Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Biarritz Boys - MySpace
|These four tracks are culled from the web. The Biarritz Boys are very reminiscent of The Treble Spankers, but garagier. Great writing, excellent playing, solid arrangements, and serious edge. While these are muddy demos, this must be a band to reckon with.|
Picks: Golesh, Sex Wax, Whatever Happened, Young Gun: Loose Cannon
Track by Track Review
This is a straightforward rockin' cover of The Intrepides' "Golash." Lots of energy and fiery glissandos. Great rhythm, bass, and drums under speedy and very good lead guitar.
Weird panoramics with drums center, bass and rhythm left, and lead guitar right. The guitar lines here are somewhat reminiscent of The Treble Spankers. Ample spunk and mysterious flair, and a stompin' bridge.
Whammy chords and mysterious melody lines, great drums, and reverb splash. "Whatever Happened" rocks and romps across some mighty dangerous waves on zigzag shortboards. Very cool.
Dark chords, a largely ominous melody, and dribbling glissandos. "Young Gun: Loose Cannon" is slow and moody and dangerous. The imagery is lumbering and the threat serious.
