Collection: GS I Love Youdotdotdot
artworkThe group sound (GS) of Japan in the sixties was certainly an odd interpretation of western pop-rock and garage. Always not quite right, yet always intriguing. This is an adventure in phonetic lyrics and grodie fuzz. The point of reviewing it here is the inclusion of two instros from the Spiders.
Picks: Dynamite, Wipe Out

Dynamite dotdotdotdot
Fuzz (Instrumental)

Talk about your angular fuzz monsters! The circular riff and grodie backing are catchy and very surfable. Melodic and powerful, with a dark edge and a fifties break with a walking bass line. Cool track.

Wipe Out dotdotdotdot
Fuzz (Instrumental)

Well now, this is a grumpy fuzzy tweaky version of the Surfaris' classic "Wipe Out!" Extra dry and thin, yet very cool in a strange sorta way. Trashy drums and extra fun.
