Synopsis

Amazon.com
Anyone who feared that Tuscadero's The Pink Album was a flash in the pan will be smiling themselves silly to hear the bigger bang the band has created with My Way or the Highway. Their sophomore effort finds the quartet maturing nicely, trading in the whimsical naivete of their debut for a more mature approach that loses nothing in the translation--or the instrumentation. Hip-hop approximations with fiddles ("Tickled Pink"), sassy horns, sleazy wah-wah pedals ("Paper Dolls"), and swells of synths and horns with bass lines straight out of a spy theme (the exhilarating "Dr. Doom") all prove Tuscadero have more than just a kitschy name and catchy tunes. Melissa Farris and Margaret McCartney give the Kate Pierson/Cindy Wilson team (B-52s) a run for their money with whoops, hiccups, and impossible harmonies. --Steve Gdula

"This band kick's a$$. This album kicks a$$. Seen em' in DC's Black Cat. Paper Dolls is probaly the best song on the album. Bye this album you'll like it. I LOVE MARGRET. Melissa eyes roll into the back of her head when she gets into the music. damn. Must have. The album hits home with the fun lovin' punks like Freak Magnet and You Got Your Pride."
