Ska Surfsploitation (Instrumental)

This is dark and grumpy, with ska rhythms on the keyboard and guitar, and ska horns as well. It's a very nontraditional ska-tization of Dick dale's arrangement, sans double picked guitar. Sax replaces guitar while the trumpet does its duty. It may be contrived in-studio, but it's mighty fun!
