Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Bikini Beach Band - Secret Agent Man
|One new track and two from the Leave Home album. The best by far is the tongue in cheek reinvention of "Anarchy In The UK."|
Picks: A Design For Life, Anarchy In The UK
Track by Track Review
Dark raspy sax makes the intro and bridges interesting, but otherwise "Secret Agent Man" is pretty pedestrian. There's really nothing special going on here.
Retirement Rock (Instrumental)
Inspired by a mustached interlude and a carafe of house red, this floats along looking for a sane way out. There isn't one.
Dinner Music (Instrumental)
Fluid, tropical, and completely inverted. Not like Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoia, but like a gaggle of guys in white dinner jackets playing to a Democratic fundraiser in DC where only the insincere are invited. Seriously puffed, completely breezy. Just think, this is what punk has come to. Maybe this sums it all up, but I love this.
