Shane Fenton and the Fentones - I'm A Moody Guydotdotdot
artworkThe Fentones were the backing band for the mythical Shane Fenton, who was portrayed by different front-men at different times. On their own, they were a Shadows oriented guitar instro band. Their instrumental prowess was nothing to scoff at, but was not often documented.

The Breeze and I dotdotdotdot
Shadows (Instrumental)

This a gorgeous and haunting rendition of Ernesto Lecuona's "The Breeze and I." It's not surf, being very Euro-centric, but it's in the style of some of the influences on various surf bands, including the Challengers and Australia's Atlantics. The performance is hot, and the guitar sound is very intense! Some double picked verses add to the mystery.
