artworkFour mostly fuzzy garage instros with one very surf instro amid the assault. The sound is distorted on most tracks, but "CCCP" still comes through as a pretty cool number.
Picks: Testarudo Ivar vs. Seaberg, Satanzlaten, CCCP, Gamberra

Track by Track Review


Testarudo Ivar vs. Seaberg dotdotdot
Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

Annoying clipped electro noise opens this somewhat surfable instro. Deep fuzz, clipped sound, and exotic percussion held together by a fluid bass line. Cleaned up, this might be cooler - it's hard to tell. Kinda cool.

Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

Whole track clipping here, with fuzz bass, exotic percussion, and a catchy little riff that moves slowly. Fuzz, distortion, and more fuzz. Harsh is an understatement.

CCCP dotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

"CCCP" is a pretty surfable song, with a riff born of the Amboy Dukes, and taken more into surf. Two guitars trade support and lead roles in differing parts of the song. While the sound is raw, the music is vital and solid surf.

Gamberra dot
Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

A very dirty song lumbers through a lowbrow progression accented with screams of dementia. Not much here, and the distortion of the recording or pressing is so bad that it's virtually unlistenable.
