Dave Crimmen - Johnny Rocker [Soundtrack]dotdotdotdot
artworkDave Crimmen is a local (San Jose) rockabilly artist with two excellent CD's under his belt and a third in the works. His latest is currently (August 2001) challenging the likes of REM for initial airtime at some college stations. He has the opportunity to provide some music for a film in the works called Johnny Rocker. "Del Monico's Theme" was recorded for that project. It may never be released, but it merits review and exposure.

Track by Track Review

Del Monico's Theme dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The traditional "Walk Don't Run" drums and the walking rockabilly upright bass support a simple and exceptionally good guitar line, with rich whammy, vibrato, an adventurous island feel, and crisp energy. This is a highly infectious tune that bears multiple listenings. This is a really interesting track, well written, well played, and fresh.
