|Great live performances in lo-fi mono with stereo crowd... don't know if this is actually live or not, but it sure is a vibrant performance! Live At The Shameful Tiki is part of the Wet Sounds release.|
Picks: Zombie Stomp, Jungle Sunrise, Attack Of The Trophy Wives
Track by Track Review
Tribal and after dark surf credible, with fine writing and arranging. Spunky and scary, with monster on the loose. Stereo crowd ambiance... but is it live?
The crowd sounds continue as the band plays a very cool instro. A splendid melody line, solid arranging, great drums, and perfectly suited bass. "Jungle Sunrise" is haunting and tribal, with a great beat.
Attack Of The Trophy Wives
Employing much of the (Denver) Road Runners' "Road Runnah" with substantial transformation, "Attack Of The Trophy Wives" is an infectious and splendid instro. Power and a catchy riff played with spunk and whammy. Very nice.
A simple riff and gourd, with strong drums and spunk. "Cactus Alley" is a tasteful instro, but it seems less developed than the rest of the tracks here.
