Track by Track Review


Twist Twist dotdotdot
Frat (Instrumental)

"Twist Twist" is a rockin' fifties style sax honker with a touch of reverb. It's all frat and spunk. The Imperial Surfers really capture the small college band experience from so long ago.

Imperial Walk dotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

"Imperial Walk" is part surf, part frat, and part charm. The chunky rhythm and spunky energy are infectious. This is a really fun track with a surf edge and garage feel.

Hunka Hunka! dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Hunka Hunka!" is just as jammin' frat as you might expect, with basic sax and some splash. The drums are really cool here!

Si Yo Tuviera Un Martillo dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Using the Trini Lopez arrangement as a launch pad, The Imperial Surfers bring surf fun to Pete Seeger and Lee Hays' classic folk song. The surf guitar and sax trade off, and the band do the Trini Lopez chorus. This is way fun!
