Tornados is a British instrumental group of the 1960s who acted as the in-house back-up group for many of Joe Meek's productions. They also enjoyed several chart hits in their own right including "Globetrotter" and the number one hit "Telstar" which is famously the first British Number One in the US, and for a time were considered serious rivals to The Shadows. However the original group began to fall apart when bassist Heinz Burt left for a solo career, and by 1965 none of the original line-up remained.
