Track by Track Review


Hydrorobots dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A clockwork gong lightly introduces this heavy surf pounder. "Hydrorobots" is a hard driving song with lots of splash and power. The darkness of the melody is somewhat limited by the demo sound, though I dare say this must really rip live!

Sea Of The Ocean
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a dreadfully lo-fi version of "Sea Of The Ocean" that's complete trash. A fiery performance lost in unlistenable sound.

Sunset Surf dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a splendid cover of The Truants' "Sunset Surf," with loud splashy sound and all the drama of the original. Great garage surf!
