Track by Track Review


Devil's Rumble dotdotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Desperate fuzz over dramatic tribal drums create a dangerously raspy sound. "Devil's Rumble" is all about the darkness. Its structure is as simple as a Link Wray anthem, and it's dirtier than all get out!

Funky dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Delicately double picked guitar plays a really brief number that's like a demented waltz. Very cool!

Make-Believe Love dotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Bongos and great drums, along with a two not bass line. It carries on for a long time, just the bass and drums. More a jam - certainly developed for a scene.

Cody's Theme dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Davie's fuzz monster sound delivers a somewhat surfy melody over a rolling backtrack. superbly simple melody lines and Davie's signature warbly whammy.

Hole In The Wall dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Choppy and simple, with a tasteful melody line that's a bit country and bit rock. It's an almost fuzzy track, and there is plenty of demented warble via whammy.

DevilŐs Carnival dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

"DevilŐs Carnival" sports dominant organ and fuzz in a somewhat go-go arrangement that's both cheesy and endearing. Not one of my faves, yet I found it hard to not like. Imagine Johnny and the Hurricanes on choppers!

The Ghost Story dotdotdotdot
Psychedelic Fuzz (Instrumental)

Drama, danger, psychedelic swirl, demented fuzz, piano madness, bass grumble, and drummed pomp. "The Ghost Story" is not a song really, but rather an exercise in disturbed scene setting. Quite powerful.

Devil's Angels dotdotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Melodic Davie Allan fuzz with twin guitars terrorizing the night. It's more melodic and less dangerous than "Blue's Theme," and just as interesting. Big grinding biker fuzz, and featuring some of Davie's tortured note bending.
