artworkOrgan & guitar - quirky 60's go-go surf. Mostly cool... cheesy but cool. Major nod to Booker T. & the MG's.

Track by Track Review


Rotisserie Twist dotdot
Go Go (Instrumental)

Riffy organic 60's go-go grind.

Onions Only dotdotdot
Organ (Instrumental)

Very Booker T. & the MG's influenced with a nod to Beat Generation.

Hurricane dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Major gutty guitar lines based on Amon Duul II's "All The Years Round." Quite a nice number!

Trepidations dotdotdotdot
Jazz Surf (Instrumental)

Low down semi-jazz number with major guttiness. Quite cool... Surf tiki bar hammerers.

Jug-R-Not dot
Soundtrack Party Sci-Fi (Instrumental)

Major label / film studio party psych wah wah... ho hum.

Sensible Shoes For Barbie dotdotdot
Carnival Sideshow (Instrumental)

Carnival side show cute and fun, but no surf at all.

"H" Is For Harlot dotdotdot
Big Guitar Organ (Instrumental)

Cheap thrills sampled intro, then organ & military drums, and finally a big guitar line... cool.

The Bailiff dotdotdot
Organ (Instrumental)

Booker T. & the MG's organ.

Dia de los Muertos dotdot
Spy Lounge (Instrumental)

Organ & guitar combine for a spy lounge track.

Mall Driver dotdotdot
Organ (Instrumental)

Tape hiss and too much organ mar this track. Sorta "Raw Hide" on "Let's Make A Deal!" Very strange!

Gin Rummy dot
Organ Bar Band (Instrumental)

Organ bar song a la Vegas grindola.
