About this deal

The Tornadoes were an American surf band from Redlands, California. They were the second band to receive national airplay with a surf instrumental, after The Marketts, with their song "Bustin' Surfboards", released on Aertaun Records in 1962. "Bustin' Surfboards" has since become a classic and mainstay of the surf genre. One of its distinctions, and appeals, was that the song opened with the sound of an ocean swell that continued throughout the song, thereby creating a sense of being at a beach. The album with the same name was belatedly released on September 20, 1963. The band, however, did not manage to follow up on their success. Their song "Shootin' Beavers" was banned from airplay because of its suggestive title. The band temporarily changed their name to The Hollywood Tornadoes, because the British band, The Tornados, were charting with the song " Telstar." Phantom Surfer" / "Lightnin'" Aertaun Records (1964) ("Lightnin'" is an instrumental version of "Shootin' Beavers") The Gremmie Pt. 1" / "The Gremmie Pt. 2" Aertaun Records (1962) (Issued as The Hollywood Tornadoes)

More recordings followed, with a name change to the Hollywood Tornadoes for their next two singles in deference to their British namesakes, who had charted higher with "Telstar." Their fourth single, "Shootin' Beavers," was banned from radio play because of the so-called suggestive title. No more hits were forthcoming, although they did release one excellent album that stands as one of the earliest -- and best -- examples of the genre. And when Quentin Tarantino featured "Bustin' Surfboards" in his 1994 film Pulp Fiction, the bandmembers subsequently reunited -- minus saxophonist George White -- to release Bustin' Surfboards '98 three and a half decades after their original hit. ~ Cub Koda HOMETOWN Redlands, CA, United States The Tornadoes were a surf band from Redlands, California, the second band to receive national airplay with a surf instrumental, after The Marketts.
