Tailgunner Joe / Press

"I would never think that a nice group of church going, church activity doing boys would be able to scratch me where it itches, and they did just that. Mind-blowing."

"One of the most promising young bands to hit the scene of late"

“With a screech of reverb and a few notes of distorted guitar, Tailgunner Joe kicks off the rabble rousing money-and-fame-themed Money Game. “Shake The Hive” sets the tone of the Tampa four-piece’s second EP, their punchy garage rock marked by a tasty Southern fried strut and snotty punk attitude complete with dual sneering vocals by brothers A.T. Moore (bass) and Cannon Lee (drums). “Fire on the Coast” has a nice slow sauntering breakdown, “Disengage” is the fast-paced stomper that closes Money Game, but it’s the title track that serves as the album’s standout. “Money Game” is a straightforward radio-ready rock number about musicians who leave their local scene behind and return too big for their britches, and the smooth flow of Tampa rapper P. Kumlawdi gives the track unexpected pop appeal.”

“Notable Tampa, Florida rockers Tailgunner Joe dish it out on their second record. Produced by Louis DeFabrizio of Gasoline Heart and featuring Tampa rapper P. Kumlawdi on the title track, "Money Game," This eclectic album is a bona fide hard-hitter”
