Cheeky Blues dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Tweaky watery delayed electronics introduce this big twang guitar stinger. generally in the go-go whammy bar corral, "Cheeky Blues" features tortured guitar fronting a rock solid rhythm section. As the electronics pan about, the song comes to an end. Intense and fun.

2001 Cerveau Salade dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

One foot in spaghetti western via tremolo twang, one in surf via shimmering chords, and a great bass and drum backing. "2001 Cerveau Salade" has a friendly melody line and intense sound. This is a superb piece of music. Engaging and memorable, and well suited for the open road.

Vixen Vampira dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Liquid chords, dangerous curves, and drama haunt "Vixen Vampira." It's structured like classic spaghetti, sports intense tone, and flows in an undulating manner, all the while being nervously edgy and spooky. The Theremin creates a sci-fi feeling, while the muted surf guitar cries out for the curl. Really cool!
