Drifting Sand - Birds Can't Surf c/w Shark! Shark!dotdotdot
artworkThe San Francisco Bay Area is home to many a fine experimental surf band. Drifting Sand take a tongue in cheek approach to surf, twang out fluffy melodies and keyboard slush, and in their own deliriously fun way, make it all work gloriously. It comes on powder blue vinyl. The A-side of the single is a hilarious tune called "Birds Can't Surf." This single was issued in 1993.

Shark! Shark! dotdotdotdot
Lunch Meat Surf (Instrumental)

This is a gremmie's view of the waves, or maybe a surfers view of the landlocked. Infectious, silly, fun, and interspersed with moronic cries of "Shark Shark," followed by a radio announcement of shark sightings. It ends with a scream of acknowledgment result from a status change from beachcomber to shark lunch.
