The Huntington Cads - Big Guitars, Western Styledotdotdotdot
artworkThe Cads go to the pasta palace in search of a deviation on surf and exotica, and the results are pretty darn nice. There's plenty of surf left as a main course, but there's no denying the marinara sauce influence and the Tim McCoy imagery. A very nice single.
Picks: The Rattler, Broken Arrow, Western Skies, The Vice Of Killing

Track by Track Review


The Rattler dotdotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Very cool number with a nifty melody and chunky rhythm track. Twang, surf, and a mysterious air. Less spaghetti than salt water taffy.

Broken Arrow dotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

A slow sorta Indian thing. A bit of Jorgen Ingman without the schmaltz. Pretty and enduring, and lots of surf imagery.

Western Skies dotdotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Cowboy rhythms, galloping drums, and twangy cactus surf guitar deliver a sinewy melody. Infectious - catchy - cool.

The Vice Of Killing dotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

an Enio Morricone spaghetti western soundtrack excerpt, with all the right bits to make it very cool, including the male chorus way in the back. Where's that alfredo sauce?
