Track by Track Review


LTD A-Go-Go dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Mysterious distant power surf for the old Ford. It's big and swimming in large hall reverb.

Mr. Here dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

An unusual melody line introduces this sorta dramatic track. The main track is not very melodic, but just more of the same recurrent power drama.

Taos Pueblo dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Desert surf drive and whammy, glissando action, and a grodie low down riff. Power is the key here.

Experiment In Terror / Stalkin' dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

These two covers slowly oozed out in a dark corner of your imagination, where there is no waking up when it gets tough. Spooky, big, distant, ominous. Raw and intensely mean. The screaming sax is too cool!
