Merrell Fankhauser - Merrell's Birthday Boogiedotdotdot
artworkThe songs on this CD-R are destined to be part of a forthcoming live release. A rousing version of "Wipe Out" is among the 5 tracks here. The band includes Merrell Fankhauser on guitar, alternating drummers Fito De Laparra - drums (Canned Heat), Ed Cassidy - drums (Spirit), now a young 80 years old, Mary Ramsey (10,000 Maniacs), and Rocket Morton - bass (Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band). The recordings here were made live on 12/23/03. Yikes!

Wipe Out dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The boys are having a great time playing this classic surf instro. Fito De Laparra's drums do it right, rocking and sockin' with the right beat and then some, and the rest of the band is spot on. It's hard not to like this good time recording.
