Casino Volante - Their Motive GREED! Their Method MURDER!dotdotdot
artworkCasino Volante are a mysterious British outfit. This 4-track ep was issued in March of 1999. The music is kinda surfy, but more chord dominated than that usually implies. The fourth track here is a spooky semi-romantic vocal called "One Silver Dollar."
Picks: Generic Surf Song, Five Finger Discount, Special Red

Track by Track Review


Generic Surf Song dotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

"Generic Surf Song" is a rhythm dominated instro with a rockabilly beat and a chorded splash. Hinting of the "Pipeline" rhythm, this song is catchy and a little ominous.

Five Finger Discount dotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

Twangy surfabilly thrash, dominated by chords and a dark wash or reverb, "Five Finger Discount" is slightly dramatic and fluid.

Special Red dotdotdot
Spaghetti Western Surfabilly (Instrumental)

"Special Red" is more surfy than the rest of the tracks here, but also like a chorded spaghetti wstern on the edge of being nasty.
