Surfin' Eyeball dotdot
Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

The fact that the lasses don't vocalize doesn't translate into a surf instro. "Surfin' Eyeball" is a fuzzy almost frat garage rock instro. No melody, just a progression and "Wipe Out" inspired breaks. If you cast the nest wide enough, it fits, but it's much closer to the frat house than the breakwater.
