Eddie Angel's Dinosaurs - Jurassic Beat c/w Cavemandotdotdotdot
artworkNot too surfy, actually quite garagie single from '93. Eddie Angel is a great player. He's currently ridin' the strings in Los Straitjackets. There's enough coolness and reverb in "Jurassic Beat" to make the grade.
Picks: Jurasic Beat, Caveman

The tune that Eddie Angel's Dinosaurs issued as a single is stretched to its limits here with howling and growling and thumping tom toms, and surfy twang. Very cool.

Surf (Instrumental)

The growling low down tune that Eddie issued as a single and Los Straitjackets do live. It is so simple, yet it has a primal energy and draw through its mean sounding guitar, right from the get-go with the ominous "Cave Man" utterance. This is the sort of thing I usually don't care for, with it's super simple almost melody free structure, but ever since I saw Los Straitjackets do it live, I've been hooked, so pardon my pleasure at this tune.
