Track by Track Review
A cowboy beat and very cool Middle Eastern melody played on violin or some such combine to create an almost eerie and dramatic piece. This could easily be surfed up.
This amazing instrumental sports echoed guitar chunking out a fast surf thing. It's exotic, playful, and very cool. Imaginative writing and manic playing with heavy effects on the surf guitar make this ultra rare track a must have. very cool!
Siluetler - Dede Efendi 66
Unlike "Lorke Lorke," this is a very light weight number with a simple melody line and almost carnival feeling. The polka beat and whistling organ make it so.
