The Exports - Car Hop c/w Seat Belts Pleasedotdotdotdot
artworkFor a major label single, the Exports' "Car Hop" c/w "Seat Belts Please" is illusive. Only the A-side has been comp'd on a bootleg 12" in mono, and surprisingly in stereo on CD.
Picks: Car Hop, Seat Belts Please

Track by Track Review


Car Hop dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This surf instro is a magnificent example of the roots of the twangy sound that has become identified with Los Straitjackets. With good reason, they cover this fine record. Infectious, bouncy, and very fun.

Seat Belts Please dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a pretty twangy surf instro with a lumbering gate and sort of R&B melody line, though it's delivered with a surf feel. Not as interesting as the A-side, but very good.
