Surf (Instrumental)

In the "Banzai Pipeline" vein, the Astronauts do amazing things to Martin Denny's hit tune. It's not just hard to recognize, it's also quite cool. There's little exotica left.

Surf (Instrumental)

A rare surf instro, with a solid melody line, and a typically Astronauts delivery, though the lead is not double picked, the rhythm is damped and surfy as Hell! A fine track.
