Track by Track Review
This is a riff rocker with a fun sound and melody line. Often on the jammy side, and in a bluesy mold, "All Butt" has its moments. Some muted notes create a slight link to surf.
"Snakehips" is a very standard bluesy jam with a touch of twang out front. Nothing special here at all.
Dick Dale and his Del-tones' classic "Surf Beat" is badly recorded, but energetic and fun. The sound, while not really pristine, does give it the surf sound. It's a straight cover with a very fine glissando and excellent punch. It's over-compressed, but also intense.
