Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Five Thundertones - Banshee c/w Mr. Big
|This is one obscure single. I couldn't find anything out about it at all beyond the liner notes of Lenny and The Thundertones CD, which really doesn't go beyond citing it as an Astra single from 1962.|
Picks: Banshee, Mr. Big
Track by Track Review
"Banshee" sports a wet reverbed guitar with muted splash in places. It doesn't employ a traditional surf beat, and is sometimes a bit jammy, but it's an extremely obscure surf instro.
This has pretty murky sound, and has some distortion on the lead guitar, plus incredible drums. The rhythm guitar is inspired by "Flamingo Express." A tone of energy!
