Indie Pop At Its Finest

"I first heard Tuscadero in the Spring of 1994 while living in Boston. A local college radio station happened to broadcast their song "Nancy Drew". By the time the song was over, I was forever hooked. I quickly bought the 7" single of "Nancy Drew" and played it repeatedly for over a year. When Teen Beat released "The Pink Album" on CD, I was ecstatic. Blending pop rhythms and harmonies with a spare, no nonsense style, Tuscadero remain one of my all-time favorite bands. From the opening track, "Heat Lightnin'", through to "Nancy Drew" and beyond, the album is a pop masterpiece. I often wondered why the band rerecorded the album for Elektra when the original version sounds so perfect. Although the Elektra release adds a bit of slickness to the recordings (probably for commercial airplay), it really doesn't subtract that much from the band's overall sound. While I agree with Melissa's above stated recommendation to buy the Teen Beat release, any medium which affords you the opportunity to experience Tuscadero's music is well worth the price. Since the mid '90's, Tuscadero has evolved into accomplished live performers and deserve serious consideration from music fans who may be jaded by the current scene. A genuine breath of fresh air."

"I love Tuscadero--their lyrics, their sound, most of all the sense they're having a grand ol' time. I heard "Nancy Drew" years ago and still addictively sing along each time I hear it(every kid who's recently left home can relate). The lyrics are so amusing and the CD gets you in a great mood. How can you not appreciate "Hollywood Handsome"?(don't we 'all' know some of those "not much upstairs but what a hottie" types?) BUY THIS CD!"
These Chickies Rock!

"This band is awesome, and this album is great! Hollywood Handsome is a classic, as is "Dime A Dozen". Love the laid back vocals and ripping guitar."
