CD Review The Wheelgrinders – Torque Flite Baby

Posted by Miriam On October - 10 - 2017206 views

Rockabilly trio The Wheelgrinders, Vancouver Canada, already introduced a few weeks ago on Rockabilly Online, has released their debut CD “Torque-Flite Baby”.
And what a debut!

The CD was recorded at Bryan Adams’ The Warehouse studio in Vancouver as well as at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. The album title “Torque-Flite Baby” is written about their 1957 Dodge Coronet car which has Torque-Flite transmission.
The CD is filled with 12 songs; four songs are written by Greg (guitar and lead vocals), like Hangry Baby, Betty Lou’s got a new tattoo, Space Rabbits Go! and the title track Torque-Flite Baby.
But you can also find some fifties originals in a up tempo version, like Hip Hip Baby, Uranium Rock, Jungle Rock, Tag along and Good night Irene.
By hearing the songs, you wouldn’t say that this band only played together for 2 years; there is an incredible energy and enthusiasm. Rockabilly at its best!

Caroline (upright bass) and Stuart (drums) take care of the necessary rhythm as if they had never done anything else. Greg has an authentic voice to complete a real fifties sound.
For the Rockabilly fans in Canada, make sure you see them in action. When their gig is just as catching as their CD, it is definitely worth it. And for the Rockabilly-lovers overseas, hope they’ll visit your country someday….
