Surf (Instrumental)

Now, there's a band name for you. It fits their sound, crunchy and percussive. The melody is a great little riff played in damped reverb chop attacked strings. Totally excellent. The liner notes say that the Cruchendoes were formed by Chuck Rio of the Champs. This is totally excellent.

Surf (Instrumental)

This classic melody gets a pumpin' surf treatment at the hands of Chuck Rio. It rocks for sure, and is among the more interesting of the rock covers out there. The drums rip, and the guitar is double picked at times.
