The Exotics - Goofy Footdotdot
artworkThe Exotics sport a dryer sorta seventies guitar sound that somehow works pretty well. The cover art is even a cartoon parody of the Ventures "Walk, Don't Run" album, pointy bra hussy and all.

Track by Track Review


Goofy Foot dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Ocean waves break on the shore as the Exotics break into a solid performance of the Lively Ones' "Surf Battle." Demo sound makes it a little murky, but the band plays with power and style. Hard driving and very cool.

Guitar Twist dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The "What's I Say" progression is the basis for this, with chop and chomp guitar verses and what ends up being more like a wild surf jam than a song.

The Switch dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Dry fuzz guitar and a frat band garage sound with many derivative borrowings. This cover of the Ventures' "The Switch" is fun, but not memorable.
