The Crusaders - Wave To The Gravedotdotdot
artworkThe Crusaders are one of the most fun garage bands around. This CD contains lots of vocal delights and one instro, plus a couple of crude ancient videos, one of which is a superbly silly live performance of the Nova's "The Crusher."
Picks: August Bank Holiday island, Fisherman's Basket

Track by Track Review


August Bank Holiday island dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Aggressive fuzz and twang instrumental joy, with a cool melody riff and hard driving drums. Crusaders is a dangerous, yet friendly instrumental born of surf, glissandoed, and garage edgy. Very cool!

Fisherman's Basket dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

What a wild time! All manor of stuff is being thrown about, and the boys are staggering and posing and taunting. The boys are in full knight regalia for this show. The sound is desperately distorted, yet the dry humor and lowbrow ethics of the band overcome it all. This is one of the funniest videos I've seen in ages.
