Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Deptford Beach Babes - Hawaii SE-8 EP
|The Deptford Beach Babes (aka Ella Guru's Voodoo Kitchen) issued this 2-song ep with one instro aboard for good measure. It's off the beaten path of surf, but fits well into the neighborhood. Besides, how can you ignore such fetching figures as those on the cover?|

Track by Track Review
"Surf Hell" uses whammy cords and beach imagery pretty well everywhere except in the break, where dissonant fuzz rules. The drums are really cool, and the long flowing bass notes crate a moody undertone. This is apart dangerous, part raw, and part holiday about to turn ugly. The psychedelic guitar mash-up towards the end is pretty heady.
