First off, despite their righteously badass nom de artiste Thorcraft Cobra are not purveyors of weed-hazed, beer-soaked SoCal Throttle Rock. Together, Billy Zimmer (Brown Eyed Susans) and Tammy Glover (Sparks) combine a knack for concise pop songwriting, a gift for crafting immediately engaging melody, and impeccable taste in rock and roll sonics into something that is both fresh and undeniable.
Zimmer and Glover first crossed paths when their respective acts were signed to the same label. “I started as a fan of his guitar tone” relates Glover, “but quickly fell for his wit and songwriting skills.” Their partnership coalesced when Zimmer decided to play a few demos he was working on for his labelmate. “I wasn’t super confident in it at all, to be perfectly honest. Then I played the songs for Tammy, and she was like, “whhhaaatttt”. And told me that it was good, and that she should play drums on it and we should put it out” explains Zimmer. “She also pointed at one of my vintage amps and asked, “What’s that?” “That’s my Thorcraft Cobra,” I told her. “That’s what we should call the band,” she said. I did not argue!”
