Track by Track Review


The Loser's Burial dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

An infectious melody invades your consciousness, even though it has a hokey nature to it. It is fun, and sorta friendly. A mid tempo fuzz precursor. "The Loser's Burial" sports an easy gate and soulful groove that gives it a very nice edge. Cool.

Wild Orgy dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Another take on the title track, with a more happy go lucky calliope kind of approach. Fun and silly too.

Losers Lament dotdotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

A silky smooth and clean guitar solo, sad, pristine, and very pretty.

The Dark Alley dotdotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Truly dark and ominous, danger in the back alley biker fuzz, with some pretty spacy effects. Pure evil! It's also been known as "Outer Surf." Ugly fuzzy bass under Davie's super smooth fuzz lead guitar. Way cool and grodie, with occasional monster growls. Watch out!

Cycle Party dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

"Wipe Out" influenced drums, a party ethic and progression, and mostly filler. Not much melody, but lots of borrowed bits, like a combination of "Wipe Out" and "Bongo Rock" with screaming party goers. Still, it's a very fun track!

Wild Angels Chase dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Another take on the title track, with a more happy go lucky calliope kind of approach. Fun and silly too.

The Last Ride dotdotdot
Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Super Fuzz "Blue's Theme" intro repeated over echoed tom toms... definitely scene piece, short and dark.
