The Hollow Grinders - Bradley's Dunny Crouchdotdotdotdot
artworkThis seven inch single is a bit of a sleeper. It has a low key sound, but sneaks into your ram and stays there. I found that after a couple of listenings, I was hooked.

New Zealand's only surfband is home to the colorful characters Otis Uh! - guitar, Eddie Hodad - guitar, Hank Special - bass, and Dirk Thrust - drums.
Picks: Bradley's Dunny Crouch, Theme From 'Bastard Squad'

Bradley's Dunny Crouch dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

An adventurous melody line amped with whammy chords portrays a journey down a coastal highway, and a vision of a standout ride. The damped break is very cool, as is the ska rhythm guitar. "Bradley's Dunny Crouch" is traditional, yet modern feeling.

Theme From 'Bastard Squad' dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Fast and moody, "Theme From 'Bastard Squad'" is cool and aquatic, with dribbled double picked guitar lines and an mystical ride on a legendary wave feel. Excellent track.
