Rick Lawndale Band - Mangy Old Dog c/w Natasha c/w Cowboy Surfer Funkdotdotdotdot
artworkOne very intriguing instro creeps out from this 4 song demo. It's a haunting track with a strange appeal. Three introspective vocals ("Mangy Old Dog," "Cowboy," and "Surfer Funk") all about being in this band add to the mystique that is the Rick Lawndale Band.

Surf (Instrumental)

This is a spooky, almost haunted song, with shimmering fast vibrato affecting the sadness of the melody. The churchy organ and relentless rhythm guitar add an air of reverence, but for what lost soul? The structure is almost psychedelic in the early-mid sixties sense. Very cool!
