Track by Track Review


El Pajaro Taladro dotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

Long rough glissandos tell of a band that's just learning the idiom. The melody is not very surf, and the bass and drums are rock. It has the feel of playing at the edge of control speed wise. This is pretty interesting if for no other reason than its obscurity and honest abandon.

Ametrallando dotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

This is a strange version of The Surfaris' "Wipe Out!" The guitar is thin and uses distortion, while the organ plays a carnival thing. The drums are reasonably close and high energy. There is some really fast double picked flailing. Guitar note errors tell the tale of quick and dirty recording.
