the EP’s title track, “Cruise Control,” moving right into the standout “The Legend of Josi & The Juke.” Based on the Walt Disney short, A Cowboy Needs A Horse, the song’s opening guitar nod to Kid Rock’s “Cowboy” sums up the band’s reason for being in 11 seconds.
Trading their nation’s quiet reserve for a smart ass stance more American in nature, The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco may be too smart for its own good. Somehow I don’t think this bothers the band one bit.
