Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Eric and the Norsemen - Get It On
|Kansas garage mavens Eric and the Norsemen played garage and top forty, but used a surf backline for a reverby sound. The lead track is their theme, which is a surf jam with narration and band introductions.|
Picks: Norsemen's Theme
Track by Track Review
OK, so this is a band theme, and it's pretty jammy, but it's also vintage Kansas surf-n-roll. It has an intro, and a pure surf pattern to drive the track. Riffs from "James Bond Theme" and others run between band member introductions. The surf 'n' psych groove is very cool! Boy is this period!
