Collection: Big Beat Beach Partydotdotdot
artworkThis 1985 British comp is targeted at the beach party, not the surf. It does contain two surf instros. Much of this is lo-fi garage or psychobilly, including memorable acts like Joe King Carrasco, wild bands like pre-throatcore act Turkey Bones and the Wild Dogs, and vintage crazies like Hasil Adkins and the Legendary Stardust Cowboy.
Picks: Surf Taboo, Dragster

Surf (Instrumental)

This great track seques into "Down At The B (beach) Club." It is rhythmic, spirited, melodic and fun. It is based on a solid and simple melody line and progression. This is among my most-often-played Surfin' Lungs tracks.

Surf (Instrumental)

This is a romping cover of the Impact V's obscuro "Riptide," played full bore with the dwell set at 10.
