A brand new original Surf-track from your favorite surfband, the infamous „The golden tornadoes“. When I wrote and arranged this song I associated at first „slam dance“ or „pogo“ with the music. Back in the 80s I was a faithful customer of the legendary underground disco „Batschkapp“ in Frankfurt. At these times they played mostly Darkwave, Hardcore and Metal and little brave Dirk jumped every weekend into the moshpit, which was overcrowded with dangerous looking Punks, Skins and Metalheads.
But looking for the right video-footage I was not happy with that title anymore and stumbled at last over a very charming old animation-movie produced for General Motors/Chevrolet back in 1938. Though it seems that the movie is not related to Chevrolet you can see a Chevrolet at the end of the movie to save the heroes from the bad pirate.
Watch the complete movie here:

When watching this old gem from the past I wondered about the quality of the cartoon-animation and decided to change the title of the song to „Peg leg pedro“.

Instruments used:

Lead guitar: Guild X-175 with Bigsby

Rhythm guitar: Ibanez FRM-100

Bass: Bassculture Picco

Drums: VSL Jazz drums

I sticked with some recording techniques, which I tested on „Bonanza“, so the rhythm guitar is running again through a Biamp-setup
Musically you can expect a crazy mixture of Surf, Jazz-infused Rockabilly a la Brian Setzer and even a part, which is close to dodecaphony, probably influenced by Trash and Death-Metal.
