Track by Track Review


Dragonfly dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Buzzin' around like "Flight Of The Bumble Bee" gone deathly dangerous, "Dragonfly" is a monstrously thrashy metallic assault on all that's sacred about surf. Yee-haw, what a cool track!

Masked Man dotdotdotdot
Metal Garage Surf (Instrumental)

Rossini's "William Tell Overture" is all grodied out with big distortion and weird stereo guitar. Big thunder and energy like The Lone Ranger only wished for. Wow!

MisiGila dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a total thrashing of "Miserlou" and "Hava Nagila" mashed together as if there's no tomorrow! This is the sort of thing that trad fans hate, but those of us that appreciate the ever evolving nature of surf find fascinating. Giant, loud, and down right dangerous!

SS Banner Election Edition dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The engine revs, the dogs bark, and then "The Star Spangled Banner" invades your space. magnificent and silly all at once, with big twisted whammy chords and dangerous loudness.
