Tornado Magnet: Double Wide

May 20, 2009

Tornado Magnet are an American alt-country super group featuring former members of The Beat Farmers, The Johnny Cash Band, Ricky Skaggs, The Bastard Sons Of Johnny Cash. Now with a resume like that I expect something special and while the songs are a very well written, very well paid slice of Americana I have to get all Simon Cowell on their asses ‘cos they are just too frigging polished in a CMT way. Authentic sounding outlaw country this isn’t – (disappointingly ) give me Pete Berwick for that.
