Hello there,

We are The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco....thanks for coming to see us.  Our album 'Private Jet Flashback' is available from here.  Please do help yourself.

Here's a video of 'Clean Break' featuring Vince Gear-Gaiter Senior as himself to get you started:

Radio Unleashed 

With enormous thanks to Dave Leonard, here's the latest Radio Unleashed show for your listening pleasure.  Amongst the sonic delights winging their way from Woodstock this time are Harry Connick Jr, The Cocteau Twins, Fleet Foxes and us (a demo of a new song, 'Kiki vs. Alice From The Breakers').  Who'd have thunk it?

Saturday 31st January - Soundhouse @ The Bull, Colchester 

We're playing with the full band at Soundhouse @ The Bull, Colchester on Saturday 31st January with Mick Terry in support.  It's a lovely little gem of a venue behind the pub (you can buy a pint on the way through - ace) and the doors open at 8.45pm with Mick playing from 9.15pm and then us.  Free entry!  Hope to see you there.

Radio Unleashed 

A happy new year to you and yours - and here's a 2015 resolution for you - listen to Dave Leonard's Radio Unleashed every week.  Broadcast from Woodstock, New York, it's two hours of great stuff every time with wheat pre-separated from chaff for your listening pleasure.  This week was a best of 2014 including tracks (our favourites) from Ray Lamontagne, Saint Pepsi, The Decemberists and, er, two chancers from Essex.  Go on, have some here.


Acoustic gig 12th Jan 

We're doing an acoustic gig with Mick Wilson (10cc) at The Switch Bar in Woodford, Essex next Monday the 12th January from 8pm.  Do help yourselves if you're in the area.  It's a lovely bar and a great night of music with Mick, Al Vosper (Illegal Eagles) and us mopping up the gravy.  It's here if you fancy a slice.

Caught on CCTV 

Rehearsing for next Monday 24th November at The Brewhouse, Cardiff in direct contravention of our restraining order, security cameras picked up a live, full band recording of 'Benny Rise & Shine'.  You can watch it here. 

Join us in Cardiff next week if you can to celebrate the lifting of the injunction.

Live at The Brewhouse, Cardiff 

With thanks to Big Scott Radio and Cardiff FM, we're playing at The Brewhouse in Cardiff on Monday 24th November (from 8.30pm) as part of their 'Originals' night.  Our first full-band set and lots of other new music besides in one of the best small venues we've been to in ages.  Find out more here.

CD release 

Quite a lot of you lovely music types have told us 'we don't do downloads' - and cheers to you.  To show solidarity, we've put 6 tracks from our mini-album, 3 from our EP and 'Jackie & Norm And The Hairdresser To The Star' (all re-mastered and packaged in a cardboard sleeve with artwork by Rose Moore) onto a CD for the first time. There are only 300….it's called 'Private Jet Flashback (Mile High Club Edition)' and if you'd like one you can get it from Bandcamp here.

Many thanks,

David & Mal 

Real Gone Rocks review 

The really rather excellent Real Gone Rocks has reviewed 'Private Jet Flashback' and previewed our new CD compilation all in one tremendous missive.  He knows his stuff (and ours).  Please cast an eye over this and allow yourself to be thrust into a world of of useful thoughts.

16th October Camden show cancelled 

The show on 16th October in Camden has been cancelled by the promoter due to a corporate event now taking place at the venue.   We're thinking that maybe Tammy's lawyers have thrown a legal spanner in the works…keep your heads down and your noses clean.   Our next show is now in Cardiff at the Brewhouse on the 24th November, but you didn't hear that from us.
