Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Dunlop Devils - Men Go Mad
|The Dunlop Devils create moody and dangerous reverb drenched outlander surf epics. Sort of aurally like an upbeat version of the Centurions.|
Picks: Terra Elastika, Blue Horizon, Forbidden Planet, Omega 41, Super Rocket Rumble
Track by Track Review
"Terra Elastika" sports a catchy melody and extreme reverb. The wash of surf and mean low notes compliment the uplifting melody's bounce and flow. This fine instro, while murky, is very surf-real. Splendid!
Tribal Indian drums, moody bass, long dark chords. This is a monster on the loose, stalking the oblivious. Threatening and very emotional. I particularly like the in-your-blood feeling "Blue Horizon" portrays.
"Forbidden Planet" is a fast rage of surf danger and adventure. The melody is reminiscent of the Ape Men. This has a dramatic power to it, and a compelling arrangement.
Out at the edges of the galaxy lies "Omega 41," where dangerous races on the dusty surface pass the time of the contractors mining the underworld. Surf and stark wilderness abound.
This is a dark garagy version of The Breakers' "Super Jet Rumble," a song that has seldom been covered. Big surf whammy chords and murky reverb.
