Hair Metal Podcast: Episode 13: TORA TORA! & HEADBANGERS BALL! w/ Guest CARL NORDSTROM!
Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST!
The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's.
Tora Tora is a very underrated and talented band. Tora Tora formed in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1985. Tora Tora started out as a local garage band then eventually got studio time when they won a local Battle of the Bands contest. After signing with A&M Records, they recorded their debut album Surprise! Attack in 1989. This album peaked on Billboard's Top 200 at No. 47 and featured the singles "Walkin' Shoes" and "Guilty." Tora Tora was the first Band from Memphis, Tennessee, to have a music video, “Walkin’ Shoes” on MTV. In 1992, their second album, Wild America, was released.
Kevin and Carl discuss many topics about Tora Tora including personal experiences seeing the band live, their studio albums and where the reunited band is now.
