|Germany's String Records issued this single by Finland's Hypnomen. It's a four+ star single that is held down by less than stellar fidelity, but it really cooks! These guys are definitely garage instro more than surf, but I like 'em. Their other single is way cool too (reviewed previously here). There's a definite feel of Link Wray about the whole thing, particularly Wray's "I'm Branded, " and that's the low point.|
Picks: El Hombre Rojo, I'm Branded, A Blade In The Sun, Strollin' On A Deathray
