Track by Track Review
RawLink WrayGarageRock (Instrumental)
This early version of "Huevosaurus" is big and Link Wray styled. Steeped in the glory that was "Cross Ties,"and dark and grungy. There are some wonderful feedback sequences too!
Blonde Girl In A Blue Volari (At 1000 MPH)
"Blonde Girl In A Blue Volari (At 1000 MPH)" is a minimalist riff rocker with an emphasis on grode. Spunky and rock solid.
Cowboy Surf (Instrumental)
Cowboys on the beach at Waikiki, whammy island tones, cool pre-Los Straitjackets ideas (no wonder they chose Bane to produce their albums). Very cool, playfully suave, almost exotica.
Large and fuzzinous, "I'm Branded" is done with the deliberate pacing that Link Wray and his Wray Men intended. It's dark two chord riff is splendid spread across the speakers!
Grungy guitar and bass over rockin' drums deliver a dangerous rock crasher. There's drama and anguish in these tones, and the long feedback sustain in the middle in mind numbing! Whoa!
Thick guitars and bass plod in back alley perfection. "Mistery MTN (SK)" is heavy and ominous, with no shortage of loudness!
