Track by Track Review

Heat Lightning dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Fast drums and reverby thrash chords introduce a powered lead line. A little jammy, but full of danger and raw power.

XT-202 dotdotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

A unique opener launches this Big twango spyish tune. Some tentative playing, but original writing and arranging. This is ominous and reverby.

Nightfall dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Nightfall" is a rockin' surf instro in the general neighborhood of the Evasions. A rock beat with splashy guitar and a thumpy bass line. Fast and fun, with excellent surfability.
