|The Del-Vetts were a great garage band from Chicago with surf roots, as their lone instro release "Ram Charger" illustrates.|

Track by Track Review
"Ram Charger" is melodic and chunky. It's a riff surfer with cool drums and tone. Not mush surf emanated from Chicago, but it's clear from this track that The Del-Vetts were rooted in the genre. This is the same song as the Venturas recorded, though they titled it with a dash ("Ram-Charger"). I don't know which is the original.
