Hello there,

We are The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco....thanks for coming to see us.  Our 'Cruise Control' EP 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:
BBC Introducing with Tom Robinson on 6 music

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.

Best Kept - Queen Of Hoxton, London 

We're doing a duo show at The Queen Of Hoxton in London next Wednesday 1st October at 9pm supporting The Savage Nomads and Hawk.  If you'd like to come, send us a message and we'll put you on the reduced price guest list.  Or get more information and tickets from here.  Hope to see some of you there.

Live from the bunker 

The injunction has been lifted and the electronic tags removed (much obliged, Your Majesty) and so we can hit the road with our parole officer as roadie.  The first show in the book is at the Cardiff Brewhouse on November 24th - join our mailing list using the form on this page and we'll let you know soon when there's a show near you.

Rehearsals in the bunker have begun well - a first taste of what's to come can be found here ……. places, everyone.


Please join our mailing list....it makes our day....
