Track by Track Review


Tiger Talk dotdotdot
Garage (Instrumental)

This is really just a variant of "Wipe Out" with tiger growls and no drum breaks. It's pretty murky, but I still like it. This is probably the same band as issued "Moonride."

Roadhouse dotdot
Garage (Instrumental)

"Roadhouse" is an empty jam that sounds like it might have been live. It goes nowhere.

Weird dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Tremolo is the operative word. Dark throbbing fuzzy tremolo sax, a gloomy funeral beat, booming bass, and tremolo guitar dangerously ooze horror and raspy danger. This superb 1958 single was originally issued on Fernwood 1003 c/w "Going My Way" (vocal).
