Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Boss Martians - C'Mon Jenny c/w 30 Model A
|This gorgeous picture disc is in mono. The single is limited by the marginal production and mid-fi sound, and for those who haven't graduated from vinyl yet, there's an ample supply of vinyl distortion here to mask the performance. The A side is a not-too-thrilling vocal, though better than any on their recent album. I think they wanna be the Astronauts, but it doesn't quite work. It needs some hooks. The B side is a very cool instro with a choppy feel. |

Surf Pop Astronauts (Instrumental)
Cool choppy tune, production is limited, but the infectious nature of the tune comes through anyway. A whole lot of vinyl distortion... I mean a lot!
