Track by Track Review


I Wanna Be Sedated dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

In a cross between seventies punk and surf, Big Mascara rock on this Ramones cover. Glissandos, spunk, some reverb, and big energy make for a solid ride. Very cool!

Sheena Is A Punk Rocker dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a spunky version of The Ramones' "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker," with their humor and energy, but with cleaner lead guitar. Totally fun!

Pet Sematary dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a raucous live performance of The Ramones' "Pet Sematary," with no shortage of power and coolness. The audio is distorted on the lower end, and squished via AGC, but it's a splendid testimony to Big Mascara's live prowess.
