Track by Track Review


Hully Bach dotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

"Hully Bach" is an aggressive treatment of a Bach melody. Big whammy dips are off set by a goofy chorus. In the end, it's kinda jammy and ho-hum.

Moulin Rouge dotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

The catchy melody of "Moulin Rouge" is well suited to the stylings of Les Fantomes. Big twang and great rolling drums.

Que Ton Coeur Me Soit Fidele
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

"Que Ton Coeur Me Soit Fidele" ("That Your Heart Is Faithful For Me") is a throw away, with a dreadful chorus that puts it in the same league as so many old folks rock wanna be covers.

Tolhrac dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Sandy Nelson drums and rhythm guitar similar to The Animals' "I'm Cryin." The drum solo is the main feature. It's better than most, and on par with some of Sandy Nelson's cooler solos. Great energy and power!
