Track by Track Review


Billy Boom dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Billy Boom" is a raucous near surf instro with a big drum break and surfisms on the guitar. Brash and splashy, with loud surf guitar. It's very interesting to hear how surf was transmuted in Africa.

Manga Madura dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Dark surf guitar plays a frat progression and jammin' melody line, with a frantically double picked bridge. Really dangerous and primitive.
