Track by Track Review
This is just about as mean as it gets. Guttural, deep low-E lead riffs, and a real feeling of dangerous confrontations about to happen. Great reverb, evil tones, and forlornned sax. This is of of those tracks that you just need. This LA band self released this on their own Safari label.
Dark richly whammied lead guitar plays a mid tempo melody over a tribal surf beat. Some really ice muted transitions and melancholy sax breaks fill out this fine number. While not nearly as cool as its a-side "Rumble On The Docks," this is nonetheless a fine vintage surf instro.
