The Buddies - The Beatle c/w Pulsebeatdotdotdot
artworkThis is a nice single with one really good side. As with way too many singles, the b-side is very cool, while the a-side leaves you wondering what the label was thinking. The Buddies were a Buffalo studio band.

The Beatle dot
Rock (Instrumental)

Trashy studio rock with horns... that great tribal Bo Diddley beat with way too much organ chording.

Surf (Instrumental)

Excellent surf guitar in a slightly sad shimmering format. Vibrato, reverb, and a little haunted. Excellent dribbling guitar. The riff is played out across interesting chords. While "Pulsebeat" is no ball of fire, it is very cool in a moody surf way. This was the b-side to "The Beatle."
