Review of Atomic CD from WUTL Radio, New Orleans...

"The Cavaleros are exciting! Their loud and raw sound is fast and punchy and just the right amount of lo-fi... The Cavaleros oughta be in your collection." 


Review by Dave O Rama 'BC Musician Magazine'...

"Coming fast on the crest of their Banzai Pipeline EP Victoria’s The Cavaleros drop their new full length release Atomic! The Album. Fully immersed in the surf rock groove The Cavaleros embrace all the swagger and style with precise execution and a rebel spirit. On Atomic! The Cavaleros spit out ten fiery surf instrumentals delivered with blistering force and dripping with rock n roll bravado.

This fine tuned trio slather their music with buckets of sustain and heaping servings of Mexican spice. German “Sandy” Cavalero lays down a relentless jungle beat over Johnny Cavalero’s pounding undertones while producer and gang leader Eddie Cavalero unleashes a blistering five string assault that pays a complex and passionate tribute to the world of surf.

From their matching jailhouse stripes and mariachi jackets, to the cool album cartoon graphics, The Cavaleros have this whole thing dialed in. It’s Link Wray meets The Stooges at a bullfight on Waikiki Beach. Switchblade sharp and burning rubber, Atomic! The Album is sure to satisfy anyone with a taste for rockabilly, psyched out garage rock, and salty beach party ballistics. High octane and seriously shacked, with Atomic! The Album The Cavaleros leave you blissed, breathless, and totally noodled
The Cavaleros are playing this year's Nashville Boogie along with Wanda Jackson, The Sonics, Lee Rocker, The Blasters and many more!!!

The Cavaleros - Atomic EP now available on Bandcamp!

Only just a week old, it's catching on like wild fire across North America and Europe radio stations!  

Here's what WTUL Radio New Orleans said :

'The Cavaleros are clearly descended from the Link Wray tree of instrumentals, with ragged blown-out guitars and, of course, a Link Wray cover right at the second song - a good one at that. The opening track essentially a cover of the Frantics' Werewolf, and a song that fits their rough attitude well. The real winner here is the one that I believe tro be an original: Chinese Takeaway. When they get to speed the Cavaleros really take off and make a furious racket. These have a ton of energy that make me think they'd be great live, and I can imagine being breathless after hearing them pound that one out'

Cavaleros will be at VLV18!
                   Friday The 13th!

        A new review of a show we played a few months back written in U.K. Instrumental Magazine 'New Gandy Dancer'. By Rich Hagensen


...I gotta close off with a short review of a great live show we saw in Victoria last May. ‘Shaken Not Stirred…Shake Rattle and Roll’ was on the marquee for two nights of local rock’n’roll bands at an old Esquimalt bar The Cambie. The beer was cold and the bands were hot! Lots of rockabilly, rock’n’roll and garage rock by bands like Slim Sandy and the Hillbilly Boogie Band and Hank Angel and his Island Devils who sang songs from their independently released CDs. The climax of night two was an all instrumental surf trio THE CAVALEROS! Their one hour set was crammed with rockin’ covers of oldies like ‘The Man With The Golden Arm’, ‘Blue Moon Of Kentucky’ and ‘Miserlou’ plus some fantastic originals like ‘Big Sky’ ‘D For Dangerous’ and ‘Gypsy’s Curse.’ Lead guitarist Graham Fraser is one of the best I have heard in ages. He’s got the reverb and amp tones right down and double picks surf instrumentals channeling the spirit of Dick Dale while adding his own original style...

Show Review from Exclaim Magazine...

"...the Cavaleros' airtight set channeled Dick Dale's frantic, guitar-driven surf rock. Guitarist Graham Fraser's beefed up guitar tone rode wild and free on cascading sheets of rhythm..."
