Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Dragsters - Waikiki c/w Full Metal Sax
|This is the first and only single from the Dragsters's, whose 1989 album Stoked was issued on a major label. The Dragsters were an Ohio band with a solid sense of melody and a sound dangling between sax oriented surf-n-rod and eighties jangle pop. The a-side of this single is one of their fine vocals, "Waikiki." Leader Todd Novak is now in the wonderful Cowlicks.|
Picks: Surfing With The Godz
Track by Track Review
Big guitar bang and twang rides high in a hard driving bluesy format with nasty sax and ample guitar riffs. A line or two of "Peter Gunn" adds to the experience. Not very melodic, yet it has the power of attraction. The full title is "Full Metal Sax (Surfing With The Godz)."
