Track by Track Review

The Model dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This new cut of "The Model" is big and loud and assaultive hard edged modern surf. Large fuzz guitar throughout in a complete inversion of the earlier versions. Kraftwerk's "Das Model" gets a new harsh lease on life!

Danger Man dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Big thrashing and hard charging, this is one mean short board assault. Damn intense! Not really melodic, but very rich and nervous.

Q. Est Ce Que Nous Sommes En Vacances?
A: Oui, Nous Sommes En Vacances
Surf (Instrumental)

Big drama and track wide reverb thrash chord intro fades to bring in a moody and murky big twang melody. This is a melodic and haunting number with a booming large cavern sound.

Tiger 100 dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Tiger 100" crashes the reverb and thrashes the double pick at breakneck speed. Thrusters across huge stormy green walls! Manic and nasty, and oh-so satisfying.

Viva Quatro dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Fast and punishing, "Viva Quattro" is inverted to a soft distant slush with mondo bizarre narration. Quite unique.

Get Your Coat On, You've Pulled dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Get Your Coat On, You've Pulled" is a fast track with a very big attack and thundering wall of intensity. Dramatic and threatening, with cool percussion and monster cave sound. Way cool!
