Goin' Out In Style

by Transistor Rodeo

OK, Transistor Rodeo fell in with the wrong crowd. And yes, their whiskey-soaked, rootsy rock ‘n’ roll cracks with all the danger of a twelve gauge. But the tunes soar with huge hooks and thoughtful lyrics. They move your ass AND your heart.

Album Notes
Transistor Rodeo is pure Americana. Not only does Transistor Rodeo write
and perform catchy, heartfelt tunes, but the deliver them with an intensity
and immediacy not often found in their genre. T.R. write intelligent songs
with great, rootsy, pop hooks and thoughtful lyrics. Though they have been
compared to other “alt-country” and “twang rock” acts, that only scratches
the surface. Picture Hemmingway smothered in zesty southern bar-b-que
The band began in 1996 as a writing project by founding members Bob
Jordan (lead vocals and guitar) and Doug Goldberg (guitar). Bob & Doug
penned tunes at breakneck speed and before long it was apparent that they
would need a full band to complete their vision. At that point they recruited
Tim Reeder (drums & vocals), Joe McClure (bass & vocals) and Judy Burke
(violin & vocals) to round out the unit. The members of the band hail from all
over the USA (Kentucky, Ohio, Delaware, Brooklyn, NY) but they all share a
love of music that moves people and says something.
The band finished their debut CD, “Plastic Palomino” in 1998 and started
playing live shows around the Philadelphia area. T.R.’s spirited live show and
dusty heartfelt tunes started getting a lot of attention. Soon they were
packing saloons and the CD was selling briskly.
Bob & Doug continued writing all the while and in 2000, Transistor Rodeo started recording
their follow-up CD “White Trash Honeymoon”. The CD, which was
recorded in a barn with a budget of about 500 bucks, became the band’s
landmark work. The CD contains 10 songs that vacillate from straight ahead
“alt-country” rock to soft “California” ballads while maintaining a strong
During the recording of “White Trash Honeymoon” the band signed a
recording contract with A.I.R. Records, an independent, Philadelphia based
label. “White Trash Honeymoon” was released in March 2002 and has
enjoyed solid worldwide sales since its debut. The band has continued to
perform live shows to a growing list of fans. In February of 2003, They began work on a new CD
"Goin’ Out in Style” which was released on June 6, 2006. "Goin' Out in Style" showcases the band's ever evolving songwriting and musicianship, and features higher standards of production (in layman's speak, the CD sounds great!).
The songs contained on Goin' Out in Style range from rockers such as "Sit Down" and "Can't Save me Now", to intimate ballads like "Or So They Say", and all the while Transistor Rodeo maintains a sense of cohesiveness and individuality.
Transistor Rodeo's music is instantly accessible and comfortably familiar, but the band also remains extremely recognizable and unique (not an easy thing to do by any stretch of the imagination!).

Nice country flavoring!
Goin' Out In Style is a pretty sweet album. It's a little hard for me to tell if it's country-flavored rock or rock-flavored country, but either way it's got a great sound that distinguishes it from a lot of what else is out there.
