artworkThe video is grainy and small, but it's perfectly clear that the band is rockin' and the punters are diggin' it.

Track by Track Review


Inseguimento dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This track rips. Its fast and furious guitar work and frantic drums power it along. Double picked and aggressive.

Shanghaied dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The Wailers' "Shanghaied" is reverbed and rockin', with dribbled double picked lines here and there, and plenty of spunk.

Let's Go To The Beach dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Larry and the Loafers' "Let's Go To The Beach" is all party fun, with chants intact. The audience clearly understands!

Playa Inferno dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Unlike the rest of the videos, this video uses audio from their album. This is a professionally done video with very nice dissolves and lighting.

"Playa Inferno" starts out gently from a gradually rising tinny sound, as if from a pocket radio. Then, it's full bodied and wonderful. Rich and moody, with sadness and a little danger lurking about. It always sounds distant, like life happening below the cliff you are "getting over it" on.
