Track by Track Review


Southern Culture On The Skids - Come As You Are / Lucifer Sam dotdotdotdot
Surfadelic (Instrumental)

This SCOTS instro gradually grows in intensity, and features some fine melody lines over a gutty rhythm guitar, perfectly grumbly bass, and superb drums. Kurt Cobain's "Come As You Are" is fine enough, but Pink Floyd's marvelous "Lucifer Sam" simply rocks with semi-psychedelic snarl. Very strong!

Surf (Instrumental)

I don't know where this comes from, but it's crude, rude, and over compressed. That said, it's really fun to hear these guys pump out Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee" is merged with the track for a rootsy rockin' good time!
