Tarantula TonePrint by Sune Rose Wagner

Elements from the 50s’ instrumental music, rockabilly and surf, are to be found in many Raveonettes songs. As a tribute to the late American singer and guitarist, Jody Reynolds, Sune Rose Wagner created this TonePrint for the Hall Of Fame Reverb, calling it “Tarantula” after the B-side on Jody Reynolds’ single “Thunder”/”Black Tarantula” (1959). With its long springy reverb-tail this TonePrint is nostalgia in its purest form.

LA seemed a suiting place to meet up with The Raveonettes’ Sune Rose Wagner to collaborate making his signature TonePrints. After all, the big city life is a central theme in many songs by the Danish duo. Wagner clearly knew what types of sounds he was going for, changing parameters in the same steady pace as the traffic lights guided the cars across the main street you could see from his penthouse apartment.

This TonePrint he created with Jody Reynolds’ (1932-2008) reverb-sound from the late 1950s in mind. Reynolds biggest hit single was "Endless Sleep", which reached #5 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 1958. Reynolds' follow-up song, "Fire of Love", from August the same year became Reynolds' last charting hit, and since he became somewhat disremembered. The last decade’s revival of surf, country and rockabilly has nevertheless secured the late artist a deserved renascence.
