Kill, Baby Kill! play tuff surf based material that is very much the same track to track. Mostly fast and powerful big drama surf, but it's just all too much the same. That said, there is substantial power here.

Track by Track Review


Love Theme For A Twisted Mind dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Fast and garagy, whammy laden, bass boomed, and driven by busy drums. "Love Theme For A Twisted Mind" is strong and powerful. It's segmented with sampled narratives.

Psycho Beach Party 3000 dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Big adventure melody, racing drum action, and very dramatic sound. "Psycho Beach Party 3000" is similar to Hawaii Samurai's "Psycho Beach Party," but certainly more direct and garagy. Great chords, dark double picking, and an extremely powerful performance.

Suppose The Doomsday Cults Were Right dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Danger and angular lines, not unlike The Amino Acids at times. "Suppose The Doomsday Cults Were Right" is all ominous.

Hunting For The Dead dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Romping energy and gloomy imagery. The organ whistles while the guitar shreds. Simply manic!

Turn Your Insides Out dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Turn Your Insides Out" is a relentless rant, with loud fast delivery. Intense and rocked with great drum work.

Duck & Cover (live at The Nick) (bonus track) dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This track is not on the release, but is a live bonus track. Mostly cruddy sound, but an interesting glimpse into their live energy. Mostly very muddy.
